1967 SS Impala - looking for "rare parts".

Hi I'm looking to add a few final touches to MY '67 SS Impala:

The parts are:

- Hideaway headlights to fit '67 Impala (I know they made them for '68's & have seen on them a custom named "Devil's Chariot" in a Lowrider Magazine & nowhere else);

- Centre Console, or at least the back part of it, as mine is partly broken.

- Over riders for the front and back bumper bars(I think that's what Americans call them also. They are metal vertical additions to bumper bars);

- Factory original Tachometer.

I have never seen hide-a-ways on a 67.

The over riders would be called 'bumper gaurds'

The gaurds are common on the Caprice model
Might also look into cornering lamps if not already equipped- will require some wiring and possibly a different turn sig. switch


Edit--Just noticed your intro post---That gold color with the black vinyl is a striking combination on cars fully equipped with all the trim.

LOL thanks mate...the car's actually been in Australia since 1967-68 maybe via Canada(as per the keys cut etc)...& I didn't change the colour Bryan - lol it's more Orange than red...& it's way older than me, even the right hand conversion was done back then(which makes sense)......I'm told either a real rich guy had it imported and converted(would have cost a fortune back then & all that way), or a gangster/criminal(u can fit heaps in the boot)...lol (-:

I have the cornering lights and all the wiring & I was real lucky to fluke those for a bargain price...

...all the sites are good for most parts except the 4 I've noted...regarding the console I've been outbidded once before(ebay) & aftermarket manufacturers only make the inserts...I'm gonna email a request to classicindustries.com & post the feedback here also for anyone else interested...

...thanks 4 the help so far everyone...much appreciated.
