Package Shelf

Hi Y’all
Finally getting to my project. The package shelf is pretty much toast. Any ideas on where to buy a new one or a good cut out from a junk yard?
Thanks
Perry

I believe a company called REM makes them. The new ones aren't very costly but the shipping may get you.

If you're not that worried about 100% original, you can make one pretty easily. That's what I did on my '69. I used the old one as a template, cut a new one out of a thin piece of masonite, added oval cutouts for the rear sound system speakers I'm using, then covered the whole thing in a relatively fine mesh black speaker grille cloth. It looks very good.

Thanks for the replies. I need to be more specific. What I need is the metal that creates the package shelf along with the bracing down to the floorpan. The big Sheetmetal Sellers don’t have a replacement. I was also wondering if the metal package shelf from a 1967 Chevelle would work?

Had this issue with a 69 gto a few years ago. If nothing has changed which I don't think it has you will not find a direct replacement . Just not made for gto . Why I don't know. But I can tell you the Chevelle is snd is very close and are sold . Best luck . Finding a used good one is like finding a neddle in a hay stack Doug

Thanks for all the replies. I have talked to all the junkyards that sell Pontiac parts. So far no luck. I might try Doug’s idea and modify the 67 Chevelle package tray. I’m still open to any and all ideas out there. Thanks again, Perry

I search every where when we did the 69. They are just not out there or you will find it's as bad as yours or worse . Once in you can't see it except getting in trunk and looking at it . Unless your doing a # 1 Concourse car the Chevelle is the fix and many have used . Good luck Doug
