I can see the conversion possibilities from the post 1955 GMC 100 pick up, but is a resin conversion out there?

RMR and Frontier sell the generation before the one Chucky is looking for- he's after a '55-59 stub nose conventional.

This one would at least give you a heavier chassis and wheels, but you'd still need to shorten and widen the nose and rework the grille like you would with the AMT '55.
