I don't know what year you have, but I believe I used a 3/8" bolt for the top rear of the front fender to the cowl, while the lower mount was a 5/16" stud on the frame. The top of the fender bolts to the inner fender with 5/16" bolts, as well as the grill and upper pan bolts.

Zombiefied, if this is your '55, they are 5/16" x 3/4". From the factory they were fine thread (24), but the coarse thread (18) is good too.

You've gotta use the 5/16 UNF bolts on the cage nuts on the cowl. Same with any of the threaded nuts on the radiator support, J nuts on the grill etc. If you need nuts and bolts I.E. Inner fenders to fenders you can use 5/16 UNC. I just use UNF for all of them so I'm not tempted to use the wrong bolt in the wrong place.

I forgot about the threads in the radiator supports. Thanks for pointing that out.
