Is there any chance someone out there might have access to or can get close up photos of rollers for 1954-1956 S&S hearses with something in the photo for size reference?

How about a couple shots of the nice original '56 S&S landau combination hearse/service car that was @ auction in PA about 1 1/2 years ago until someone else can provide exactly what you're asking?

Were the rollers for a combination coach different than for a non combination? I found some photos of another '56 but not a combination and the bezels around the rollers are different.

3-way, endloader, or combination that had flip panels- same rollers; only floor configurations changed.

Superior used their own 'exclusive' flip rollers in combinations. I'm not well versed enough with other makes to know which (or when) other coach builders may have additionally used their own flip rollers.

the S&S had flip over panels

I'm assuming since the slots in the floor are not that wide that they were not flip rollers.

S&S offered fixed rollers, flip panels, flip rollers, or skeleton rack in their combos, since at least 1950, so anything is possible.
