by the looks of the sides,,,the height is a real problem,,,bridges are only 14ft  that would be just over the heigth of the cab,,,box is way too tall,,,,,,been working for Navistar Int. for 40 yrs,,,,seen salesmen take stacks off on low bridges,,,,hate too lose the whole roof of that trailer,,,,,,

the 46-48 Pontiacs are my favorites,,,,,,some new grilles and different trim pieces would work on the Galaxy chevies,,,,,some older Pontiacs also would be nice,,,,,,,I have  a 46 Pontiac torpedo street rod,,,,thats why im picky,,,,thanks, Doug

hello,,first time on here,,the fast back body styles are all close to the same,minor changes between Buick,Olds,Pontiac,,,,,BUT,,,the trim changes from year to year,,and the grilles are different from year to year,,,,,I own  1946 Pontiac Torpedo back street rod,,,very rare,,first year after the war,,wish someone would do grille options for the Galaxy kit,,I have a couple to do,,so those Chevies would be Pontiacs,,,,,,thanks for your time,,,,,,Doug
