Thanks Dale.

Some other bad news,

That beautiful trunk rubber I bought from you years ago may not be saveable.

Replica Plastics seems to be the only choice when going for this kind of stuff. They are the only source that I know of for 1970's car filler panels for 5 mph bumpers.

 

Randy, I'm looking forward to seeing your '69 Parisienne after paint!

Hi Randy; thanks for doing a good install. Sorry you have to replace it thou. Order Impala; try Antique Chev in Dundas. Should have it in stock or maybe your local jobber who can source it from Cross Canada. Just make sure its US made.

 I thought it was spoken for ?

If it's as nice as the kick panels you sent me, somebody will score.

 

The second you unbolt it, it will be gone.

If not, eBay and let the bidding begin biggrin

I sold a super nice Canadian nose cone for 400 bucks about 10 years ago. It was my biggest prize from a 69 parts car. The thing was still soft and pliable.

Went south protected in wooden crate. should have hung onto it...for you Randy.

So I thought I should finish off this thread.

The fiberglass nosecone is very nice but after close inspection it would be useless without the steel substructure of the original nose.

Nose.jpg

 

nose bones.jpg

This is the bones of a US 1969

The US material just falls off making it easy to replace.

1969 Catalina

Pontia nose.jpg

My original nose, with the stronger Canadian material, is too nice to destroy especially knowing that someone could use it.

It has already found a home with someone with a lot of experience in repairing them and will end up on a very special 1969.

I will be trading it for a part I cant find anywhere else.

In to the picture comes Jerl,

Who would have thought I would find a nose like this,

Thank you again Sir !

nose cone.jpg

My body guy turn that into this !

So I will keep the fiberglass one for now, in a box or maybe wall art.

But what would I do without Canadian Poncho and it's fine members to help me ?

The noses are not Canadian or American, they are early and late production. The early ones have a thin non-tapered lip when viewed with the hood open, the later ones have a much thicker lip. More importantly the early ones crumble to nothing but the later version used the same material used on the 68-72 GTO bumpers which are basically bullet proof. I'm not sure when the switchover occurred, it may have even been after 69 car production ended. As an example of how durable the later ones are I bought one from a guy parting out a 4dr sedan Catalina in Oklahoma that had been sitting in a field for 20 plus years and it still had it's original Verdoro Green paint and zero deterioration of the rubbery material.  Here it is installed on one of my Bonnie's still wearing it's green factory paint.

Thanks North !

Both these parts must be the later.

My car was built March 14th.

002a.jpg004a.jpg005a.jpg

The problem with mine was the steep incline at the golf course that the son in-law of former owner played at.

Before the new springs were installed, he rubbed the upper layer right off.

The expose material cracked and dried up.

And North,

Thanks for the rear antenna mesurements.

 

That Bonneville power unit went in perfectly.

Randy, above you posted some photo's of just the bare skeleton of the nose piece. The bumper I want to hang on the wall is ok, but something must have caught the bottom of the nose piece, and bent the one side down a bit. I'm hoping to straighten it, but could really use some photo's of the backside of the bottom of the skeleton.

You mean the thin one? My Laurentian had one of those when I bought it. The bottom has a piece broken out of it. I found the durable one on eBay and replaced it.
