    My grandmother used to say "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear"If you patch up a rust bucket you still have a patched up rust bucket.I found out a long time ago people would rather pay less for a rotten car than more for a repairable one thinking they could fix it up for cheap !

    Bob,
    Not to take this off thread, do you happen to have a Left front door widow regulator
    for a 1964 4door Cruiser?

    Leroy Carey of Carey's Fabricating makes (or used to) that rear trunk box section. I used one of his panels back in the late 90s on my '53. I don't have any current contact info tho.

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies.
    Yes, swapping bodies would have been much easier but this car has a lot of family history and I have too much time and $ invested in it all ready. So far I have completed the passenger floors from the fire wall to the trunk hump, new body mounts, torque box, inner & outer rocker & a lot of fab work on stuff that isn't available. Would I redo another car as bad? Nope. But the car has been in the family since new in '63. Donor stuff, anyone?

If I had it all to do again, I would find a west coast donor shell or just start with something in better condition. I like doing body work but I would like to spend my time driving my Lark instead of patching it

    My 1962 Lark was probably sold new here in the Phx area and it's almost 100% rust free, I'm from Wash DC and understand body rot quite well.............

    What a coincidence, I happen to have one. Primered, so you can paint it any color you want. Tired motor and trans, originally delivered to Huntington Park, CA. Solid everywhere. $2K + shipping. Swap the parts you need (not recommended) or swap the body tags or ....

    Back in the news group days, a guy passed on Hawk like yours that I had for sale because he found a local rust bucket for bit less than mine. A year or two later, he was 6K into floor and body repair to get where your car is right now. On some cars, the cancer spreads everywhere and is almost impossible to cut it all out.

    Greetings everyone!
    First, I'm new to the forum and thought I'd jump in here to see if I can get some help looking for donor steel for my current project. I'm working on a full restoration on a 1963 GT Hawk and at present need:
    Rear inner trunk latch panel, not just the piece that Classic is repoping but the panel it attaches to (from the right to left of the trunk walls and from the floor base to the weather strip seal area).
    Right rear tail light mounting panel, the piece that is welded to the fender that the tail light bolts to.
    Right rear inner quarter from just behind the wheel tub to the tail light mount.

    I'm hoping some one out there in Stude land has these on a donor car with a lot less rust than the crap that I've removed and know that these pieces may not be "perfect" but repairable.
    I'm attaching photos of what I'm looking for, thanks in advance.
