It would be for a 64 cdv

If DVAP can sell you a nice for 600USD including shipping it doesn't sound to bad. Its a 53 year old car...

Make sure the metal under the lower lip trim is solid. The trim has a sort of wide band and often covers this common rot area underneath. I have a very solid, straight 64 de Ville deck lid, but it is tentatively sold. Shoot me an email to jasonedge@nc.rr.com and I can put you on my Wait List.  My price is usually about $150 for a good solid straight deck lid. Due to size, you would have to pick up or arrange transport.

Thanks guys and Jason I sent you a wait list request back on the 3rd of February so I sould be on it somewhere already lol. I was mainly seeing if anyone has one yet. Ill keep saving to the 600 mark. Jason if you would please keep me in the loop on the one you have and if it comes avalible email me please through the site inbox as my wife is not the best on letting me know on when I get an email.

Tim, I checked the Wait List and you are there. I start getting a blast of emails from everyone for parts Feb & March and hard to remember who has contacted me. As I like to say "I forget everything...but Excel remembers everything!"

Sweet good to know im there and I like that last line btw. If you dont mind me asking but on average how long does it typically take to go through the wait list,
im new to all this stuff so im curious on how the process works with so many people asking for parts etc.

Tim, It depends on the part. I have some items I only have 1 other person on the Wait List and might be a recent add. I have some very in demand items where I might have say 16 to 20 people on the Wait List spanning back 7 years. I checked the 64 deck lids and have 8 customers on the Wait List spanning back to Feb 2015. Here is the break down of adds: I have 5 customers added in 2015,  then 2 in 2016, and you are the one I have added in 2017.  Sometimes customers that have been on the list a while have already found the part or have sold the car, but I never take anyone off the list until I confirm or cannot get a response once I have something available. So, my best guess assuming I bring in 3 to 4 in the next 3 years, but factoring out a few people that already found or don't need a deck lid, would be about 2 years. I just put 2 bumper ends in the hands of customers that had been waiting 5 years! If you are ready to restore right now, that is probably not good news, but if you are doing the long gradual restore like I am with my 64 CDV 2 years is a drop in the bucket!  All a matter of perspective! :-)

Thats actually pretty interesting how the math all plays out. Only reason im in such a rush on trying to find one is because i just completely replaced the trunk pan and im putting mine together out in the elements. (Wife just had to pick the house with no garage or storage lol). Main point is I just dont want the rains wiping out my new pan. Welcome to Florida where if its not cook your family jewels hot its turentually downpouring or some other bi-polar weather. Sadly I still need front and rear bumper at least the center for the rear and a whole front, a good hood, a new winsheild thanks to an old roommate, and of course the trunk.
But its a budget build so looks like im in for a long haul.
Tim
