There's plenty of 1950s stuff out there. Cycle jumbles are a good way to start. You can't beat a good rummage, as they say...
If you're desperate, there's always fleabay.
And you can always build it up with whatever bits come to hand and then make it period correct when the right '50s parts appear. You can usually fit 700c wheels in place of 27in too.
Good luck with the build!
