WANTED: NOS quarter panels for 1967 Parisienne 2 door hardtop


For a 427 4 speed project car. Coupe/hardtop type. 1968 panels could work with some modification. Any leads or info appreciated. Cash money for the right stuff! John. 

While Im at it- might as well mention Id like to find a good Strato bench seat for 1967 Parisienne. With headrests?? That would be even better! Oh yeah, and a 1965-67 BENCH SEAT style Muncie shift handle too. Heck- Im probably interested in any hard to find stuff! Proper 4 speed clutch fork anyone??

If anyone is interested in a 65-66 clutch pedal set with z bar and linkage minus the fork, I would break up my set and sell you the fork only John.

Get the fork out of here! Ill take you up on that Carl. You dont see those every day. You could also throw in the bench seat Muncie shift handle as packaging material. Just to keep the fork snug during shipping.

No, I probably couldn't do that! Not yet anyway.

I know of at least two more forks but they are in cars in wrecking yards. Huge project to get them. I won't be back there until spring likely but I will try to grab one for you then.

 Hi John

I see that you are still at it. Another piece of the puzzle.

 Yes, still at it Gary! Preparing for two eventual restorations. I must be nuts. It sure was great to see you last week. I'll be in touch.

One thing to watch for with these forks. The spring clip is often broken. I think they are reproduced and I know I've seen NOS clips show up on ebay from time to time. Sometimes the price is too much though, because of course they are "Corvette" clips...

I don't think I've heard of that being an issue.

Stock pressure plate, or do you have one of those that needs some extra leg effort to push the pedal in?

Sorry for derailing this Mondo, do you want me to move 65wagon's question to a new thread?

oh I did have a thought on the quarter panel question , ive never replaced full quarter unless it really needs it because of alignment issues, the factory did a fairly good job putting these things together and personally I don't want to deal with undoing all the spot welds and putting them back in, with good welding and patience you cant tell were the two will meet. good rust free parts could at one time be had from the desert states.

Yes- no need to move the thread. And thanks 65 Wagon for the suggestion. I will keep my eyes out for NOS or solid donor parts for that 67 coupe. Id still love to have NOS quarters even if I had to worry about alignment!

its nice to have them when you are putting thing back together as a reference, or as a pattern to produce more.

Ive heard good quarters can be used to make new panels but I always imagined they couldnt be as good as the real thing. Maybe thats incorrect? I have a set of convertible quarters I could use as a reference. They would be the same as hardtop for the lower portion Id be pretty sure. Could I expect good results using original panels to pattern new quarters if I found a good local craftsman?

my quarters are about 90 percent accurate the process itself  from pattern to finished product is very time comsuming plus you have to make sure all the inner supports are still together and in the proper place, I still haven't made the forms for the dog legs on 4 doors it looks so simple yet very complicated to reproduc025 (2).jpg004 (6).jpg005 (3).jpg010 (4).jpg

Nice handiwork, 65wagon! It looks like it takes fabrication skills or a lucky find full quarter. Consider what Fisher Body spent making multiple dies for successive strikes to form the quarter. That is where repros cheap out and use fewer dies. Maybe 4 as apposed to 7. GM amortized the cost over hundreds of thousands of units, while repros can't.
