Wanted: Hood, Decklid. San Jose, CA

Hi,

My 1967 Cougar is at the body shop getting closer to being ready for paint. I'm trying to find a clean/rust free hood and decklid. I'm located in San Jose, CA. I've checked the local Craigslist ads but I haven't had much luck. I realize these are hard to find without a lot of rot but figured I'd give it a shot.

Thanks,
Bryan

Still looking for these parts. I'm looking all over and haven't had any luck. Does anyone have any idea of a place that might have good parts in California?

Bryan,
Have you tried contacting Mike Brown to see if he has any leads?

Craigslist is a great spot in California as cars and parts are traditionally in great shape.

WCCC is also able to ship realtivly quickly.

Is your goal to have it ready for the June show in Oakley?

Unfortunately, my car will not be ready in time. I'm just trying to get it out of the body shop by summer so I can start putting it back together. I've tried Craigslist in the Bay Area but it's just expensive project cars and junk parts. I picked up a hood with no rot on the underside last week but the top had tons of surface rust. I've tried Turner's and WCCC and was told they only have grade B items with rot. I'm not looking for perfect NOS but I'd like something with minimal dings and rust and I'm just not seeing it. I'll give Mike a try and see if he has any leads. Thanks.

There is a deadline when it comes to the lunch being provided. If you email me I can help put you in contact with Rob Crowder and John Swanson.

These events are worth attending with or without a car as it’s about everyone getting together.

I probably have a deck lid. I can’t help with a hood though.

I plan on attending the Fabulous Ford show , and could possibly bring it with me

Let me check
