WANTED: 1966 Bonneville Cowl??


Any replacement sheet metal for this? Cowl? Or can I interchange something similar to make work?

Hidden Valley Auto Parts in Maricopa has a real nice 66 4 door sedan. I'm not positive it's the same (because the windshields aren't) but I think it is.

I've looked at the car a few times. They also have a 65 Grand Prix.

Mike,

I believe Ecklers sells the cowl for a Chev. Looked the same as my Catalina. You could check out Dynacorn. I made a channel myself and welded it in across the whole lower window channel but my corners were not as bad as yours. I used a sheet metal brake and a pair of shrinker/stretchers. Turned out great.

Bill.

They do look very similar except for the part where theres more of those larger holes on mine vs the Chevy?
