5. Sal Perez at American Musclecars saw a glimpse of potential in the '69 when installing the new quarters, so he offered to help install new front sheetmetal if I could come up with the parts. Again, Goodmark came to the rescue with a pair of freshly tooled '69 fenders, produced with heavier-gauge steel than earlier replacements. One fender was original, while the other had been replaced in 1986 and was subsequently nailed by a drunk driver. The Goodmark fenders were complemented with new upper and lower valence panels, along with a reproduction steel cowl-induction hood to replace the GM piece that had once become airborne and still had the scars to prove it. The crew at American Musclecars took the time to get the new stuff to line up properly.
