Auto Metal Direct prides itself on being a one-stop source for high-quality body panels — even the most difficult to find vintage car metal panels. The most recent product that is slated to hit the market any day now is an all-new reproduction of the ’69 Camaro quarter panels.
The ’69 Camaros have been called the most popular muscle car of all time by some in the industry. This is probably due to the long production year of the new body style Camaro. Rumors maintain the ’69’s long production year was due to a factory strike at certain GM plants. In reality, it was because the 1970 model Camaro production was delayed for manufacturing difficulties. Ironically, the cause of the delay was failures in the 1970 Camaro quarter panel dies. The factory had problems pressing the panels without wrinkles and splits.
Saving Time In Finishing
The sheer volume of Camaros produced in 1969 makes it one of the most prolific of the time. Aiming to solve a shortage of available panels for some hard-to-find body areas, AMD re-tooled its production to offer premium quarter panels for the ’69 Camaro. These new premium versions will save enthusiasts hours of time in fit and finish.
AMD focused on areas that have troubled these quarter panel reproductions in the past. The door gap, the tail panel seams, the deck filler, and the deck lid intersection are some of the areas that have been perfected. This is a GM Official Licensed Restoration Part
Stamped from high-quality OE-gauge steel on exclusive new tools, each quarter panel features the correct original shape, size, bends, curves, and body lines. Like all AMD parts, these items arrive EDP coated to help protect against rust and corrosion prior to installation.
