Are you looking for the collectible promo or do you want to build a project?  If so, R&R does a 4 door 49 or 50 close to that.

Like Tom says, R&R Resin has one and the '50 is a bit down the page. I'm assuming it's now a collectible you want as a collectible but this may have been taken from one. 

 

I had a '51 Plymouth as my first car and bought this to turn into one. It hasn't really advanced much but I put some larger images in the wip I started here.

Your best bet then is find a resin kit , IF ( key word ) you find a promo if avail and it's not warped you WILL pay thru the nose for it .

Unwarped cars of the acetate era demand big money compared to the usually warped commen cars. AFAIK , all promos from about 1963 and earlier were acetate . and 99%  of the times they warped.

The biggest issue I've seen on the R & R Plymouth was fitting the front end up to the body. The last car I Fully restored just happened to have been a 1950 Plymouth 2dr sedan back in 1995. I mean to tell ya, finding parts was impossible . I wound up making the interior / engine sheet metal using what was left of the original pieces , photographs and a good amount of torch work. The Plymouth WILL nearly be as troublesome too. I go by the real car all the time .............

The R&R 50 Plymouth does have the parts to make a full car .. body, front and read bumpers/lights, interior with dash and undercarriage. You will need at a minimum wheels and to make windows. This photo shows all your get ...
