1951 Plymouth parts colour


Guest
 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm painting all parts under the hood of my 1951 Cranbrook. The engine I used silver paint and the generator and starter I painted them with black. What is the original colour of the Oil Breather Cap, the Oil Filter Cannister, Air Cleaner, Oil Filling Tube and Battery Support ? In my car the oil breather cap and battery support are red, the oil filter cannister and air cleaner are black. <BR>

The <a href="http://www.p15-d24.com/">P15 D24</a> web site lists the colors things should be painted in the engine compartment for 1946-48 Plymouths. Go to the reference section then select "Paint Details" in the section topics. They don't list their source of authority so I don't know how AACA judges would accept it.<P>I suspect that the 1951 is pretty much the same as the 1946-48 in regards to engine compartment colors.<P>I don't know of a similar set of web available information for the 1951. You might also try posting this same question on the Plymouth Club's <a href="http://classicar.com/clubs/plymouth/plymchat.htm">Discussion Group</a><p>[This message has been edited by TodFitch (edited 04-13-2000).]

Hello Tod !<P>Thank for the hint. I have posted this question in the Classicar's Plymouth forum for two months, without any answer.<BR>I checked the site you told me and I think the information there is useful, however I still have doubts about the oil breather cap and oil filter cannister colours. Do you know a 1951 Plymouth owner to ask this question ?<BR><P>------------------<BR>

There is a fellow in the local Chrysler products club with an early fifties Plymouth. I think it is a 51. I also think he will be on the tour that starts tomorrow.<P>I will ask him when I see him (and maybe look at his engine compartment). He is more into touring than into shows, so I am not sure how authentic his colors are. Even his car is not authentic he may know a good source to get definitive information.<P>I will let you know Monday evening on what I find out.<P>Tod Fitch<BR><P>------------------<BR>1933 Plymouth PD

Julio,<P>The car I was thinking of was a 1950 rather than a 51. Anyway the technical expert from the California Chrysler Products Club was there and both he and the owner of the 50 Cranbrook told me the oil filler cap should be black. The oil filter could be a number of colors depending on which vendor Chrysler was using that day. Apparently most of them were from Fram and so "Fram Orange" is a safe color to use. I don't know if Fram distributes products where you are (Brasil?). If they do, just match the color from a modern oil filter.<P>Regards,<BR>Tod Fitch

Thanks for the help Tod !!<P>Fram distributes products here in Brazil. By the way, do you know where I could buy bumper guards for my 1951 Plymouth in the US?<P>Regards,<BR>Julio<BR>1951 Plymouth Cranbrook<BR>1928 Chevrolet National<P>------------------<BR>
