68 quarter panel modification

First off, I need to know will the lower quarter panel off the 66 impala fit the 68 impala? I know the top arch is different but what about the lower section? I ask because I cannot find the full lower section of the 68 quarter anywhere, they seem to come in 2 pieces that cost double the amount of the full 66 quarter and that's just ridiculous.

We have a 67 in about the same shape. The 66 stuff wont work, its totally different. Probably better off making your own small patch panels.

have access to a 68 four door sedan parts car. don't know if lower rear quarter areas would be the same as your fastback.

It would work as a patch panel if you cut up the pieces small enough to weld on to your two door.

68 lower quarter rear panels and drop offs

these are the 68 sedan lower quarters and drop offs. not great but might work on your car. let me know if you want to work with these. frankly dont know if the distance from the rear wheel house to the tail pan is the same on your fastback and the four door sedan.
