    Anyone know of a vender that sells the convertible inner and outer rear wheelhouses? I have a friend that has a 69 Sport Satellite that needs some. Or anyone have some nice used ones?

    I do believe that the bottom two-thirds are the same as the two-door Plymouth inner and outer wheel houses the top part you will either have to fabricate metal and or repair or find a nice used top cap they do not make that section that I am aware of

      As stated above the bottom are the same coupe and convertible. I had damage on my upper that could only be repaired. Cut the AMD reproduction wheelhouse apart and rebuilt it. A0504C38-AE8D-4114-B886-961488589793.jpeg

        My left wheelhouse was hacked up by a PO, needed total replacement. As mentioned, no repros for convertibles. My repair took place before repro hardtop wheelhouses were available. Mine was also missing the brace which goes from the wheelhouse cap to the trunk lid surround lip. I was able to find a 70 Satellite donor in a boneyard for the wheelhouse. Was lucky to find a guy parting a 68B convertible to get the wheelhouse cap and brace. I believe any 66-70B body convertible can be a donor. Hopefully the caps on your friends car are OK, because these are approaching unobtainium.

        The caps were totally gone-rust. There were 5 raccoons living in the car when we went to look at it. Hence all of the rust. It's a 69 Sport Satellite convert with a HP383 and a 4 speed. Pretty near car!. It has electric windows too.
