Looking for a fiberglass tilt frontend for my 65 Impala

I have been doing alot of research on my 1965 Impala 4 door and I have found very little. The reason I bought the car is coz you dont see these where I am from. Well I wanna tilt the front end and I need help. Preferrably, I would like it to be fiberglass to lighten the load of this massive 4 door.I am also looking to put and air bag suspension on it. Any info that will benefit me and my restoration of this classic please help me.

If you're into making one yourself, you could check out what the kit car guys are doing.

Somewhere on the web there are instructions for pulling a mold off an existing car. A lot of guys would rent a Ferrari or Lambo from some of the high-end rental guys, then cover it with a mold release and pull a mold off it before turning it in.

Apparently, you can do this without damaging the vehicle.

You could build a mold (probably multiple pieces) of the front end. Probably would need to spend plenty of time getting it aligned just right. Then use the mold to build yourself a fiberglass front end.

Bunch of work, but it might be your only option if no one makes one already.

And, you could always build a couple more and resell them after you've made yours.
