Hi, not sure if the cowl bolts you mentioned are the ones that you access from inside the cab in the kick panel area. My 56 ford, has 3 of these bolts on each side. Also, did you unbolt the inner fenders? I believe they have separate bolts to the cowl as well as to the fender....good luck, let us know if you get it off...

2 bolts on the bottom of the fender, under the hinge pockets
and 2 bolts that hold your inner fender to the firewall
