Could you make them? And lets say even if you dont have a welder you might be able to form them from one piece of sheetmetal.

Before I got any tools I was able to do some creative sheetmetal work with a hammer, some heavy 2"x2" angle steel and some C-clamps. And even if you couldnt do it from one piece you might be able to make most of it from one piece and use fasteners to attach some other formed pieces to the main one if a welder is not available.

I learned the hard way (no money for proper tools) to fabricate parts that I needed using the most common of tools (hammer, drill and angle grinder and time).

Are they these pieces? The ends of the grille brackets?



If so they would be a fun lil sheetmetal project. If they are anything like mine on my 62 they could be hammer formed from one piece of sheetmetal.

Some good measurements will need to be made. It obviously would be much easier if you had the originals on hand to copy. But its doable without them.

Hope you find some or are able to make some. JR

hughie1987 and 1073nova355, used parts sales are to be conducted via PM or classifieds.
I listed both usernames so you would know who to PM.

The software does not default to saving sent messages. If you want to save them you need to manually select it.

If anyone gets in a pinch looking for parts. Try Desert Valley Auto Parts (DVAP). They're on TV, and they have cars that go way back. They even have whole Novas. They're near Phoneix, Az.
But be fore warned...They like their parts, ALOT! Plus you'll have to add on shipping.
