I am currently restoring my '64 Parisienne Custom Sport. I've had for a long time and drove the crap out of it when I was younger. Now it is time to make it new again. Or as much as I can.
I am in need of a hood, so my body guy tells me, as the fold over in the front is too rusted for him to fix.
I am in Victoria, BC.
Also, I'm looking for some other odds and ends, such as a set of taillights and a back bumper. But the hood is the important one right now.
For all the new stuff (interior, etc), I've been dealing with RPM in Saskatoon and Antique Chevrolet in Dundas. So far, so good as far as that goes. Anyone else you guys may know about who knows everything there is to know on the Parisiennes?
I've got all the numbers from it and they are all matching. How do I get on the registry?
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! I will post some pictures soon.
HOW ABOUT THE TIN MAN ?? NOT FAR FROM YOU !
Welcome do try Tin Man in B.C. He "might have a hood "
Considering the value of a rust free hood and possible travel time "perhaps" you should consider buying a project and strip it at sellers or tow it home
some parts are becoming un-obtainium
Welcome! Let's see some pictures of your car. I've got a nice hood, but I'm all the way over on the right coast.

You might give KMS in Coquitlam a call and see if they have a hood for you. I know that they have a number of old stuff there. I made a number of great scores there. Their phone number is 604 522 5599. Good luck.
