No, they will not have any 55 covers.

Nope, mostly 59-64 stuff, some a bit earlier.

They might, however if SASCO doesn't, try Studebaker International. They list the front and rear wiring harnesses for the '55 President. If they have it, SASCO will likely be the better buy though.;) Gosh, I'm gonna miss them...:(

There is a lot of upholstery there. I don't know how anyone can say what's there and what isn't.

The only reason I can say that is that I've been searching upstairs at Standard Surplus/Newman Altman/SASCO since the 60's, and 55 soft trim disappeared about 20 years ago.

John,
I suppose you are right about that but they thought that about bucket seat covers until a set was unearthed in 2002.

True, if you are looking for 60's stuff, it could be buried there somewhere because it was not scrapped like the 50's stuff.

I don't know if I'm cheap enough, but I can do a nice full set in heat sealed vinyl for $250, or $350 for machine stitched.

Really cheap? Check the lint trap in mom's dryer and when you have enough you can just glue it over the existing fabric?
