I figured it was a restamp.

The date code is right for mine.

What's a fair value to pay for it? Seller is asking 850 for it

General Discussion / Opinion on 1100814 Alternator stamp

Been looking for an 814 alternator and found this one.

Do the stampings look good on this?

Does this look like a real deal or a good restamp?

Mine a 68 so it's got the satin finish.

I'm not too worried about the finish right now because if I buy these, they will have to be redone anyway.
It's more the fitting of the molding.

I saw the other post already.

When you look at the 67 aftermarket where the end piece is welded on, it's not a nice fit. And the first picture i posted has the same crappy look to it. . But is doesn't have the messy spot weld marks. That's why I'm not sure.

Do factory ones look like that, or are boths end nice clean looking with no gaps where the ends are welded on?

I have to change my header moldings.
Mine are rotted out and beyond any repair.

From what I understand, the aftermarket ones have some fitting issues.

I found a set of originals on ebay that need to be redone:

Do these look original  or are they aftermarket? Is there an easy way to tell if there are no markings?

I had him send me pics of the ends, but I don't know enough about these to tell.

I'd prefer to go with original GM due to the fact it's an L78 car

Restoration / 1968 Convertible Quarter Panel Questions
« on: July 25, 2016, 04:27:35 PM »
I've got a 68 L78 convertible that I've owned for the last 30 years. Before I got it, someone did the body and put patch panels on it with lots of filler. At the time I was 18 and didn't care. The car has been parked for the last 20 years.

But now I would like to get the car redone properly with full panels.
I do have a complete brand new NOS front clip (less hood) that I bought at GM over the years before it was all discontinued.

What's the best panels to get now? I've looked for NOS, but can only find coupes available.

From what I'm reading, AMD is the best manufacturer of sheet metal, but they only produce hardtop.
The convertible panel is the X-Line which is not made by them, so they are probably Goodmark or Dynacorn supplied.

I can get Goodmark panels through work, but I don't know how good the quality is on them.

All the posts I find about quality issues and the best panels are all years old, and everyone has different opinions.
Has anyone put these panels on a convertible, and if so, what was the fit like?

Would I be safe going with Goodmark over Dynacorn?

As a last resort, my only other option is to pick up a set of NOS coupe panels and cut the sails off.

Any advice appreciated
