Will parts from other brands fit my 47 special?


Recommended Posts

I would like to know if there is a interchange manual or something to know what parts were shared on the 2 door aero sedans betweem the other gm brands? I know mounting holes for trim and tailights may be different but I need a rear drivers side fender in a bad way. I've been told that buick,oldsmobile, chevrolet, and pontiac all have the same body parts and some trim and other small parts from the cowl back. This would also mean patch panel avalibity would be much more readily available.

I turned up nill for CL in my area but in a small rural area its to be exspected unless I posted a wanted add. So I was just on hollanders website and was wondering if anyone has used their new stuff? They have domestic for 1930s-48,46-56, and others that go into the 60s. Are these as good as the old ones?

Did you see my reply on your question about the 1947 grille?

I think the 1946-48 Buick Series 40 rear fenders will be the same, possibly the 1941-42 as well but less sure on these two. Closest to Buick might be the Oldsmobile fenders as they shared the GM "B" body. I think the Chevrolet used the "A" body. I think the Pontiac torpedo backs used the "B" body as well but other Pontiacs used the "A" body.
