Help With Finding Tool Bits For Bolts On A 1948 Truck!

I have looked everywhere, Home Depot, automotive shops and no one has them. I have some bolts for window trim and rubber molding on my 1948 Chevy Panel Truck that has funny looking rectangle security bolts and I need to remove them rather than drill them out due to some areas will not be able to retap.

Is there a company that makes and sells these special tools for these type of bolts?

Are you talking about a clutch head screw? Looks kinda like a bowtie? Sears has screwdrivers with this type tip

You GOT IT! I looked at Sears as well, but I will look again. I need the bits more than I need the screw driver. Hense, I am removing rusted bolts that have been there since 1947 that has never been removed.

Of course I am spraying lubricant on the threads on some of them that I can get to, but there are other places that I can't lube the threads. I was using and square bit and got some of the out but it took some twisting like crazy to free them. Then I went with the cordless drill.

I purchased the 3 sizes I needed from my Snap On man. I don't remember what the cost was which about 8 years ago. The larger size is a 3/8" drive and the other 2 are 1/4" drive.
