Back in the day they would use 39 Chevrolet tail light housings... I think you could make a filler part from exhaust pipe... Later, Dave

I think you will have to fabricate this yourself. I have seen them done in various show cars over the years and they are all fabricated.

It might be worth purchasing this book detailing Boyd Coddington's build of the Chubster.

Not to hijack your thread, but how about going the other way? On the latest edition of the Jegs catalog it shows a nice "57 with the rockets deleted but filled in with a chrome piece that i think looks awesome. Is that something that I need to fab or does someone make it? I suppose if i have to fab it i need to get some stainless exhaust and start makin' it. No problem.
