According to my Hollander exchange only drums that will work are 57-58 OLDS.

I suggest EBAY.

I would go to a 9 inch Ford to eliminate future problems like this.

I have a tech article on installing finned Buick aluminum brake drums on early Olds axles. i did it on my '56 rear end and it works super. Need to find two drums and two early Buick backing plates (ebay and Hemmings) but when you are done you have a period piece that WORKS and you didn't have to give into the Ford 9" siren. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you a scan of hte article.

No, I think it came out af a Hot Rod mag in the 60s, back when tech articles occasionally had something worthwhile to say.

Is that your car in the avatar? Awsome!!
