Inner Rear Window Support

No idea if this is the right place to post this but I have discovered some obscure damage on my '66 Post. Wondering if there is a company that remanufactures this part or if anyone knows of a '66 being parted out that could supply this part?

Re: Inner Rear Window Support

Does the window work properly? If so, I’d be inclined to just weld in a few small patches to keep things from moving around. I’m thinking your only hope for a complete replacement piece would be from a salvage.

Re: Inner Rear Window Support

Somebody cut that to get the window out! With a sawzall, it looks like. I don't think those are repo'd, you are going to have to find a parts car.

It was a bit rough to roll down and back up. The game plan might be to weld some patches into. I was thinking the salvage route also, see what pops up.

I honestly have no idea what they were thinking but the car took a hit to the rear quarter. This I knew because I magnet would not stick to it, had no idea about that inner support though due to it being hid behind the interior panel. I am guessing that they cut up that portion and bent it up to hammer out the fender from the back side. You can see hammer marks on the back of the fender.

Talk to this guy. He quickly replied to my email about a trans tunnel for a 70-72. Price was right.

Re: Inner Rear Window Support

That is an inner Quarter. Removable by drilling out the spot welds, around the perimeter, but it is a laborious process. Have done it on the '68 - '72 generation A cars.

Re: Inner Rear Window Support

Does any one know if a hardtop is the same as a post in that area? I have a complete 1/4 section that I will be separating out in the future

This car is going to be a labor intensive process. The individual/s that "repaired" certain areas of the car did a terrible job.

Do you have any pictures of it for comparison? Dependng on the price you are looking for, I could potentially purchase it and graft it in.

Unfortunately, they do not deal with '64-67 A body's.

Yes that panel will interchange from Sedans to Hardtops.
