    Nice truck, and a rare one, too.

    I don't think anyone has reproduced the the 653428 weatherseals. They were only used on 54-56 trucks, which were not high-production years. The economics don't favor it. I have a couple of NOS ones, but they are foam rubber and crumbly with age.

    AFAIK, no one has reproduced any truck floor mats except for the most common one for trucks with column shift. Several people have tried to come up with a universal one for the bigger trucks, but the costs were always prohibitive for the expected market.

    SI has the 1523x31 screws for the headlight rims and the 1161x24 arm rest screws. Vern Ediger on the Stude Truck Talk forum can probably provide used arm rest bases. SI has the pads.

    Compared to the forum, not very many people look at these blogs. You might have more luck posting on the general forum.

    Thanks Skip. That truck had no title and no VIN ID Plate. Anyway to look up the production sheet through other means? We may have chatted about this before. I did get a new VIN ID# through Indiana and have it registered and titled.

    Assuming it still has the original engine, only way I know of would be to pay the Stude Museum to have one of their interns go through all E-series truck production orders until they find your engine number. Might only have to pay for a couple of hours labor -- how long does it take to riffle through 12,000 pieces of paper?
