I have noticed several postings of your pleas for help.  Just what is it that you are looking for?  Do you want us to build the interiors for you or to supply you with the interiors for your '55 Panel and Suburban?  Please understand that I do not build on commission nor do I have any parts for a '55 Chevy Panel or Suburban.

You may want to double your offer. Even at that amount, I don't know if you will get any takers. It's a lot of work to scratch build an interior. When you figure in the time, materials and shipping, the builder isn't going to make much even at $50 each. 

Then you have the matter of sending your chassis, body and interior tub to someone you don't know. They'll have to have those to build the interior. Can you trust that they will send those back once done IF they do the work? IF you do get them back, what kind of quality will it be? I don't think you've thought this through.

My suggestion is get some thin styrene and try to do it yourself. Start out with the floor which is a simple piece. Wheel tubs can be made from pill bottoms cut in half. Once you get those, move on to the side pieces if you want to add those.

How thick is the styrene need to be?

Personally I find .030", .020", and .010" to be the most useful thickness for styrene sheets. .020" is probably the thickness I would choose to start building an interior tub.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

you could use the interior of revells 1966 suburban and cut it down to line upwith the existing tub wall that came with amts 1955 pick up truck that way you would have the right thickness of plastic
