67 sport sedan C pillar patches

Hullo all...
In the course of my project I've removed the vinyl top and found rust (not too surprised...I hate vinyl tops for this reason). It's been patched before but the vinyl top just kept the moisture there and it rusted away. There's a few spots that are rusted through and I was wondering off of what other models I can cut patch panels...1967 and 1968? Will the curves in the area where the C-pillar meets the rest of the rear quarters be the same between hardtop models?
the rest of the body is remarkably straight so I won't need the whole quarter, just the area mentioned above

Sorry...tried a few times with the tablet at home and I just couldn't get it to work...had some down time at work and got it to post up a pic...I sprayed some rust prevention rattle can stuff on it (which is the black stuff). But I was wondering about what other models will match the metal contours between the body line and th glass...

I just cut a quarter panel off a 66 4 door Caprice, It looks very similar in that area. I see no reason you couldn't use metal from a 65-70 4 door sport sedan.

would the curves match in any other body style?...like any of the 2 door models, by chance? Those are much easier to find and cheaper when you do.
I don't think I need the whole C-pillar, just a few patch panels to remove the rust so I'm mostly concerned with the curves/angles, not the distances between landmarks...
I checked craigslist and there's not even a coupe to measure that's less than an hours drive right now

No wrecking yards? Old cars sitting around in neighborhood?
