      I can't believe this same issue with AMD and the 67 Satellite quarter panel problem is still going on! Five years ago when my Satellite needed them, AMD was saying the same thing--they "might" start producing them. It set my restoration back a year until we just moved on and used donor parts and other metal. Turned out great (and now I have to let the car go), but please don't wait for AMD. They keep making promises and then back out saying there isn't a big enough call for these quarter panels as they lose more and more business. It's so silly.

      We aren't asking for much, basically 3 parts but they have spent the last few years making Ford and chevy truck parts.

        As of now,the Mopar parts haven't turned a profit for AMD. The tooling costs to make them are very costly. They make their money off the GM and Ford stuff. They only make the Mopar stuff, because they are Mopar guys. I am sure that some of the more popular Mopar stuff has turned a profit, but overall there isn't much of a market for Mopar parts,so it's easy to say,just make this or just make that,but they are in business to make money like anyone else that runs a business, so we should count our blessings that someone finally stepped up and made parts for our cars. It was a long time coming!

          Like others, I would have purchased any necessary parts, most particularly those desperately needed rear quarter panels, from AMD, but they gave the same lame excuse. My restoration is done and I have no need for any further parts.

          Someone who does need these parts should ask AMD what they have against these model cars and why they don't think they're worth restoring. It's the only reason I can think of for why they feel it isn't worth producing 5000 pieces. There are certainly 2500 (give or take and assuming a pair would be purchased at a time) of these vehicles out there that do or will need these parts.

          All I hear on 66-67 B body forum is quarter panels trunk extensions and outer wheel houses. There is a new member @Joe Phillips that says he can help. He made a quarter panel for a local friend of mine and he is really pleased. I don't know his prices but I will say that my friend was only to glad to pay and get something that works on his car. This may be everyone's early option on AMD dragging their ass. Talk doesn't cost anything.

          A friend sent me this today. I guess it was posted somewhere. @Joe Phillips has made a quarter panel for a good friend of mine and he is delighted. Here is another job by him apparently well done. FullSizeR(1).jpg FullSizeR(2).jpg FullSizeR(3).jpg

          Those look great. Way better than the Sherman stuff. As long as he has the correct distance on the lines. Its smaller at the rear than it is up by the door. They taper along the way to the back.

              im sure they are nice and very impressive that he has the skill to make something like that but im gonna wait for AMD quarters, drop offs and outer wheel houses.... honestly im getting tired of watching all the Ford and truck stuff come out while we wait.
