I am hoping to replace the entire front nose on my 1966 Barracuda with a fiberglass one piece unit. My problem is the 1966 is a single year car and I cannot find any one that makes it. They make them for 1964 and 65 and then also for 67 and 68. I know the front grill and bumper and such are different but I was wondering if the 65 or 67 would bolt on anyway with not too much modification. In other words it would still be a 66 but with a 67 or 65 nose. Any suggestions ideas or possible source where I can have that done.

Others will chime in I am sure, but I think the 65 will bolt up. The 67 and up front is wider among other differences.

64, 65 and 66 (not sure about 63) "A" body (valiant, dart, cuda) complete front clip (sheet metal from the cowl foward), is interchangeable. 67 up will not work.

Glory days has no products for the pre -67 a bodies.. according to their listing. Unless you can call them ang get a custom mold made up somehow.

They make a lot of stuff, best to call.
I think they list a Colt one piece front end, but they made my hood.
From what I understand they have a lot of molds.

I know this is old, but Glasstech makes all the front end parts for a 66 Valiant individually. Dash and Doors as well. They may make you a one piece one.

Quality on my trunk lid from them was nice.

If I ain’t mistaken(which I usually is), I think Charlie still has my 64-66 Valiant race car project with a one piece fiberglass 66 front end. I just ain’t got around to go gittin’ it yet… Ain’t that right, Charlie…? :mrgreen:

Car is a 64 Signet. Has frame connectors, and rear springs moved inboard. Have 66 Cuda one piece tilt nose, with wheel openings moved forward to the front bumper (altered wheelbase). Have fiberglass doors, and 66 Cuda deck lid (does not fit Valiant). Also have a roll cage kit for the car. I'll never get to build it. It is an extensive project.

Wonder what company built your front end kit?

It's possible it's home made.

Buddy of mine did Buick parts in his garage back in the 80s.
