For those of us who aren't '55 experts, in what body styles was a President available?

Years ago, I owned two 1955s, a C and a K (Speedster) and do not consider myself to be an "expert" on them.
By body styles, I would say four door sedan, coupe and hardtop. Then in the sedans you could say that the early ones were a different body than the Ultra Vistas. Of course, there are also trim differences, like Deluxe and State sedans and State and Speedster hardtops.

Awsome! My first car was a 1955 Commander. My dad had bought it before I was old enough to drive and did a fantastic job of resto-moding it. When it finally came to me it was a little screamer that was loads of fun.
Have fun with yours. Will look for pictures.

Good to hear about another '55 owner. I was driving mine today, it is certainly a nice riding car even though as has been pointed out to me "many" times it is the less desirable 4 door sedan.

One body style that didn't have a President was the Conestoga wagon. although I have a T-shirt with a President Conestoga on it.
