I am in the middle of my restoration (seems more like the beginning Wink).  I finally got the car out of final paint and am having a great time putting all the goodies back on the car.  My front valance is a '67 RS valance. (looks same as the '68, but no flange to mount the front parkng lights.)  Since this is my first '67 I am taking it slow and learning about the '67 realizing that I am missing the valance brackets.  I found them in many catalogs and even have some original ones available here locally.  My question is...how are they mounted to the valance.  welded?  or just as a backing?  Any ideas on this one? 


At least on my '69 the parking lights were a little easier.  Grin

thanks for any help

put the parking lights in place then install the brackets over the studs of the parking lights from the back and secure them with the nuts. the backets pinch(for lack of a better word) the valance between the body of the lamp and bracket thus securing the assembly. hope this helps

makes sense..... I think I got it.  ..........light-valance-bracket-nut.  anyone have a pic handy? 

Now for the $64,000.00 question...... did it get body color paint or what color are they supposed to be to be correct? 

BTW thanks Tinkerr

Do you have the '67 Assembly Manual?? (AIM)
Order one if not. It's a must have if your reassembling.

Yes, I do have the AIM and it is extremly helpful but some of the part shops are showing a different style bracket. More of a L shape. 


I would be lost without the AIM....

Mine are shaped just like the ones in the drawing.
Rick's First-Gen has them but his picture on his web site is a bad angle.
They don't look correct but they are.
They are asymmetrical, left and right, pieces.
