Sorry about the lousy pic quality (old scanner)...I'm still looking for both right and left mint full convertible quarter panels for it,or,failing that,a mint drivers side 64-65 Barracuda full quarter as I have a passenger side full quarter now that I could use.Please email me if you have any leads.Thanks.

Cheers,
Darwin

P.S. Neil,love the forum!

UPDATE!!!(Aug./2002) WooHoo...I finally found a mint drivers quarter!! It's from a 65'Cuda,but, we will be cutting and piecing the sections we need for the 'vert project. I located this gem at Wildcat Auto Wrecking in Sandy,Oregon (http://www.wildcatmopars.com)...They were extremely helpfull,sent me digital pics of the quarter panel and were very accomodating the day we arrived to pick it up. While they were cutting the quarter off the Cuda,we roamed the yard.Oh,man,what a thrill!! I was like "a kid in a candy store"! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for those hard to find parts.
Well,thats it for now.

Talk @ you later

Neil,like the new look!!!!!

Got any more pictures of your project!?

Neil...not really a lot of progress lately...been messing with the Dart and helping my son on his S10/350 project. I have replaced the rusty floor pan (worse than your Valiant)with a complete,factory pan(firewall to under rear seat)that I cut from a solid 4 door car in a wrecker here.Have to weld in my 4 speed tunnel also. I got both full quarters from 2 different '65 Barracuda's (one local, 1 from Wildcat) and cut-and-pieced wheel-wells and trunk extensions into the Valiant.I'm just now getting ready to finish-weld the drivers' quarter skin onto the car.I picked up a '65 273-2 and automatic for nothin' from a guy who was cleaning out his garage and just wanted it gone. It's locked up,but it would've probably needed boring anyway. I also picked up a '65 273 bellhousing,flywheel,Z-bar and bottom cover at Cloverdale Swap meet a few years ago,so with the Six-Banger A833(low 1st gear),8-3/4 and 3.23,she should go OK, but thats a ways down the road yet. Next time you're out and you have more free time,come over and take a peek.
I do have some pics,but they are from the pre-digital days and I'd have to find a place to scan them.

Sorry for long story...
