I was looking on line last night for a link to people who might of repaired origInal rusted cowl bands and came across a steel repro for $50.00 +$20.00 shipping. I order it, manufactured by Ahooga in Ohio. We will see how it fits when I receive it . I have been told by people that bought SS repro,s that they don't fit well. I GOING TO FIND OUT.

The A and AA commercial vehicles used body color, steel cowl bands except for the 270-A through 300-A body types.
