Your odds of finding a rust free one are about the same as winning the Mega-Millions; and will probably cost almost as much.

If you are going to work anywhere under or behind the dash make sure you disconnect one of the battery cables. It doesn't matter which one.

They're the headlight bezels. They fit 1960. 1958/9 only used one mounting screw. They're pretty common so not worth a whole lot.

There are no fuses. If the temp gauge doesn't work it's either the gauge, the sender or the wiring. If the fuel gauge works then the CVR is probably ok. It controls both units.

Each door and quarter window has a channel/guide where the roller goes into. They are most likely extras.
