67 B body shared parts?
Permalink  
 


looking for A pillar ( interior windshield left and right trim) what years share commonality w my 67 biscayne?  The 67's are plastic and soooo brittle they are unrepairable - zero aftermarket... I know the earlier and possibly later years are metal - That would be great! Thanks Gentlemen

( tell me '68 is same same cuz I got a set off ebay earlier LOL - if not... will have some for trade!)

IMG_4354.JPGI looked in my interchange manual (it's a bit limited on all parts) and could not find any info on the a pillars. I can tell you from experience that the ones from an Impala or a Caprice are to short. The windshield is shared from 1965-1968 all Sedans and Wagons,as well as the vent windows/wind wings. Here's a couple pic of mine on my 68.They measure approximately 22 1/4" long. Mine are metal covered with thick foam and a vinyl covering. These were out of my 68 Belair parts car and have not been restored. I do have a set of green ones out of my Biscayne for reference. If you need more pic or info PM me and I will help you where i can.

The A-Pillar trim in my '67 Impala Convertible were also metal. I didn't know plastic ones were produced for that year. I figured plastic came into production in the late '70's, early '80's.

Here's the one's I bought - ( Maybe they are too short since they come just metal..with no foam and vinyl? and that "stuffing" would bring them up to dimension?) - I can make em work for sure... if not - I will tape up the A pillar and do a fiberglass replica right there on the car... then take em down, trim em up and paint em... more than one way to skin a cat! anyway - here's also a cpl pic's of my  "Fawn"  plastic junk...same plastic that holds the armrest pads just wayyyyyy thinner. This car was definitely bottom of the barrel in trim level. ( Kinda like me!)

Looks like a totally different part than both sets I have. I'm under assumption that the pillars I have are part of the Fedral Saftey Standads implemented for 1968 motor vehicles. I like the glass repair you are talking about if worse came to worse. Another alternative would be to reinforce the back side if there flimsy,use some clay to fill the cracks, thin poster board for runoff and on the areas to split where the part would wrap under itself ( to prevent die lock). Seal the pillar and apply a release agent. Make a quick fiberglass mold then cast your new parts from the molds. Exact replica that you can paint to whatever you want.

'65-'66 sedan might fit. I have '65-'67 2 dr post cars so I may try some fitting. The front windshield is same for '65-'68 so the treim should be same or close to it.
