I have just purchased a 1954 Pontiac Chieftain ( I think Canadian) and I need some knowing advice on some parts that is required for now. The car is a 2-door hardtop. Parts required are a trunk lid, a driver door and a back window glass. I know of a 1953 American Chieftain that is available for parts. The help needed is will the parts on the 1953 fit on the 1954.

Not if your car is a 2 door hardtop. Sedans and hardtops do not share the same glass.

We need to know if it is a Canadian or US.
The rear glass is the same as a Chevy hardtop 53-54, or US 53-54 hardtop. The door too. The trunk lid vary between model and years.
A 54 chevy 210 4 doors doesn't have the same rear glass as the hardtop, not to mention the front one doesn't fit too.
