Found this post via a google search and am interested if anyone has any new info on "best deals" for rear quarters for a 66 American.

I am going to do some scratching and measuring on my 66 and see if the front fenders would make a good template for over the wheel as suggested here.

Desperate times call for drastic measures.... is that how it goes?

Sounds like it would be a good look, if I remember the chevelle right.  What year chevelle, you remember?

My brother cut the wheel arches from front fenders and grafted them on to the rear quarters. It was not readily apparent and if noticed they actually looked pretty good.
Why Ramblers? Chicks dig 'em. Whatever it is, I can take it apart.

Talked with Don, he used 68-69 chevelle panels and part of the outer wheel house. Removed about an inch from center of panels where they match. Had to measure wheel well and get correct width, remove extra at overlap.

There's still good used panels out there, I bought a barn car from upper. Michigan, stored for years a project never started. I got the whole car just for the rear qtrs.

I believe the clearance on the Scramblers was a factory procedure.

Theres a classic car wrecking yard in eastern washington. I was able to cut out the rear quarters. Even those had some rust in them. I had to fabricate the lower rears by hand. When I was all done you wouldn't even be able to tell my 66 classic had any work done. Of course I had to use some filler to smooth out the hammer strikes but not much!
