  • Anyone have a '57 sedan front clip?

    Anyone here in the mid Atlantic area (Within a day's drive of Baltimore) have a '57 front clip they would be willing to sell? It would be going on my '57 Commander 4dr to get it back to LOOKING like a '57! I need the whole thing, hood, bumper, fenders, grill. What condition and how much? Need a '56 front clip?

    If you have some of the parts, let me know. If I don't get the whole thing in one piece, or the clip I get has minor damage, I might need them.

    Thanks!

        Price is right, but ARIZONA?My truck gets, maybe 15 miles/gallon! Bringing it back to Baltimore would be a fortune! Probably spend three thimes the price having it shipped, but might be worth it.
        Wonder if one might show up at York?

          Just talked to the guy in AZ. He said he shipped a Ford clip to Jersey for $700.

          I hope I find one at York!

            I have a 57 Champion 4dr in the junk yard. part of the front end is missing and I don't know what kind of shape the rest of it is in. I'll check on it for you when it warms up a bit. NT

                Maybe you could get that relay thing going, won't be long before the snowbirds start flocking out of AZ. I sent that link before i read where you were located. My bad.

                  No harm done. At least I know they're out there. Price is good too, if I could get it shipped!
                  If I don't find one at York, maybe I'll bite the bullet and buy the thing!

                    Charles, I checked on the 57 in my 'PARTS" yard. The fenders appear to be solid but surface rusted, no major dents or bents. The header panel and rad support are pretty good. The hood is buckled at the corners but can be fixed.(I'v fixed worse). All the grill pieces are gone. So is the bumper. If you are still interested, I will try to get Matthew to take some pictures.

                      Did you happen to look at the rear bumper?
