Doesn't the 55 come with an uptop?  Should fit or come close for the tri-fives
I'M WORKING WITH A VERT 56 BEL AIR 1/18 DIE CAST. IT HAD THE TOP DOWN WITH THE COVER, SO I HAVE TO CUSTOM MAKE ONE.

Oh, well diecast and 1:18 are totally different than what most of us here do, we mess with 1:25 and plastic. Look around for any other diecast GM in those years, the tops would be similar

THEY DON'T COME WITH TOPS THAT ARE UP, BUT ALWAYS DOWN. SO I'M MAKING ONE OUT OF CANVAS WITH THE TOP FRAME AND PLASTIC WINDOW.
