1957 Olds Super 88

I am looking for a company that makes replacement body panels and other parts for a 57 olds super88. I really need floor pans, rockers, and a fuel tank but any other parts might be helpful to. If you know of a company please let me know thanks!

Floor pans and body panels will probably have to be hand made. You could get fuel tank from another more common car like a camaro or a cutlass or something to fit if you can't find the exact one you need.

Many gm parts are interchangeable. Try to find out what other models looked similar or were on the same platform and you can probably make it fit.

With few exceptions (roof and floor pans, for example) exterior body panels for GM cars from the 1950s and 60s are almost never interchangeable between brands. Most don't even interchange between years. Good used panels are probably your only option.
