I'll have some reproduction steel Daytona nose cones available soon.

Along with a few other steel reproduction Wing Car parts.

As some of you know, Gean Gregory, a long time maker of Daytona, Superbird, Challenger and  'Cuda parts - is in the process of retiring.

Recently, I bought out his remaining inventory of wing car parts.

Watch the "parts for sale" section of DC.com.

I'll post parts for sale there as they become available.

In the mean time, here's a picture:

No,

 When I asked Gean about the dies, I was informed that they no longer exist.

Apparently,  Kirksite has a fairly high scrap value.  scratchchin

When I talked to him on the phone he told me the same thing. You must have beat me to his noses. He told me they was sold out.

I'm going to see if there's any interest in the nose cones being sold as a kit to be assembled by the buyer or their restoration shop.

This will allow custom fitting the nose to your car.

Currently in the "Parts and accessories for sale" section:

So what about superbird fender exstentions in metal? If you can make the cone and all the other parts and a rear plug.. IS there a reason you cant make those??

Doubled Over,

Quoting myself from the first post of this thread:


"As some of you know, Gean Gregory, a long time maker of Daytona, Superbird, Challenger and  'Cuda parts - is in the process of retiring.

Recently, I bought out his remaining inventory of wing car parts."


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So, as you can see, I did NOT make the nose cones, or any of the other parts I got from Gean Gregory.


I did however, make the window plug and a few other parts for my own car.

I consider myself to be a half way decent fabricator, and I may decide to make some parts for Daytonas and Superbirds after I retire from my everyday job.

Maybe not.

It's a very small market and there are other, well established, much more talented than myself, fabricators out there.

In the mean time,

I have no plans of tooling up and making Superbird fender extensions.


You seem to have a strong interest in these parts.

IS there a reason why YOU can't spend YOUR time and money tooling up to make Superbird fender extensions ?  shruggy


Thanks for your interest.  cheers

well. first off. I accidently made the s in is a capital. I didnt let go of the shift button quick enough when typing that out. Sorry. But I dont see a reason or need to mock me for that at the end of your answer. Second. I do know you made some things for yourself. And i have seen others asking for those same parts in the past. And since you bought out gene and have made things before. It would seem you would be the man that would most likely have the money and know how to do it. Before someone like me could. I think most guys on here or anywere for that matter, if they went somewere and asked something and got an answer like that. "how about you do it" I think thats a message to take any and all buissness somewere else. which i will. All i asked was is there a reason why not? Instead of just saying well yea. Its not cost effective. Or its to much work. Or even i really cant do that in particular. Then i would know and understand. Gene was never nasty like that. whats his name down in atlanta was never ever like that. ( i miss him) So no worries i get the hint.
