For those who wish to convert their front ball wheel bearings to tapered roller bearings, the source I have used for MANY years is Allied Bearing in Los Angeles. c...
They ONLY fit 49-54 pass cars and 53-62 Corvettes. Some of the aftermarket Chevy and Corvette vendors sell them, but at a higher price than Allied (Allied MAY be the importer). These roller bearings for early Chevys and Vettes are NOT available through retular auto parts sources/stores such as NAPA, O'Reilly, etc.

Here is what the inner and outer roller bearings look like.
