No one specializes in the 53-54 C-K cars. It would be a very limited inventory at best - that is if you counted the parts that were PECULIAR to the C-Ks. Most mechanical stuff was shared with the sedans. SOME trim was shared, but the sheet metal was unique to C-Ks vs. Sedans/wagons.

There's a good list of verndors on Stude dot com.:D

thanks guys, that helps.
Yes, I'm finding the C/K stuff is scarce.
A buddy has a complete 55 commander (4dr) parts car that I can snag some parts from; radiator, v8 springs, door handles, engine/trans/rear end, but that's all I can think of. Even the steering box/column is different?

Radiator's different. You MIGHT could use the tanks for a recore.[:I]

really? I was figuring 53-55 would have used the same radiators for sedan and C-K since they both had low noses (and later radiators interchanged)
