Red face Suitable Donor Car...

Hi Guys:

I am gearing up to restore my 74 T/A.

The car was repainted over ten years ago and it is starting to come thru the doors, quarters, and front fenders.

If I intend of replacing the sheet metal with aftermarket pieces for the quarters and fenders, what would be a suitable donor car I could use for the doors and misc pieces I may or may not need?

Could I use any f-body from 70-81 or would it specifically have to be like a 74-76 pontiac?

I have found a few rolling shells for sale in the area but I was wondering if anything would fit a 74.

Thanks!

A true '74 would be great but I'm scared it will be nicer than the one I got!

Only kidding - I will check into this...

Thanks!

No doubt brother!

I'm thinkin that once I get into it, I'm gonna need more pieces than just the panels.

I'm hopin to do the restore before I turn 40 so I got a little time to get everything together.

In the meantime, lemme know if you see any 74's for sale.

Thanks!
