Default Re: 1955 ford Ranch Wagon door latch.

Having a checkered history, my bird has what appears to be a 56 right rear quarter (brazed on 1/4” low at the tail light). The jamb is deeper, and there is a home made spacer to bring the striker plate on the jamb out to mesh with the star wheel on the door. Given that, I suspect they won’t interchange 55 to 56.

At one point I know my car was owned by a drug dealer, and it appears a lot of repairs on the car were done in trade with his customers. While they were using his products.
