1951 220b Tune-Up Parts Availability

I am trying to help out an elderly neighbor who purchased her
1951 220b Sedan Brand New (she's in her 80's).

I need the following Tune-Up Parts:

Points, Condenser, Rotor, Cap, Wire Set, & Valve Cover Gasket.

So far, I have had Zero luck in locating these parts through
traditional channels. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the replies ... I will store these sources in my records,
as I have just found the needed parts on the East Coast.

A bit late here, but doesn't this car have the standard M180? Parts like you mentioned should be the same as the 219s, 220s, used all the way through to the 60s. Shouldn't be too difficult to source.

A M180 engine has most of the electrical parts common to it ,a Pertronix ignitor will get rid of the points and condenser and give good starting and idling!

Sounds like Beezy's car? If so, tell her I said Hi and we hope to see her and her car at the Valley of Fire Show 8 Nov.
