You didn't mention it/them, but TIRES!!! You'll need to reskin it before going out of the neighborhood. Man, I ran some crap way back when. Never again!!!
TIRES! I don't need no stinking tires! Put on the car circa 1990 so if they lasted this long they must be ok. OK, MAYBE I need new sneakers. I found some Diamond back wide whitewall radials in 225/75R15 for $1108. This seems to be the best deal going unless someone has a better idea

Thank you for the detailed description of the pinion seal replacement. Where I ran into trouble was after removing the large U-shaped clips, the bearing caps would not budge without applying some force to push them put of the joint. I guess people use a ball-joint puller for that, I was using a C-Clamp with a large socket to push on the opposite side of the joint. That was working but the force required was at the outer limits of the C-Clamp, finally I thought better of it and just pushed everything back and put the clips back on.

I was having trouble similar to this thread:

Rear U-Joint disassembly

As far as tires, I have been very happy with Hankook H724 thin whitewalls, which will set you back maybe $500 for a set of 4, assuming you can still get them, I purchased some last year without any trouble.

I got some THIN whitewalls in the modern size for $100/tire at Walmart (order online).

Any proper whitewalls will be like $300/tire as you have found.

'55 400. Needs aesthetic parts put back on, and electrical system sorted.
'55 Clipper Deluxe. Engine is stuck-ish.
