Sorry for such a n00b question, but I'm still kind of fuzzy on which parts are interchangeable across which years and which body types, et al.

I found a right side lower quarter panel for a 57 Belvedere 4dr. Would that fit a 58?

Thanks!

The lower rear section should fit but of course the 57 and 58 holes for the body moldings are different so you would need to weld up and redrill for whichever car you have. so long as its a 4 door sedan qtr like yours it should be ok.

Thanks for the info! The parts look identical as near as I can tell.

The primary difference to me is that I can locate a couple 57s. No luck at all with a 58 though. Some have said it's the same part, others say it's totally different. :/

i agree with Jase that it is the same but the molding trim holes will have a slightly different location

I think the only parts that dont really "interchange" are the fenders (different headlight buckets) and the stone pans up front. Obviously models dont interchange like 4 door hardtops to 4 door sedan quarters and coupe quarters or doors to sedan doors and quarters etc...

The stamping itself is definitely the same, if an aftermarket panel, it will probably have no trim holes anyways. Be sure to check the fit if aftermarket, I have seen some that are a ways off from a good match.

I've seen a few "57-58 All models" aftermarket panels in a couple places. Black Car, eBay, et al.

Are they to be avoided?

I used a lower quarter from a 4 dr on my 2 dr, and they matched up fine.

I got the quarter from Big M. Worked perfect. If you are doing the rockers, get the extra long ones that are available.
