This sounds like a good alternative, especially if they are a bolt-in replacement.

that is false the originals were aluminum just like the repops , however it probably was a better grade aluminum.
COULD BE BUT I THOUGHT MY VERY BUILD HAD STAINLESS. AS YOU SAID MOST LIKELY A HIGHER GRADE ALUMINUM

Unfortunately, this is about the best picture that I could find at the moment. They do look very nice and in my opinion are far superior to the original little skinny 55-57 factory pieces.

Eddie Motor Sports has some real nice billit sill plate. They are pricey.

The Fischer ones are definitely like original. But they're very thin and can easily twist and bend. Still good looking sill plates. Madmooks has a set of billet polished ones. There're very nice. Certainly worth the money. Those would be my preferred option.

Unhappy

As I recall the originals were not that great either. I remember them deteriorating from road salt around the screw holes just like steel. Cheap thin aluminum. Not just 50's cars either. I think 60's and 70's may have been the same until they went to plastic.

These are my originals, very deteriorated as stated by Tim. The were replaced, but if you have non-retractable seat belts, carefully place them om the floor.
