vibration on a 48 Plymouth

I have a 48 Plymouth Special Deluxe Coupe that I have a vibration in when I drive down the road. It starts when I reach about 30 miles per hour and seems to get worse as I pick up speed to 65. Tomorrow I am going to get the tires rebalanced and see if maybe there are flat spots on tires from setting up. If anyone can give me any suggestions I would like to try them. I don't remember if this car has a weight on the drive shaft for balance or not. If it does maybe it fell off. I'm at a wits end on this so please respond I will take each and everyones opinion to consideration and try.
Thanks,
Lbrauer

You need to post this question in the Suspension - Brakes - Steering section.
Have you checked the u-joints yet ?

You're certain to get some good suggestions and help here, but if not, try doing a search for "vibration" at the P15-D24 website. If there is any issue with your 1948 Plymouth, someone there will be able to help you out.

After you check the wheels and tires check the u-joints as mentioned. If those check out good then have your D/L checked for balance.
