Are the armrests for a 55 210 sedan the same for the doors and the rear panels? I need a pair for my car, I want to make sure if I buy them on Ebay or some other site that I buy the right ones. I haven't seen any in person for a long time, by memory I thought they were the same.

Thanks

arm rest

no the rears are different they have corner ash trays built in to them on the front side pad to the back. the fronts are more like a horse shoe or u shape the backs are solid. don't think they make repo's for the two door sedan yet you will have to find originals.

If you are asking, if the fronts and rears are different....Then, yes they are.....The rears have ashtrays built in.

They repo the fronts and the ash trays for the 55/56 rear

You are right

Thanks for your replies. I was at a car show the other night and someone had an original 55 chevy the same model as mine and I was able to see what the rear armrests look like. With everyone putting in updated interiors you would think that there would be a few of these around for sale.

You can find them. Just be expecting to pat around 90.00 a pair for them in used condition, needing recovering. That is the price i have been seeing them at anyway.

and to think I was at a swap meet last week-end. I picked up two pair, looked at them (no cracks), asked the price, set them back down and walked off! 1 pair was $35. the other $40. :rolleyes:

Will you thought those were a steal. I stole a pair last summer at a swap meet. Picked them up looked good, acted disinterested and went to walk off. The guy said you need those. I asked how much and he said 5.00, couldn`t get the billfold out fast enough. I plan to use them on the 57.
