Howdy -

Got 77 and 78 Fury Cop cars, and I'd like to acquire some sheet metal before this stuff becomes completely impossible to find.

To simplify things, if you need application-specific, this is for 78 Plymouth Fury 4 Door Sedan 440-4v (police)

Here is my list of part numbers and descriptions:

4015718
4015719 Quarter Panel Rear Floor Pan Side (i.e. trunk extension)
These seem to be pretty rare, they weren't shared from an earlier car

3616946 Quarter Panel Outside (repair). i.e. not a full quarter, but a patch panel I guess
3616947
Judging by this being a 36 PN, this might work on other models

3445058 Wheel House, Rear, Inner
3445059
Interestingly enough, it seems any 71-78 B body has the same piece here. 2 door or 4 door. That might help some of you folks here to know. Lots of people are reproducing them now

3615312 Wheel House, Rear, Outer
Now I actually traced this back to 73 Coronet 4 Door, so I'm assuming 73 and 74 Coronet 4 door would work (not satellite), or any 75-78 B body with 4 door. Satellite sheet metal seems to be a bit different on the hind quarter

3791566 Front floor pan, dual exhaust

3792126 Center Floor pan extension
3792127

3792264 Center Floor Pan

4015351 Rear Floor

I don't expect any floor pan hits, but it would be great!

I already found two leads on NOS quarters, but both of them were sold by the time I got there. Doh!

I don't care if this is NOS or cut off the car. But it needs to be usable and not distorted if it is cut


Thanks!!

There is an old Mopar yard that might be able to help. Call Gary at Winkle Auto. 603-673-4616. He drives cross country and buys and parts out old Mopars. He may be able to help.

Just to follow up. I called, and he doesn't have what I need. He did put me in contact with someone else, though.

If anyone else has any leads or parts, let me know. Many thanks

Try Wildcat Mopar in Oregon or Desert Valley Auto Parts here in the Phx area. Another thing to consider is to buy a 1975-78 4 door Body, take what you want and sell off the rest.

That's a good idea Bearhawke. They're just rare as hen's teeth up here in the northeast. I located a 2 door in my state, but the sheet metal is different. There's a garage-kept Monaco out in Illinois I found on Craiglist for $2000. It looks factory new. It's too nice to cut and since it's not a police car, I don't really need it. Link below if anyone is interested, it could use a good home. Hate to have some teen buy it and then wreck it

Thanks for the suggestions. Already put feelers out to DVA. Not sure abut Wildcat, but I am going to look into it. I appreciate it!

It's a shame but those 78 cop cars just rotted away bad. I had one that came from the west coast and was rock solid. Most of the ones I looked at locally (this was in Ohio) were rotten in so many places. This want Chrysler's best time for corrosion resistance. Hope you can find the parts, they are awesome cars.

The R body replacements were much better at resisting rust. Not perfect, but way better.

Yeah, it was about the worst time, you are right. I've been getting into contact with as many arizona yards as I can find. I found a lead on one quarter but they want $500 + shipping. I'm going to have to carefully think about that, I'm not rich and that seems like a gouge. All I have so far after two weeks of shaking trees is an NOS trunk extension. I'd prefer NOS panels or aftermarket panels instead of cutting a car but I'll do what I have to. I have skills to make panels but I really would rather not spend that time if I don't have to. I'm going to stay on the search

By the way I found a really active forum over at moparts if anyone needs an active parts trading place. They have tons of users and a lot of activity

Late 1970's cars as a group were bad although it seemed that the Mopars then were the worst of the Detroit 3...............
