find the "Jim osborn" 1957 body trim assembly manual. (green cover) page 12-13 for the top install.and FORD SPORTS CAR (BROWN COVER) Trim sealer manual, page 7-3142. ford engineering book.
should have already look at these before you started, now its a little late,


The Prestige top that I had on my 56 used the stock swing arm. It did require Prestige's hardware to connect their top to the stock swing arm. Contacting Prestige is probably the best solution.
