I received a call from new NDC member Donovan Roberts from Ontario, Canada. He recently purchased a really sharp '55 Fireflite hardtop (photo attached). According to Donovan, he took the car to a shop to have the car safety inspected for registration purposes and the concepts of a tapered axle shaft and LH lug bolt threads were unknown to the clowns working on his car. They warped the drum trying to remove it and stripped the threads in the hub.

My parts book says the front and rear drums are the same item, with the front and rear hubs being different. The hubs are riveted to the drums, so theoretically a used front or rear drum will work. Please let me know if you have a spare drum and rear hub for a '55 non-wagon. I'll be passing any leads to Mr. Roberts.
