Body repair panels for 1941 Dodge Business Coupe

I have just acquired a '41 Dodge 3-win (business) coupe. This is a full up resto, and I'm looking for all panels to basically replace the entire lower foot or so around the car.

I've scoured the net for resources and I'm coming up blank. Lot's of stuff for 60s and newer Mopar and '36 and older, but not for the war cars.

Any ideas?

George

You may wind up making most of those panels...look at metalmeet.com as those guys do that sort of thing..You will be amazed at what can be done with fairly minimal tooling and some time..

Also do a search here as several fellows have built their own repair panels for cars that have hard to find parts..

Yeah, I kinda figured that.

I don't think I'll have problems with too many panels. Where I think I'll have to get some advice is how to form the door opening corners.

I'll check out the links nonetheless.

I just asked a customer for you and he said maybe Rocker King might have older patch panels available. Located I think south of Milwaukee. 262-549-9583
