I need Rear Quarter Panels & Trunk drop filler extentions for my 67 Skylark. What GM "A" Body would best closely resemble the body style/ curves / & lines. They do make these parts for 67 chevelle/cutlass/lemans & temptest etc... but as of right now NONE for 67 skylark. I will buy the part that is as close as I can get, and then cut & weld, but I am not sure what car I should be looking at. What would you guys/gals suggest as a good alternative / substitute. Has anyone out there done this on their 67 skylark. Thanks JIM

I have not done a 67 skylark but the trunk drops are similar to all the cars that you mentioned. The most similar, if memory serves me correctly is the Cutlass. I'm sure with a little trimming (you usually need to trim any part like this regardless, even if it's car specific), it can be made to fit and fit well. I have done several 66, 67 Chevelles with this same problem before aftermarket parts where available and made the piece. If your originals are good enough to use as a pattern, that may be another option.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Ray, The last couple of hours I have been searching thru the internet to see who has the "closest" match". ShermanParts is the most likely candidate. Now I just have to choose from the pictures, which is the best one. Thanks JIM

you can fab those up really easy with a brake and bead roller, or even hammer formed 2x4's, but then again if you had those tools you probably wouldn't be asking.

Nothing.

Each division used completely different exterior sheet metal. Nothing else interchanges. 66/67 Skylark is probably the only interchange.

Okay Jim, I know it's a nasty situation...The AMX I did all those years ago I couldn't even get anything close to looking like AMX quarters. I didn't realize that those where the JC Whitney kind...thought if nothing else you might be able to piece a quarter together.

I punched in 1967 Buick Skylark 1/4 Panel and several came up on the internet. They were used units and i didn,t find any full 1/4s. There were partial replacement panels available new. Hope this helps.
