Does anyone out there have a genuine, rust free(!!)deck lid for the 64 up Lark type. I'm in Ohio, might go to Reedsville. I don't need it immediately but will soon enough.

Nelson, is you fail going the club route, let me know. I deal with vintage salvage yards quite a bit and I think a western yard told me $350 (plus shipping). I'm going to be looking for 1 or 2 depending what I do with the Commander.

I've always found it curious that the 64-5-6 decklids (NOS ones) dried up so fast. Wagonaire tailgates too. Did none of those used in Canadian production get saved after Hamilton shut down?

I think the Canadian shut down coincided with the plant running out of decklids.

They always have been in very short supply ever since the die broke, I do not think the Supply in Plant 8 SB Warehouse EVER was up to the usual standard. To finish cars on the Hamilton line, they must have used up most of the intended parts supply. The tailgates not so much, they were around into the '70.s.

Very rare in rust free condition now.

It also seems to me that the 64-66 deck lids had more rust issues than 63 and prior.

Nels,

If you are still looking for a deck lid for a 64 we have two. One is off a 64 that had the full trim panel on the rear. The other is off a 65 that had the single piece of trim on the rear. The cost would be 150.00 for each. If interested please email me at aandrautobody@yahoo.com. We also have other parts for that vehicle as well as for other vehicles.

I will not be going to Reedsville. I am headed to Az next month and will try to pick one up out there or maybe on the way. I'm really not in any hurry as I am just trying to line up some parts for a future restoration.

I may be going, Nels. If not, Lindsey may be going your way soon and he will be in Reedsville, too. I'll look for you if I go and can bring it back. The '65 down the street has a really nice and solid deck lid, but someone drilled a small hole in it for a CB antenna cable.
