  • Radiator seal

    At some point, my 60 2 door with air must have had a shield of some type that attached to the body, vertically on both the left and right side of the radiator. Whatever it was is broken off leaving a rough edge that is attached to the body by a black vertical piece about 3/8 inch wide with screws. Does anybody know what this is and if so does any supplier carry them?

      The side radiator deflector rubber parts are reproduce. The metal parts you need to get used.

        Bird Nest has them for $3.95 for the pair.

            If you cannot get it from a vendor, I see these on e-Bay often.

                  Jon:

                  If you can't find them used, I can trace the left one from mine and send it to you by mail when my car gets back.

                  The things are only thin sheet metal, about 2.5" wide with some holes in it for the screws. You can make it easily, and it gets painted black.
