Center valance

Recommended Posts

hey everyone,

Anybody have any ideas on where I can get a new front valance for a 72z? I am willing to buy either a steel or fiberglass one. Also, I have noticed that some early z car valances had a narrow lip and some had a wider one. Whats the difference?

Are you talking about this part?

My microfiche says it's part 62600-E4100, now F2600-E4100 & if available they're $130 or so.

Regarding the difference in the two, I can't speak from experience because I'm most familiar with my '72. But the part number changed in 7/72. Could the ones you're referring to be for the '73, thus different? I didn't think they moved the turn signal lenses above the bumper until '74 but that's honestly a guess.

FWIW...

Unless yours is severely mangled you should be able to save it. Mine got ran over/stepped on a few times. A little hammer&dolly and less than 1/16 skim coat of filler is all it took. (One hour total time) I was wanting to replace it but decided the money could be spent in more important areas. This is an easy part to fix because it is relatively flat.

yes that is the part I am talking about. This past summer I attended the South Florida Z-fest and saw both types on some of the 240's there. By the way I also saw a fiberglass one there. Thanks for the input though.
