    Hello and happy Wednesday good folks. Does anyone know if the Outer Wheelhouse are the same for 67-69 Valiants and Darts? The part in question is this one, from Classic Industries:

    Classic Ind says it fits 67-76 Darts and Valiants but AMD says 1967 - 1976 Dodge Dart and 1971 - 1976 Plymouth Scamp, and YearOne says 1967 - 1976 Dodge Dart only. I believe they're all the same part made by AMD. I believe the parts book shows different numbers for Darts and Valiants. Any thoughts? I need a LH Outer Wheel housing for a 67 Valiant. Yours in wonderment.

    The quarter panels are slightly different and maybe the wheel opening. Can they be made to work?

    Thanks Alan. Yeah the quarter panels have a different wheel opening lip and may have a slightly different contour, not sure. I haven't purchased anything yet. I'm trying to decide what path to take, OEM used or a, it might not, fit repro! I wasn't even 67% or 69% confidence that this would match up so I thought I'd throw it up to the Mopar powers greater than myself!

    Depending on the portion you need you might be able to graft in what you need, problem is you probably need the wheel lip opening.

    Thanks Alan. Yeah, I primarily need the wheel lip opening area and the profile is a little different. Hunting down a used outer wheelhouse might be the way to go. The journey continues!

    Valiants have their own outer wheelhouse. Not the same as Dart. No outer wheelhouses are available for Valiants.
    FYI, 67-69 Barracudas and 70-76 Dusters/Demon/ Dart Sports use the same outer wheelhouse.

    Thanks FM3, for the unequivocal response! That's good information. That's what I thought but I wasn't sure. I appreciate you chiming in.
