Hi all,I'm planning a complete ground up rebuild of my 1972 Monte Carlo. Since no one seems to sale first gen rear inner and outer wheel wells, does anyone have any suggestions on how to over come this, mine are rusted out. I had heard the 67 Chevelle or 67/68 Impala are the way to go....is this true? Any information is greatly appreicated!

Sam is right, the inners are the same. For the outers most (including myself) have used the Chevelle as well but they need to be heavily modified.

So I take it that 67 Chevelle are not the way to go and I should buy the 70-72 wheel wells?

That's Leo for you new guys. His number is posted in the "Parts Sources" on the main page. He does the most restorations out of all of us. Not only can he tell you what year and what modifications...he can also sell you the parts. Give him a call.
