    $A580 each plus freight

    Ghee, for that price I'd be happy to buy them, especially if they were a correct fit on first fitting. Or maybe, I'm just getting soft as I get older. They would save a lot of time and heart ache.

    Have you priced modern car panels Rob?

    I think thats pretty good for low production number spare parts.

    Have a look at our home grown car rust replacement panel prices

    Yeah 1/2 to 2/3 the price, and around the same for more complex pressings.

    And no freight to be added - the killer for overseas bulky items

    I'm afraid my restoration budget is too constrained for repro panels of this ilk, if that is typical pricing.

    Its all about the number of panels produced (scale of economies). The guys that are producing the rust panels know doubt bought the old tooling and are trying to get back the money they have invested and make a living out of small production runs.

    I agree about the freight from overseas (especially France) is a killer. One way to soften the blow with freight is to incorporate your resto with an overseas trip and bring back you spare parts in your check in luggage.

    Yes, that's a for sure, never seen the markings on any sedan longeron panels though, early or late, just L/CL, U6/C5 types. U4 and U8/C8 both seem to have their own individual part Nos. for that particular section.

    thanks for that lo203404
    while on this topic, does anyone know if the familiale (L) had wider box sections, as per the soft-tops? A couple of the few photos i have found show a squared-off tunnel, too.

    Think carefully about the time it would take to make these panels by hand - not mention the jury rig tooling required. For the achievable results they look like a bargain to me - even with the freight.

    No, the familiale/commerciale has the same width section as the sedan. The difference is the overall length - achieved by welding additional sections to the rear of the sedan pressings.

    further illustration of above discussed - the extensions:
    N.B. this knowledge shared from Amoureux, without asking:
    'Pascal51' to 'Chips'
    "...
    La familiale et la commerciale (203L et 203CL, L pour longue) ont donc des longerons intérieurs rallongés.
    Qu'en est-il des extérieurs.Tu as une photo des morceaux tronçonnés à nous montrer ?
    Les longerons que je t'ai fourni sont aux cotes usine mais je peux les fabriquer à la longueur qui te convient sans souder une rallonge.
    ..."

    Hi


    Did anyone by chance keep the name of the company who was advertising these panels. I sent them an email (via the lebocoin email system, so no tracking...), but never heard back. Now the link has gone down. I was going to ask a friend in France to follow them up for me....

    If anyone has the name, would you please forward it onto me.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Once, patching metal resembling doilie-paper made Gal 'C'-section roof purlins sound good.

    Ask for ex VAT price from France as it is an export. 20% less please

    At $580 each plus freight, Healey Factory becomes a cheaper option

    Sure - if big Healeys had used a Peugeot platform (like future Vauxhall), however ...
    I sought attention, lest it was missed by anyone interested, for new part availability in the state of origin.
    This does indeed follow various British Motor Heritage, Jaguar-Rover, Daimler-Benz, etc., factory efforts and third parties (some with sanction/blessing) pressing requisite components for Porsches in Canada, Jags in New Zealand and probably even Astons in Melbourne. I recall another british sports car similarly serviced by someone round Ballarat but specifics elude me. Waddingtons in Castlemaine could make whole Fords in steel years ago, too.

    Aha

    I missed that page of the parts book. Looks like the panels together with the jump seats form a load platform. Not structural but probably handy to carry a barrel of vin ordinaire or several hundred baguettes.
