For Sale 1948 Plymouth P15 Sedan SOLD

Recommended Posts

Car Is Sold

Reluctantly selling my 1948 Plymouth P15 Super Deluxe sedan. Selling, only because I found and bought back the first car I ever owned – a 1932 Dodge – so the Plymouth has to go due to lack of garage space.

This car has never seen rain or snow in the nine years I’ve owned it. It came from South Carolina and is an original 77,000 mile car.

This is a solid car. No rust in the floors, inner or outer rockers. You won’t have to replace the usual Mopar rust outs with this vehicle.

this is a nice driver ready for a weekend outing. just turn the key and drive it.

Since I have owned the car the following work has been done.

New master cylinder

New brake hoses

New clutch (this year)

Rebuilt pressure plate (this year)

New throw-out bearing (this year)

New rubber brake, clutch and accelerator pedals

New rubber steering column pad

All new wiring in the original pattern for Rhode Island Wiring Co.

Rebuilt starter and generator

New voltage regulator

NOS Exhaust manifold

NOS heat gauge that actually works.

Rebuilt all instruments. All work, but the gas gauge is a bit iffy at times.

All new knobs for the dash

Rebuilt entire front suspension – upper and lower arms, new shocks

New rear shocks

New WW tires – less than 700 miles

Cleaned and flushed engine – all freeze plugs removed and replaced. Water passages thoroughly cleaned

Engine cleaned and painted with POR-15 engine paint in the original silver.

NOS exhaust manifold with working heat riser

New spark plug wires with “waterproof” sealers over the plugs

New battery (this week)

New battery and ground wires – correct six volt

Radiator flushed and pressure tested.

New radiator hoses with correct period clamps

Firewall and inner fenders repainted

Firewall grommets replaced with NOS

The car runs perfectly – no smoke, no overheating. It drives great. Cruising speed is a comfortable 55, but you could install an overdrive unit if you want to hit the interstate.

Paint is 80% original. It’s a 15 footer with a few nicks and scrapes. No dents or rust holes. Stainless is nice, one or two small dimples that can be taken out easily. The car has two PERFECT lower stainless trim pieces. These are almost impossible to find these days – especially on the passenger side where they usually got crunched by the curb.

The bumper chrome is original and presentable, but far from show quality.

The pot metal tail lights, door handles and hood ornament have light pitting, but look pretty good.

The interior was redone before I bought it. It’s nice, but not in the original pattern.

All the lights work

Doors open and close solidly. All window glass goes up and down smoothly.

New Rebuilt vacuum wiper motor.

The car needs:

A new speedometer cable

New rubber for the front vent (available from Steele)

New rubber on the door sills (service available)

A new home

Price is $6000 firm. You already know I have more than that in it, but I enjoy working on these old cars and I’m not out to make a killing. Just don’t hot rod it.

The car is located in Southern Illinois
