I would agree with the three posts above. Without an interior or VIN number, it's tough to be sure.

In the mid-late 50's there were a lot of custom orders from the factories - they were not super consistent back then when they were more handmade. By the mid-60's, the layouts & documentation became more standardized. I do believe the teardrop shaped wheel well is a late 1957-58 thing though and the end cap style is also. 1956
& before had the 13-panel endcaps.
The one real oddity is the vent & rain gutter on the back end cap - I've never
seen that before. Either it's been "customized" somewhere along the way by a previous owner or it could be a 1958/59 'Custom' model. However, I suspect it is not
factory installed by how crooked it is. The "Custom" models were usually made with more care. Also the odd window configuration indicates that the larger ones on the sides were most likely installed later. They don't have the vertical bracing that is typical of the late 50's windows as seen in the smaller windows.
Regardless, this one looks to be a "BIG project". Good luck!
