TJ, as in Tedrick Janek?, if so Ted's nose is fiberglass, not steel, I'll assume the OP wants a "factory" style steel replacement nose or panels to repair his existing nosecone...hence Gene Gregory

No potmetal repros, and originals are scarce, IIRC the current fiberglass ones on the market have no provision to bolt on, they are "bond-on", my repros are fiberglass, and have provisions to bolt them on as original with 2 studs and 2 screws per piece if your interested?

I put a lot of Ted Janek parts on my clone. But this one I want to keep steel. If I could replace the bottom center it would be a nice nose. I think I got a hook on a bottom center section. Thanks folks....

Seats are brittle but very nice. Shame, I don't think they will last long without ripping.

Car has not been PA inspected since 1976. Guy I bought the car from drove it very little when a young man. Parked it in PA weather for 5 years then sent it to uncle in Fort Myers FLA. At this time nose cone is getting pretty bad. Trunk floor has some issues. Uncle was not a restoration expert and decided to spray bomb the car to "preserve" it. Whole car is brown rustolem primered. Found 4 rusted spray cans in trunk.


Okay, I was wrong! Imagine that! I just spoke to the original owner of the car. His father bought the car from a Plymouth dealer in Etna, PA called Krebs and King. The license plate frame on my car still has the name on it. He sold it to the man I bought it from due to health issues. I'm gonna do some research on KREBS and KING.


Krebs and King was right on Rt 8 in Etna for years, still exists in a new location as Krebs Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, still on Rt 8, but farther north in Gibsonia PA. They used to have a swap meet every spring at the dealership

Hey Bullit, You got it. I thought that the car came from Eau Claire PA. Till I talked to the original owner. He will be coming up this week to see the car with his 88 year old MOM. He was a young kid and saw the yellow bird in the showroom at Krebs and King and told his Dad about it. They bought it that day off of the owners son, Mark KING JR.

Yeah, I guess yellow was the care for this area. Guess it didn't show dirt as much as the darker colors. LOL
