      No....they will not work on a '66 Barracuda or Valiant. Those are one year only pieces.

        WOW! Is right ! Wish I had a nickel for every person whom asked me where to find a decent pair. Those concert cars of the 60's really got around!

        Rick,

        How about letting us know what 66' would take to make and see if we can get a buying circle together.
        they are needed badly around here.

        Well........

        It'd take about $40,000.....UP FRONT......to cover the cost of tooling and the cost of the initial production run for approx. 80 pairs....

        .....and then we'd have to sell 80 pairs just to get back close to what our initial investment was. And while the first 10 or 20 pairs might sell pretty quickly, who knows how long it would take to sell the rest to get back close to that break-even point.

        If it wasn't just a one year only part, it'd be a little easier to lay out that kinda cash to get started.

        No...the bezels posted in this thread are 63-65 Valiant/64-65 Barracuda ONLY.

        The second production run of the 63-64 Dart head light trim rings is still in progress.....

          Hi Rick,
          Wow! Hope you don't mind but I have posted the link to this thread on the Australian AP5-AP6-VC Valiant Facebook page, which I expect will create a fair bit of excitement!

          I thought a place in Oz made fiberglass ones....? But these are about as pretty as they get.

            Since I the link to this thread on the Australian AP5-AP6-VC Valiant page on Facebook, I received a reply which had details for an Australian company who makes aluminuim ones, (photo below from advert) likely to be the suppliers to Laysons. They sell on Gumtree via this link https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http...mMI8a9JSbsK2T27hLy-WxnACSbhZoJe4pe10LDKMPi-N8

            Or email them at autopartsplusoz@gmail.com

            No those are different. Notice the finish (polished?) and the depth of the screw holes (unless that's an illusion, those look deeper) also there seems to be no defined step on the inside rim? Good option though if your over there or want to spend $50 US more on top of shipping to here?

              Quite a few guys over here replied to my Facebook post, they swear by these ones and reckon the quality and finish is perfect! I guess we now have a choice!

              Apparently, according to those who have seen them, the ones sold by Layson's are lighter gauge than the original, and the ones made by Morris are heavier gauge...

              Yes, the original stamped AL OEM's are pretty light in gauge. Painfully obvious when you see all the stone dings in used original ones out there.
