What do they look like?  Any casting numbers on them?....Can you bring to a good auto parts house and have them .atch something up?

This is what I did for my LaSalle.

I would be removing them, and if they are slightly pitted, hone them out, and install oversize rubbers.

If they are really pitted, and not available, I would be sleeving them with Stainless Steel Sleeves of the correct size, and installing new rubbers.

Usually if you know the bore size and line inlet thread you can find wheel cylinders, they didn't tend to be that unique.   Big cars were often in the 3/4-7/8 range.   I suppose the commercial chassis could have been 1 or maybe even 1 1/8"?

I did a quick search of Napa's inventory and these came back.

1" bore 1959 Fleetwood series 75

These are for the rear wheels and they look like they carry the front wheel rebuild kits.
