I am pretty sure the cast bell will bolt to an LA.  But to be sure, I'll ask Sproketbuster.

As the resident Fin-Master here (current owner of a '58 DeSoto 4 dr
hardtop and former owner of a '57 300C vert, '58 NY'er vert and 58
Dodge Royal sedan) - we say - Great Car!!!!  That engine looks
amazingly original and clean (under the dirt!): look at the paint on
the air cleaner and valve covers!! Nice find!!!

That is one sweet wagon!
I would nurse the engine back to life being such a nice car.
They are original only once.
 
I spent two weeks breathing life back into my engine that had not run since 1974.Runs fine.
Steve had a motor that sat for almost twenty years,I helped him install it,along with Potato,and we got it running.

Spin in a new set of plugs and throw a set of points at it and see what happens!  That Plymouth is AWESOME!

Thanks for all your help; I'll keep you all informed about my progress.  First order of business is to clean it and see if I can get it to run.  There's no key so I'll have to hotwire it - hope I still remember how.  Which side of the coil do I run the wire to the battery before I bridge the solenoid?

Positive.
 
But I suggest yo go to the high side of the ballast resistor.  The coils were intended for 9 volts.

Which is the high side?  That's that white ceramic thing on the firewall right?  At least it was on a 75 Aspen I once owned years ago.  You're saying connect a wire from the battery to the high side of the ballast resistor then bridge the solenoid with plier handles and the engine (if free) should commence spinning?

Also if I was to get a set of points for it - are the ones available new from the friendly neighborhood auto parts store OK or are they cheap Chinese junk?  Should I be looking for NOS?

Also I see there's a Simca next to my online name - I learned to drive stick on a 1963 Simca; I remember my Dad old womaning about it saying it must have had a graphite clutch as they wore out so fast.  2 kids learned to drive in that car - THAT's why the clutch wore out.
