The good news is yes there is one, the bad news is I don't remember who makes it.

I believe the one I have is from MRM..
bought it at Auto Motif about 7-8 yrs ago.
It is a complete cab conversion.

If you sub the bed sides (only)from The AMT 55/57
stepside kits you can build an early '55 of course
use open drive.shaft not the torque tube from the '50 kit

Dragcity version is very nice. Wasn't resinrealm.net stocking those too? Takes more than a grille swap, the windshield is different too

i believe your right. what was cool is that i took off the front grille to get it chromed and i used the sewing thread and it only took bout 10 to 15 min. :angry: the resin was ez to work with and very clean :blink:

I built mine years ago, but I forgot who made it and where I got it from. You guys are correct, the 54 is the first year of the solid windshield. The dash is different as well, but the correct dash came with the kit. Another change is the door handles. 54 had push button handles, not the twist type. Another major difference is the bed rails are flat, not angled. I used the bed sides from the AMT 55 stepside truck.
