I wouldn't be surprised hahaha. There is very little rust around the front fenders, just some in front of the doors at the bottom. It'll definitely need quarters... It's rusted about 2-4 inches all the way around the well and carries on right till the back bumper.

Alright Good to know. I'll keep that in mind... Do you know if quarters off a 2 door pariessene from the same year would work? I saw one around town and it looked similar...

im on here every day once the snow flys, its time to hybrinate, or hide from the office in my case. if you check out " quarter panel production and install " you can see how they are made. one thing to remember is that the inners are the reason the outes rot out , if the new ones dont fit right the outers skins wont either especially on these things, that means the trim wont fit nor will skirts.

         We have a member (Bud Dewson) from Toronto who drove to Arizona and bought southern panels and doors

          He says the southern stuff fit, but most members here "do not believe" him

wont work wagon only, it can be from a 65 66 but has to be from a wagon, compare the shape and lenght of the two, sedans and rags 2drs are all the same but a wagon weather american poncho or canuk are their own animal

I know this is an older thread but it's a topic that comes up from time to time that never seems to have a solid answer. I found an answer on another forum in a 15 year old post. Someone posted that they put a 66 Grand Prix 1/4 panel on a 65 Parisienne convertible and it fit perfectly.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

yes I have a 65 Parisienne convertible and changed the RH rear quarter panel with a rust free Arizona 66 Grand Prix. Fits perfect!! 66 are in most cases better sheet metal..doors are interchangeable 65 66, too. Only the inner rear sash channel frame need for change 65 with 66 door to drill a hole to fix at higher rear end where the door jamb meets. No problem! 65 66 Grand Prix, Catalina and Parisienne are same quarters, doors..only the Bonneville 2 door has longer quarters....doors / fendes are the same..
