67 chrome fender moldings/trim

Aight gents I’m looking for the chrome moldings that go on the doors and along the back side for a 67 4 door hardtop. I’ve seen originals that got pulled off of old rides but people are wanting 800-1000 for them and that’s just not happening right now. Was wondering if anyone had a link or could point me in the right direction for some after market or remanufactured ones. Don’t have to be original i just need them on to fill the holes right now.
Thanks!

It would be a lot cheaper to buy a parts car (or several) if you have the room. It gets real expensive buying a car a piece at a time. Good news the 1964 has more restoration parts than any other full size this side of the fully reproduced TriFive Chevys.

You can find original metal parts that are rust free in the Mojave desert (California, Nevada), or the Sonora desert (Arizona, New Mexico) and the Chihuahua desert (west Texas). If you need interior parts look inside cow barns in Minnesota and Wisconsin, or farm equipment sheds in Ohio, Iowa, and Illinois.

If and when you finish your car(s) you can usually turn around and sell your stripped parts cars to another desparate person trying to restore his car project iin the future when there are even fewer parts cars available to mine. This is a very expensive hobby and many projects are abandoned because people run out of money before they get their car's finished. I suggest planing ahead and developing a spread sheet.

There are some on ebay for $600 right now. They are impossible to find so if you don't have any, grab what you can.

There are three 1967 bodies coming up for auction soon in Miami. You didn't mention where you lived but these auctions occur all the time. Also consider a trip to the impound lot where you live to see when their annual auction is next scheduled. I have purchased early seventy Nova bodies for under $300 not too many decades ago at an impound lot annual sale.

Most junk yards crush older cars to make room for cars that they can sell parts off of. So finding a sixties car body is rare in Central Florida, In Western North Carolina or Northern Georgia not so much. I have crawled back country roads and seen many yards with sixties era Chevys stacked like cord wood against the back fence with trees growing through them. I have upwards of seven acres of open ground behind my barn that I hide project cars from the county code inspectors and insurance investigators. I don't live in the city for that reason (I wouldn't live in deed restricted; home owner association controlled property if you paid me). So if you live in a town house above the second floor with no elevator I can understand not having a couple of parts cars in the living room.
