'65 front inner fender wells.

Hi All,

I have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I need to replace my front inner fender wells but I cannot find any replacements. I can find inner's for '66-'67 but not for '65.

Will a '66 front inner fender well fit on my '65? Any help would be very appreciated.

Joe.

Not sure, but probably not, or they would be listed as such. I would think a '64 inner fender would be a better bet, but again, not 100%. Have you tried Hemmings Motor News or Pontiac Heaven?

Haven't tried Hemmings or Pontiac heaven yet, but I did find two or three restoration blogs of guy's who did end up using '66 inner fender wells for their '65 restorations. I only need the front inner wells, my back wheelhouse fenders are in great shape.

They said that '66 will fit no problem on a '65, even a '67 will fit, it will have a indent for where the power brake booster sits, to give more room. I will probably order the '66 fender wells, they look exactly like my old ones, minus the rot. If I can't use them, I know a few guy's up here that have '66's, so I can probably sell them pretty easy.

Thanks geeteeohguy for your input, I really appreciate it.

Thanks crustysack, I ordered the inner fender wells from OPGI, they came in last week and I installed them yesterday. They are the exact same size as my original fender wells.

The only hard part was installing the new A arm splash shields, front and rear well seals. Those staples are on PITA.

So if anyone needs to replace their '65 front inner wheel wells, you can use the wells from a '66 - '67, as the line up and fit very well.

Would you happen to have the OPGI part number? I can't seem to find them on the OPGI website.

Thanks,

Thanks very much Joe. This is what I need for my '64. If they fit your '65 then they should also fit my '64.
