66 Grand Parisienne trunk drop question


Would the trunk drops on my 66 GP be the same as Impala?

I am betting no but I'll see if I can find you some part numbers after supper (eating late here tonight...)

Thanx Carl, my old body guy I took the GP to fix the roof may do the whole car for me. I have all new trunk pans and mounts but not trunk drops. They may be ok but if I can get new ones I will

The part number for Chevy is not the same Kevin and I couldn't even find a drawing of them.

Actually, you have both models on your yard. Take a quick peek under a blue Parisienne and a 66 Impala.

American Pontiac floor plans are very different than the Canadian (Impala) pans.

i looked at the trunk drops on the 66 impala and they sure look like the same. Trunk panels are the same for sure so that side of it will mate up, if quarter is different body guy can rework drop to make it fit. both sides are rotten so they have to be replaced. Trunk pans look good except  by the wheel well frame brace. I have a new trunk pan so he wants to put it in. Passenger side rear foot well is the only area with any rust on the floors so he will put in a new panel there. Front fenders and doors pretty good so Im not gona touch them for now. I will will recover seats , replace rug and install the new convertible top that came with the car. Mouse motor comes out and a mild 427 390hp goes in. She will be a driver for now, maybe a frame off resto but that will be later
