Aren't they roller bearing from the factory? They're not ball bearing are they?

Not an expert but wouldn't think that they used ball bearings on front wheels.

The original bearings are BALL bearings. If you want to keep the drum brakes buy a pair of 61-68 Impala/Belair front hubs. These have TAPER ROLLER bearings. Get a new set of bearings and seals and reassemble like original. EXCEPT - roller bearings are adjusted a little differently. Check a '61 up service manual. Alternately you can buy a new set of aluminum hubs at considerable more expense.

You do not have to buy anything to have roller bearings, except the bearings, and races.
Check --fillingstation.com

The box mine came in said they fit 40-59 Chevrolet cars and trucks, and 38-60 GMC trucks-54-62 Corvette someone should be able to cross reference them, to be sure.
Or go to classic performance parts for $90 for all of them with free seals

I'm growing tired. The delete button is next then I guess I have to be thrust back a decade and need the ban button.

I just can't believe the way people are not responding to my requests.

That was my final warning to anyone who wants to name call or bully someone on this site.
