As I try to locate parts, books do not always tell the story. Even pictures of other cars leave me confused. Here is a picture of a set of armrests someone has. Are they correct for the 51 State Commander coupe?

They look like just the Rubber covers for the Arm Rests used in "C" Cab '49 to '64 Trucks as well as lower trim level '47-'52 Cars.
They require a Base if it is not there.

I'm not familure with a 51 State Commander Coupe. What exactly is that?

My 1950 Champions and Commanders use exactly what you pictured, and in fact I am looking for a pair to replace the black ones in my 50 Champion. My 1950 Land Cruiser has the same shape, but they are fabric covered.

It is a C5 Commander State (Starlight) Coupe
TWChamp: Does Commander State sound more correct? :D

It is the Top of the Commander Line, trim level 5 "State", not used on Champions.

Champion:

1 = Custom
3 = Deluxe
5 = Regal

Commander:

3 = Regal
5 = State

The Armrests would be Upholstered.

Those are what were in my 1950 Commander C5 Starlight. The covers are being reproduced by our parts vendors.

The covers are being reproduced by our parts vendors.Do you mean the vinyl and cloth covers that stretch over these rubber bases, or the rubber bases themselves? These door armrests were used in many models of cars and truck over the years, changed only by the trim level.
