Looking for a shroud for a 74 Century, Luxus trim, 350 engine. Thanks for your time!
There just MAY be one at a local yard, but access is really tough, as the access road was washed out at a bridge, and one must take about a 12-15 mile detour between the yard and the main shop he works out of. I know that it was either a 73 or 74 LUXUS, as I thought it said LEXUS. Possibly still standing in water! Lots of rain since Hurricane Florence doesn't help. (I have another member waiting for parts from that same area...
I have one,it came out of a 73,its for a 350,in fair condition.Bruno.
Cool, how much do you want for it? I'm in Nashville, TN. .
I'll have to look at it again>Let you know by this afternoon,I hope.Bruno.
Its all there,but the plastic does not look that good.Also the bottle for the antifreeze has a crack in it and the 2 covers for the windshield washer and the antifreeze are missing.Bruno.
Well,I did check it out,but maybe I better get you a picture of it,so that you can judge it yourself.Bruno.
Okay, I'll take a look at the pictures when you get them. Thanks!
Hi Chrisk,these are the pictures of the shroud.As you can see its mostly OK only bad part is a crack where the antefreze goes in.But now day's you can use the rubber molding that will seal no problem.In case you are interested,all I want for this is $30.00 plus actual shipping.Let me know what you decide.Bruno.
Okay, how much do you want for shipping? I'm in Madison, TN. thanks
Please see my other question. If you have any of the parts in that question, i would be glad to buy them

Can't help you with those parts,when I had the car there's was no call for those parts,so I junk it after taking the motor and trainy out.Had the same car in a Big block,did the same thing.Will let you know what shipping is,after I package it.This is going to take a big box,so shipping is not going to be cheap,but you will pay only that amount.Bruno.
Again, the bridge is out, and we have had so much rain since Hurricane Florence (18 out of 24 weekends have been rained out...), I haven't been over there to THAT yard because of the detour required. There are several 73-76 Century'sin BOTH of his yards, but only one was a LUXUS, which is in the big detour yard. Most of the Centuries had a/c as best I recall. I imagine that they all A bodies of that era used the same A/C box, just different faceplates for that model.
Ok well let me know if you ever do get a chance to go and come by the parts I need, I'm interested in buying them. Guess I should also mention that I'm also looking for a firewall heater box (with AC), firewall evaporator box, the ductwork and the front one piece grill for this same car (74 Century Luxus).
Let me know how much it will be with shipping (the shroud), I live in Madison, TN 37115-4708
Hi Chrisk,just send me $60.00,if the shipping comes to more then $5.00,you then send me the difference,the other way ,if under $25,00 ,I will send you the differents.If you agree,send a check or MO to: Bruno Di Paola,279 Division Ave,Hicksville,NY.11801.Bruno.

Also, make sure to put fragile on the packaging when you ship it out. Thanks!
