     With the purchase of my UTEs I am in the need of many parts.
many of the parts used are based off of the American production 1954 Plymouth 4-door sedan. some of the major differences are Girling brake master cylinders and Lucas electrical parts (12-volt positive ground system). If you are in Australia and have a 1954-57 vintage Desoto Diplomat or Plymouth that you are parting out I would love to hear from you!
