need some 55-59 chevy truck doors

Iam looking for both driver & passenger doors. I would like for them to be in pretty good shape. Any suggestions on where I can find some? I looked in to new skins but seems like alot of work for the money. Any comments or suggestions??

They do repro those now, may be worth the $ in time savings and repairing some decent used doors... I am kinda thinking I would have been better off waiting a while and going that direction but they weren't available at the time... You may be able to find a better price than this place...

Repro Doors

We are currently restoring a 55 NAPCO in our shop and we bought the repro doors from Dynacorn, which to my knowledge is who makes them all. Even though you can get them from different suppliers they most likely all come from the same place. Anyway they don't fit worth a darn. It will take some pretty good metalwork skills to get these doors fitting the cab for a A1 job. Also their tooling they stamp these doors is so poor the body lines are wavy and otherwise repulsive.

Agreed, the new doors we put on the Cameo we are working on are a poor fit. Door jamb needed to be widened.
