64 Galaxie quarter panels

Hey everyone new to the forum love the site and have a problem.

I started sanding down the q panels on my 64xl hardtop because there were bubbles in the paint. What I found underneath were rust through spots in multiple places. i think its just the outside panel nothing in the trunk. Does anyone know if there are reproduction panels or do i have to a good car and cut?

Also the bottom corners of the back window are getting pretty bad. I havent taken the glass out yet so i dont know if its rusted through yet but if it isnt whould the old school lead filling be worth the hassle if there arent repros?

Thanks

Re: 64 Galaxie quarter panels

What is your general location? I was told of a '64 at the car show yesterday but need to go look at it yet to see what it looks like. It is in the Tacoma WA area.

Re: 64 Galaxie quarter panels

I'm in the Memphis area. Thanks for all the posts. Once I got to sanding the bondo was at least a quarter inch thick in certain areas. Once i get a place its cutting time.

Has anyone had the problem of the inner quarter panel rusting out. A lot of crap had built up in that slot on the sides in the trunk so its rusting out aswell.

I believe the rear inner is available also but it can be fabricated.

Re: 64 Galaxie quarter panels

Nice thing bout the inner is it can't be seen and is relatively flat. Probably a common area to rust when the drain holes are covered up so water can't get out.
