Who can help me with a spare rear left brake drum for a 1955 Fireflite (coupé).
I also need the bolts. (5)

Frans,

That photo appears to be a front brake drum. Please confirm you need the rear brake drum.

Frans,

Looks like these guys are parting a '55 sedan. You might check with them if they have a spare rear brake drum. The photos of the car shows the rear axle still on the car. If I come across others parting a '55 I'll update this post.

Frans,

The MoPar p/n for the rear drum is 1401953. According to the '55-'56 MoPar parts book this is the same p/n for the front drum. Although the drum is the same you would likely have to change the hub set in the drum. Again, according to the parts book this p/n is exclusive to the '55 DeSoto and is not used on any other '55-'56 car. I checked the '46-'54 parts book and I did not find this p/n used prior to '55.

This drum is used on all '55 DeSotos with the exception of station wagons, which used Imperial brakes.

Even though the parts book lists the hub and drum as being available separately, I would recommend buying a hub and drum assembly, which is part number 1401 951 for the left side. 55 Firedomes (except wagons) and Fireflites only.
