I am looking for the following for a '57 Desoto convertible. Left and right wind vent assemblies. Left and right rear quarter power window regulators and motors. The five chrome strips on the deck lid for an Adventures. Any leads appreciated.

I don't think the vent assemblies are convertible specific? If they are not I have them.

I believe the convertible top vent frames are the same as '58 hardtop correct?

From what I have found, All of the '57 convertibles used the same vent frame except Imperials. The '57 hardtops were specific to hardtops. The '58 Hardtops (including 4dr hardtops ) were common to all except Imperials. The '58 convertibles show a common but different number than the hardtops. I have been told the only difference between the convertible and hardtop frames is cosmetic, that the castings are just slightly different enough to make them a different part number. Everything hardtop in '58 and '59 should also work on a '57 or '58 convertible. For my purposes, I would be very happy with a nice pair of frames to put on the car. My car won't be a 100 point car, just a nice driver.
