    looks like the only 55 specific item i have is a trunk emblem overlay that surrounds the lock assy., it does not have the lock in it, it is in very nice replateable shape with some pitting, but no edge deterioration , would be great for an original patina look, not the shiniest surface chrome, but still would polish nicely, would sell for $60, that includes the shipping, doug 740-285-2298

    That sounds like a good deal. I will let you know when I check with the money manager (wife, lol) and have permission to order.

    Weatherstripping

    I have sourced repro front and rear glass rubber seals, and have been told the repro International truck seals work on the doors, but does anyone know what works for the hardtop side glass seals? I still need the one in the roof channel, wing window seals, and the vertical quarter window seals. I also need a trunk seal.

    I got catalogs and free samples from Steele & Sof-Seal for 2DR doors and trunk, nothing close but didn't look close at universal profiles. Restoration Specialties said they used to have it but were out. Ended up buying those off mercodolivre for the '60 model Aero, same as '55 here. I think it was Steele that had the hood to cowl rubber. Hardtop upper door rubber seems to be a problem for the Eagle/Bermuda guys.

    Very nice car! I wish I had found mine with all the parts for a restoration. Unfortunately the trim pieces are almost impossible to find, and super expensive when you do!

    Well it looks like the direction of the build has been chosen by signs from the universe! I have purchased a '94 GMC Sonoma 10 bolt rear end for $30, and a complete straight axle front end from a 40's Chevy pickup for $100. I checked the tape measure on both, and it looks like they will be a good fit. The cost of the build just went way down as well!
