Search:  In line sight glass 3/8 flare.  That's what I use on my 55's.  Anything original will be by now junk.  The originals have a glass tube sealed by o-rings which at this point are welded to the glass.  Even a new one I found a few years ago failed in a week.

no flare on the one being replaced.

 This is the one on my car, also a '56 Roadmaster 2 door, factory air. This has never been apart as long I have owned the car, and that's over 40 years now. Also, there is supposed to be a small metal cover that goes over it, light springy steel, but it broke many years ago.
