Welcome to the forum ,I just done a 1955 and the windows should be the same and i got a kit from brothers,It was a little short on instructions but figured it out,doesn't say anything about rails and the front one i used the 1/4 window one cut down and in the rear the window just feel out when opened so i put in a peice of shelf bracket that worked perfect for the weatherstrip to fit in.I changed the frame on this one to fit a 2006 GTO drive train,so not sure what fits best,someone else on here should be able to help with that part!The frame that come with this one had a 67 chevelle front clip and a narrowed 9" ford rear with discs it is avalable.
