    Son of a gun, I've got (or actually, my wife's got ;) ) a '47 CC Rocket with the Chrysler Ace too.

    We've always been able to get most of the small stuff needed right at NAPA. You just need a knowledgeable guy who's willing to root around in the books for a while. But then we also live in an area with a lot of old boats (Thousand Islands NY) and my NAPA guy owns an old Century, so that helps. :D

    Still got the original "Rocket" decal on yours?
