    dynatourTN wrote:New to this site and not good with tech stuff please be patient. I bought my first B body a 79 caprice, not sure if sport coupe or not, no vinyl top so its not a landau. I need a Pass side quarter panel, taillight, r bumper, and turn signal switch is broken too. My plan is to replace those parts, get the all original 305 drivetrain running, paint the car black, put corvette rallys on, drive and enjoy. All help appreciated.. 10:21:41 2015-07-19 thank you

    Quarter panels are tough to find. Most of them are rusted. Bumpers usually aren't in very good condition either. If you can find someone who will ship either of them (I don't) it'll be pretty expensive too.
    Your best bet is to keep checking your local yards. Depending on how bad your 1/4 panel is, you may be able to use part of one from a 4 door.

    Turn signal switches are available at most auto parts stores. I suggest Rock Auto. https://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php

    Sorry, that's all I have to offer.

    79 impala grill

    Post  adamin on Mon Aug 03, 2015 10:20 pm

    I'm assuming that since the impala grill in the original post has a strikeout on it its sold, but if you ever find another one let me know. Also if there are any parts you're looking for specifically let me know, i'm on my 3rd 78/79 caprice/impala and have stripped each one as i've gone, thanks!

    Just want to give a shout out to Sweet Seventy9 for the all hard work in tracking down these parts for us! These cars are not easy to restore due to very little aftermarket and NOS parts are getting rarer by the day!! So, a big thank you to Sweet!!! I have 100% faith he'll find me a NOS 79 Caprice grill someday!

    Thanks Bro! It's nice to know there's people out there that understand how much time and effort that goes into finding parts.

    That is no joke. I once bought an entire car for front grilles and tail-lights.
    Shocked

    Yes.
    I also have just the bare housings, and bare housings w/HL cups & trim rings.

    If needed, I have NOS turn signals too.

    That's great to hear. Do the bare housings have the white inserts that the headlight screws screw into? I would need those as well. How much and how do I get those?

    Do you mean the bezel nuts? The 4 little square ones?
