'47 Dodge cowl vent plenum rusted out


Recommended Posts

I just took possession of a '47 Dodge coupe (I am a complete newbie, green as the new-mown grass).  I think the cowl vent plenum is rusted beyond repair and this may be a common problem with this vintage.  Is there a source for a replacement plenum, or is this something that I'm going to have to search for in a salvage yard?  Am I barking up the wrong tree althougther and need to patch up/repair the existing plenum?  Thank you in advance for your help.
