60's promo parts

Recommended Posts

Looking for a couple parts for some promo cars I have.

Would like to find a few parts.

front bumper and both rear taillight lenses for the tan 62 wagon.

Hood and wiper cowl for the blue 60 wagon. Mine is cracked down the middle, possibly repairable though, haven't tried.

Trades.

Not sure what I'm going to do with the 66 galaxies yet. It kinda needs everything.

I think I have everything I need for the red 61 convertible, and the white 63 galaxies. Not so sure the 63 galaxies is a promo though.

What's wrong with the '62 front bumper.

If it's just the chrome plating, you'll likely not find anything in much better shape.

There are companies that will re-plate chrome parts for you, or you can do it yourself with one of the "chrome" paints.

I would just fix the cowl on the '60.

The likelihood of finding a replacement is slim, & it will be much easier to repair a crack than to replace the whole thing.

The '63 looks like a kit with the hood glued in place.

Look underneath.

If there is either a separate engine assembly or a space for one, it's a kit.

If it is a one piece chassis with the engine bottom molded in or an "engine plate" installed, it's a promo.

A dead give away is whether or not the hood is molded in place, or if it's a separate part.

Hmmm. can't seem to get my picture to upload... working on it, will edit it in. Must be something going on with the forum, tried from my phone and from my computer, getting an upload failed error each time.
