    1952 Plymouth Suburban

    Have a guy wanting to trade me a 1952 Plymouth Suburban for my 1970 AMC Rebel SST Wagon. Was wanting to know on the Plymouth were can I get the wiring upgrade to make it a 12 Volt system & is it hard to change over? What alternator would fit the car? After I upgrade the wiring plan to upgrade from generator to alternator. For right now that would be about it would need to do new plugs & wires & distributor etc.. was told car cam from Florida & has about 60K on it & has been sitting for a few years.

    yea I know working on getting title taken care of & going to contact previous owners an get more info on car. As of right now just have under $300 in the car. An going to get tires & glass done to it were I live in the city so nobody says anything about it. The car I know will need radiator & cooling fan stuck & hard to tell what all it will need to get it running. The sticker on the windshield said 79/80 so its been off the road for a long time & looks like just sitting was told it was sitting in a building. Just taking it one step at a time first thing is title then get door glass replaced then wheels & tires so I can move it & then work on getting it running.

    ok yea looking to put new tires on rear an went to Coker tires an found the factory size for the 52 Plymouth is 205/75 R15 there are 14" on there now. Was wondering what wheels will fit it OEM & aftermarket an put some chrome 15" wheels on it an put 4 new tires on it. An on the wheels lugs on this car do you have to have left handed thread for left side & right handed tread for right side? Will locking lug nuts fit these cars?

    Was putting a rush on it it was raining off an on the weekend an I was doing it when it was not raining. Was just putting paint on it as fast as I could when I got done it poured it down. It had surface rust all over it an lots of places no paint just bare metal.

    That is before & after shots put some color on it real fast over the weekend in between it raining. It still needs the over spray cleaned up an some other stuff but not bad for $50 Rustoleum paint & primer somebody painted it light blue at some point this is Aqua Blue. Going to have it painted right later on just right now wanted to sand all the surface rust off an protect that body & now work on getting it running & then do the body work on it.

    I am on the AMC forum to & I am going to buy some books on it & already wrote Chrysler Historic & see what they say. Going to get all the parts I need this winter an plan to have it on the road by spring. The guy I got it off of said everything was in the back when I got the car home found several things missing so got to see what all I am missing. Also this is a factory A/C car & somebody took all the A/C setup off the car so I am going to put it all back on next year as well.

    On the windshield washer pump would mine be electric or Vacuum? Also missing the windshield wiper arms. On the windshield washer pump would I want to upgrade it to better system or keep factory setup?
