The P15 D24 Forum has a tech chapter.
As far as I remember, You can find a color list for engine + related assemblies there.
Block and head should be silver 1950.
Greetings from Düsseldorf!
I can't offer you a bit of advice about the colors, but let me welcome you to the club. Someone will have the knowledge you need. I hope you can get your car on the road soon. I feel your pain about the 12V conversion; the previous owner of my 39 changed over to 12 volt, too. I kept it 12V. The POC facebook page is very active. Be sure to post there, too. Have fun with your new car.
Hi.  Kind of an introduction & a question.  I just got registered today & have a question on the original engine paint color for my 1950 Plymouth Deluxe 218 engine.    Also not sure if the dark green & white on the car are correct for this year.   I appear to be the third owner & it originally came out of New Mexico.   I purchased it from previous owner here in Texas.  Bought the car last month and have been busy going thru a lot of stuff to get everything working such as tune up, vacuum booster, muffler & tailpipe, & trouble shooting & replacing the poor wiring job from the 12 volt conversion done some years ago.  Many things just were not hooked up due to them not installing voltage reducer.  Lots of things just were not working but I am about done.   Installing new voltage reducer this weekend & checking & changing if necessary the rotation on both heater & defrost motors. Also installing a rebuilt original radio as the car had original factory deletes on this. 
I am getting close to having enough done to get it back on the road & should be there sometime next week.

Go, As usual great pix and story line.. I have not been to Germany since 1991, would like to go again before I'm to old to travel..
My oldest son is going to Germany, Latvia and Italia today on a business trip.. He always laments to me his regrete's that my wife and I had not planned his birth better, he was born in the states two months after we left Germany.. Of course in 1958 who could have foreseen the changes to occur in world politics.
My lady friend and I really enjoy touring in my '03 Merceds CLK 430 AMG conv.. My '39 Plym conv is great around town, however, the 430 is much better out on the open road.. Wm.

The west side of the upper Rhine, from Straßburg down to Mulhouse, is Alsace/ France.
Just 4 hrs from Düsseldorf in beautiful weather in open car at constant 75 mph.
This is very comfortable riding (at ~ 2100 rpm with George Ashe´s Overdrive!).
No traffic jams on the Autobahn! We stayed 5 nights south of Straßburg, Hotel choosed because of parking possibility!
Some cities (Colmar, Riquewihr, Kaysersberg) were a bit crowded- but I can´t blame tourists while beeing one :)
Some others were very calm and all are beautiful.
The Vine Route itself was very free- lots of km we were the only car to see!
At Turckheim I visited a privatly initialised Museum of the 1945 liberation of
Alsace through french and US troops in very severe winter. The very well done exhibition showed killing and destruction as usual in wars - see Syria even today!
Just see some Plymouth shots:






 Well, I did not yet know that my red Peugeot 504 would not run after
our return to Düsseldorf. So I could enjoy this blue one in Riquewhir:


I was so frustrated when I came back as it would not start, see my post:,3634.0.html
The Plymouth, as always, performed perfectly!
Fine wife, fine car, fine vine, fine weather, finec ountry- this is near Paradise!!

Any source for a set of separate beauty rings plus dog dishes for
original wheels??
I too have the rotating problem, but the stem covers hold on until now!

fine solution!

I have bernbaum´s parts here for rebuilding.
But they could not get out the trunnion!
So, I´m letting the good performing shaft as it is until getting any trouble.
Than, Your choice seems logical!

My vibration problem is finally solved. 
I purchased a new drive shaft complete with modern u-joints from Joe McGinnis (Callison Enterprises 706 781 2805) after reading another post from a fellow with a 39 Plymouth.  Joe had me measure the shaft from the center of the welds at either end and made the shaft for me. It took about 2 weeks. Joe was very nice to deal wit but more importantly the vibration that was driving me nuts is gone.

A tread was recently started on the POC Facebook forum about a 38 Plym conv cpe that the owner is looking for parts to restore the car. He really has his work cut out for him.. The body on the '38 is in far worst shape than mine was.. Wm.
