Real Deal Steel Introduces Updated 1955-57 Chevy Bodies

New from Real Deal Steel – the updated steel 1955-1957 Chevy bodies are now even more like the originals with the addition of rubber seals between the rear wheelhouse and quarter panel. See more details below.

Official Release:

Real Deal Steel’s all-new steel 1955-1957 Chevy bodies are now even more like the originals that flowed from the factory more than 60 years ago with the addition to rubber seals between the rear wheelhouse and quarter panel.

The small, but important, improvement is part of the company’s constant focus on improving the quality and attention to detail during the assembly of the popular body styles.

The seals are also sold separately.

Real Deal Steel produces all-steel reproduction bodies for American Classics from the Forties, Fifties and Sixties: 1940 Ford five-window coupes, 1955-1957 Chevys, 1967-1969 Camaros and Firebirds and 1966-1967 Chevy II Nova two-door hardtops. Ford bodies are licensed by Ford Motor Company and Chevrolet bodies are licensed by GM.

The bodies are assembled in Sanford, FL, from high quality steel structural components to exact factory specifications on Real Deal Steel’s proprietary assembly fixtures that guarantee exact factory-spec fit every time.

All structural and skin assembly utilizes water-cooled 220V resistance spot welders – the same technology used in much-larger automotive assembly plants. Real Deal Steel generally uses 25 percent more spot welds than original to give the bodies added strength.

In addition to factory-original bodies, Real Deal Steel also offers modification options such as customized firewalls and mini-tub wheel housings, in addition to a wide selection of individual steel panels and replacement parts for American classics.

Features:

  • Even more like the OEM body
  • Adds rubber seals between the rear wheelhouse and quarter panel
  • Made in the USA
