a guy came over to admire it and tell me about his 1948 Plymouth truck that is in pieces. And he started to sound like a lot of us. He was telling that it was probably going nowhere because it was difficult getting up and down to work on. He said he was 70.

Huh...just a kid and he's having a hart time crawling out from under?
Just wait till he's our age Ron, then he'll be ready to throw in the towel
and put in a lift.
Had to remind myself what a 1948 Plymouth pickup truck looked like. Don't really
remember seeing many of them since Ford and Chevy pretty much dominated back
in those days. I was very surprised to see how many Mopar's there were for sale ranging
in price from $5k to $15k and in pretty nice condition...... at least in the photos.
If you think finding parts to restore a Stovebolt is a challenge at times, I can't imagine
what a pain in the ars it would be for a pre or post war Plymouth.

My first find when looking for a truck was 50's Dodge it was somewhere around 1982. Had one rust spot on the left front fender. A lady's husband had just died and she put it up for sale. Back then if I remember correctly she wanted $1500 and I thought it was a way too much but I ended up paying $1200 for 54 in 1983. The man looked rather spry but who knows. If you go to the FB page for Plymouth Owners Club, one of the members has a Mopar parts business and there is Andy Bernbaum. Guess who answers a lot of questions about parts and specifications. 2 Ton is on there.
