1955 Buick floor pans

Recommended Posts

My front floor pans are in rough shape, and it's time to do something about them.  I know there are several companies which make them.   Now the $64000 question....who makes the best fitting, most accurate ones?   thanks, Earl

106 views and no replies. It's amazing that no one with a '55 has had to replace their floor pans. I guess I got the only one with floor pans that rusted out.....

Most folks likely used pans from a donor car, I've seen some repro pans  and was not impressed with fit or quality. I would say if you are expecting repro  pans that will look and fit as original you will be disappointed..............Bob

The best way to good floor pans is an intact running/driving car :D

Yeah the pans that are out there are very crudely made compared to the factory stampings.  They work with some beating and trimming....but nothing short of that.

He is working on a Roady, Greg.

That's a pretty good looking Century. Lots of life in that one.
