fleet wood will normally get it done. the shop manual is vary helpful in doing a number of mechanic issues. your kind of on your own from the cowl back. they did so many different things that it's true that no two cars are alike.but there construction methods were constant. that at least helps. when shopping down to the local parts store ask for the Commercial chassis parts or limo parts. with all them people ambulance does not compute. little thing like the patch in the floor just make your self save you a lot of money and time. nothing like paying out the nose for a floor patch kit to cut it up and throw away 3/4 of it. fender skirts are standard fleet wood. trim is anyone's guess but most did not have the rock guards on them. body moldings were MM or made for MM nothing in the gm line will be long enough. there a lot of experimenting to see what will work. but they did use standard off the shelf stuff. of course most of that has not been made now for some 20 years.
