    57 is the same basic body, so I would think it should fit.

    If you can't find the glass, you can form sheetmetal and make it a sedan delivery. That way you can get it on the road. Then you can tell people that it is a even more rare version of the Ranch Wagon.

    Have you called some of those big antique junk yards in Idaho and Arizona?

  5. '57/58 are identical, so either year will work. The side glass is all flat laminated, you can have that cut to size. You'll also need the latches for the slider (IIRC, '55/56 will also work), the channels for the slider, the U-shaped seal for the stationary windows, and the seal between the two pieces. I believe the channels and stationary seal are being reproduced.

    Dennis Carpenter or MACs will have all of the rubber you need. As stated earlier, 57/58 side glass is the same.
