  • Glove box re-install question for 55

    55 Champion sedan,


    I am trying to install a glove box into th dash of a 55 champion sedan. The box is straight but the dash has curves, doesn't seem to match except the two bottom holes were the push clips go in.
    Will some one inlighten me as to what the problem is?

    I had the same problem with a "repro" glovebox for my '55 coupe. It just would not fit, period. I bought another repro off ebay and it was much better. I think the one I used came from either SI or SASCO, it was carboard with black flocking. The one that worked was colored leather-pattern stuff with sewn binding, like the original.

    Also keep in mind that there were two different dashes used in sedans in '55; early ones with the "flat" (actually slightly curved) windshield used the same dash as C-Ks; the later "Ultra-Vista" (wraparound windshield) cars used a different dash panel, and I would ASSume a different glovebox liner as well, although I'm not near my reference material so I cannot confirm that.

      Yes, actually the parts book shows three different ones for 55 sedans as far as I can dertermine. One for the flat windshield version and two for curved windshield versions. I am taking this apart and making one from scratch.
