When I worked in a wrecking yard, around 1979 or so, I cut one of those roofs off for a customizer from the bay area, he was going to use it on a 57 chevy. It was from a 57 Oldsmobile though. They are one cool looking roof, I'll look around some, probably tuff to find a good one w/o rust.

That roof is MUCH wider than the 53 Chevy so you would need to narrow it in the middle and make a new glass which is curved so it will complicate things a little.

'49'-'52 Styleline had the 3 peice glass.
But they didn't have the "wind splints" (?) going down the roof between them! That was one of the coolest looks ever. The thing is, the rest of the car had the same look, while a 49-54 Chevy didn't. JUST putting the roof on would be a mistake in my opinion. But with many other changes, that's different. But more mods woudl be needed to make it "work".
