Find someone parting out a car like yours. Once everything is sold, try to buy whats left. Usually a good firewall.

"East". HA HA Next time you want a better answer give some information, the more the better. The year is good. Whether you have an A/C or non A/C car is important cause the firewalls are different.

No one makes replacement firewalls for any car. Your only option is to find a car being parted out with a firewall better than yours.

Back in my racing days we use to cut the firewalls out of Camaro's and Nova's and build our own out of a flat piece of sheet metal. Or cover it with a flat sheet of polished aluminum.
Just curious? Whats the problem with your firewall?

68 firewall

this is a 68 sedan with air conditioning firewall. Very rock solid shape, only rust was at base of the windsheild - where wet sand was trapped under chrome reveal moulding.
