Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
You may consider buying our grade "B" door over our grade "A" door if you are doing a high end restoration. Here is the reasoning; due to the design of the 67-68 door, silt is trapped in all of the door corners, these tight recesses always have silt collected in them and when you add moisture you get corrosion. Our grade "A" doors do not have noticeable blisters but since there is no paint or sound deadener in the depths of the corners we know there is some amount of corrosion taking place that may "blister" in the future. We suggest buying a grade "B" door with minor blisters in the corners so you can clean out this area 100%, weld in a small patch, fill it with a product like POR-15 and never worry about it blistering your $10000 paint job in the future. Our Grade "B" doors do not have rust through in the shell, just the skin. We probe aggressively with an awl under the weatherstrip and all along the bottom seam where they will often expand with rust. Grade B doors have multiple dings, small dents and potentially some filler from previous work. Since this is an expensive item with damage we are willing to send pictures prior to us shipping out your door. Sometimes we have to adjust the price up or down depending on the level of damage present.
NOTE! The pictures shown here are file photos from doors we have sold in the past and is not the actual door or color you will receive. Please email or call for current conditions of stock on hand.
