I know this has been done to death. I have created this thread in hopes of creating a collaborative effort from the members here on steves to email as many of the suppliers who make body panels for the car as possible and hopefully with enough pressure and pictures of rust they will see a market for reproducing the rear panel like they have done for the 66 onward models.

I'm talking this:



For our 62-65 cars.

I had to cut mine from a parts car that IMHO could have been a builder. I hated doing it, but noone offers what we need. Not only would reproducing this panel create lots of busines for them, it would also help save these cars from being cannibalized.

I've been happy with verything I've bought from Goodmark. If they had this, I would've bought it.

This is exactly what I'm trying help solve. I think it would benefit both the companies and us.

Here are a couple email addresses. I emailed both of these already.

Classic Industries:

Goodmark:

Post any more that come to mind and we can email those too.

I'd buy one! It makes no sense that you would sell one for a car built for two years versus a car built for 4 years. :confused:

Good news!

I just got this email from Tony Pascale at goodmark:

Tom,

We are currently in the development process on the tail panel for the 62-65 Nova and it should be available sometime this summer. Please continue to check our website for the release date of this product.
Thanks
So I guess we just gotta hold out till summer!

Wow great news !
Im sure there are now a lot of unHappy Wreckers out there!
But this really means more cars back on the road instead of being parted out by wreckers!
Good for the industry !

That is pretty dumb too.. Its because the second gens are more sought after. At least the 66/7 trunk drop offs can be made to work on first gens. Just requires a little tweaking from the research I've done. Theres a thread on it somewhere.
