I finally got my new replacement cab braces for my 59 from classic
fabrication.com
They measure 20" and 22" long. Sheet metal work and welds are excellent! Worth the $78 each side!

Those look real good. Are you getting the floor pans too?

I already got floor pans from a vendor off eBay. They look to be of decent quality but knowing how well these braces turned out, I would have ordered from classic too.

I recieved the same cab braces a few years ago. I had to re-make them as they don't fit really.

The pics are the ones I modified.

They don't fit??? Really! Huh...that stinks! Well, if I need to modify then I'll modify. Either way the bottom half of my truck needs work. Thanks for the heads up.

Repop parts almost always need a little massaging. Still better than trying to fab them for most of us.
