  1. I've been dealing with a yard in WI called Elmer's Auto Salvage regarding some parts for my coupe. They have a very rough convertible. I inquired as to the convertible parts: top bows, quarter panel tops, locks, rear windows, rear seat, etc... everything to convert a coupe. Not for me, but figured there may be someone interested. They said all the parts can be had for $1000. Their number is 1-800-362-5004 Regards
  2. Josh, I've been emailing to a yard in WI, Elmer's auto salvage, regarding some parts I was looking for. I remembered you were looking for license plate light bezels. They have a pair for $20. A bit rough, but maybe useable? see pic. Their number is 1-800-362-5004 Hope this helps. Dan
  3. Has anyone ever seen this accessory in person? If you look at the salesmen's brochure under accessories, it shows a dual rear defroster. I've attached an image that shows it. However, in searching around, I have never seen this on these cars. It would only be an accessory available on cars without A/C. It would be similar to this kit selling on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-1952-1953-1954-1955-Lincoln-DUAL-REAR-DEFROSTER-KIT-1955-1956-Ford-Mercury-/321893110527?vxp=mtr At first, I thought this might be it, but the vent grilles look to be a different shape, not like the ones in the br
  4. Josh, I talked the gentleman with the parts car I mentioned. He has already sold off the rear bumper. Sorry.
  5. Sometimes you see the whole assembly for sale on ebay. I haven't seen anyone who makes reproductions. Only for the lens. Sometimes for parts, I've looked on craigslist for someone selling a parts car and then have contacted them about buying just certain parts. I know of one gentleman in Oregon who I contacted regarding a parts car he was selling. He did not have what I needed, but I was going to call him again soon. I'll inquire about the license plate bezels and see if he still has those. Are you looking for anything else? Depending on what else you need, it may make sense to get a parts
  6. That's a shame. What do you mean 27 of them? Did he have more? I had emailed that email address he listed some time ago (still a while after he posted) but never heard back. Then going through the forums, I found this one again.
  7. mark, whatever happened to these cars?
  8. started to take more parts off the car and examine condition. I may also need the trim on the front of the hood and the two curved trim pieces on the front sides of the hood.
  9. Tex, Thanks. I actually saw the posts about your car. When I got mine I started looking up information online and your one thread is in the top 20 google results. Actually, it was what lead me to the AACA forum. Mine is way not as nice as that one, the original owner parked it in 1978 and there it sat until about a year ago when the 2nd owner bought it from him or his estate. He did some motor work to get running, but there's no way I would do that, the gas pedal is broken off at the base, and the brakes technically work. The frame looks okay, at least to my untrained eye, but the bottom of
