Will Chevy Outter Wheel Wells Fit?


Hi everyone, I'm new to the site and hope to draw on some of your expertise. We are doing a frame restoration on a '62 Parisienne 2 Dr HT. Does anyone know if Chevy rear outter wheel wells will fit? Mine are repairable but I would go new if it isn't too much hastle. Also looking to source exterior molding clips.

Judging by the general shape and wheel well lip, i would say no.

Thanks, appreciate it!  I've not engaged in anything body before, always been more mechanical, guess we should stick to what we know.  Been doing the frame off with my son, he likes the shaping and welding side of things.  Plan to get the metal work done then send it out to finish.

Any recommendations on where to look for the side molding clips?

A good way to check rear wheel wells for fit is a fender skirt. The 62 Chev 2 door and 4 door have the same lip and rear quarter plus trunklid for that matter, earlier years had differences in those areas. I assume a 62 Cdn Pontiac had those same things matching whether a 2 door, 4 door, hardtop, sedan, or convertible, in case you are looking for a used part.

Thanks, a fender skirt would be a great template.  I don't have access to fender skirts but am fortunate that I was able to buyer a good 2 Dr HT donar car from Manitoba.  I have some spare body parts incase I have the misfortune of someone hitting me I will be able to be my own parts store so to speak.  I will remove everybody usable body part, glass blast, prime and store.

I notice no one is commenting on a source for body clips.  Am I to read into that, that there simply isn't anyone out there selling them?
