you might be able to still get them from the guy in Georgia, he was in CT.

He builds pretty good thick ones.  I got mine on closeout for like 400$  Maybe talk the Big M (John to see if he was any originals, im now hoard them :), I should not have sold one of my two sets)...

He is retired in GA though, i doubt his phone works?  (860)513-1118  also try   Phone: (860) 829-2076 or (860) 655-6966

Bob, he used to run Rcar fabrications.  Not sure if he sold his molds..

I got the floor for my '57 Dodge wagon from Real Steel (Lowery). His product is good, but he is sloppy with production and very hard to communicate with. I bought 6 panels - some were too narrow, others too wide. I asked for the front left to not have the removable panel, but got it that way anyhow. On some he failed to include the necessary depression for the frame bolts. When I pointed that out he sent another set. They had the recesses stamped but this time lacked the back part of the seat rail depression. He also can supply the 90 degree bracket that fits on top of the floor by the door post, but the spacing between the vertical part and the bolt hole was short by about 2". When I complained and provided the correct dimension, he sent another set that was off just as much only too long this time. When I pointed out that all he had to do was match the dimensions on his own replacement floor panel that piece fit on, he got mad and refused to talk to me. I ended up completely re-shaping his second set by hand. Also, the bolt hole depressions are too shallow - I had to buy a die online and re-press every one, using a wooden buck to prevent warpage. All that said, what alternatives do we have?

I also had an unpleasant experience with him. I would not recommend anything from Lowery.
