Anyone know of an axle that will fit a 55-64 rear end with a 6 on 5.5 bolt pattern.

Your reference to a 55-64 axle is not relevant. 55 and 56 axles are totally different fro 57-64 axles.The bearing on a 55-56 axle is closer to the axle flange than 57 and later, and the bearing is smaller. 57 has a 7/8 inch wide bearing so it's slightly different from the 58-64 axles. The only way to get a 6 lug axle is to have a heavy duty axle from a Black Widow of an ambulance or airport limo. I know this because I have one.

Tom Ordway If you don't drive it, why have it?
