new here with sheetmetal questions

Hi Im from Holland and currently restoring a 1966 ltd fastback with 390

I am in dire need of sheetmetal (floorpans and trunkpanel). I am already a member of the galaxie club and have bought their parts locater guide. Unfortunately most businesses are mentioned with their phone nr only. As you might know calling from Europe to USA is not very economical at all.

If any of you guys know the right place for these panels please advise?

Does the 66 galaxie have the same floor pan as any of the other full size models like the fairlane? Maybe I can use these. Maybe the floor is the same for other models galaxie build in other years?

I have already tried most of the bigger online companies like dearborn but they dont carry them.

I would really appreciate any help

oh yeah and I tried a lot of junkyards and they charge about USD 250 per piece ex shipping

Try Dearborn Classics. Order their catalog, it seems to have a lot more parts than their online locator.

Ford Ranchero, Ford Falcon, Ford Fairlane, Ford Torino, Mercury Comet, and Mercury Montego Parts Online

They do sell floorpans, although I'm not sure which which models and years.
Good luck!
