Apple has available for download both System 6.0.8 and System 7.5.5.

System 6.0.8 is what I would personally recommed for that system, but it
will run up to the 7.5.5 (to do 7.5.5 make sure you have installed the
full 4 MB of RAM).

Now, getting it TO the Mac Plus, that can be a bit more of a challenge.
The Mac Plus has a single 800K drive. So you will need to download the
disk images from Apple's web site, and then make 800K disks from them. I
don't off hand recall if the 6.0.8 images are 800K or 1.44K images, but I
know the System 7.5 images are 1.44K.
