Wanted: '47-'50 Left Cowl Vent Door

Like the title says, my '50 3600 driver side cowl vent door has some big holes drilled in it and looking for a replacement.

Thanks,

Steve weim55 Colorado

Re: Wanted: '47-'50 Left Cowl Vent Door

I have one, contact me through a PM with an address and I will box it up, shipping is all I will need from you. Now, unless you have something I need and we can trade. I need a drivers door outside window moulding if you have it that would be so cool!

But either way I will send you that side cowl vent.

Thanks for the reply, is the molding you're speaking of the stainless piece that would have come on the truck with the chrome option?

I am thinking the metal ones, I have to cut them as I have a chopped top. I have a few for the right but my left ones are all damaged.

I would be interesting the stainless though, in a pair. And of course I would pay you for those if you have them. I have no idea of the value of this cowl vent compared or any of that crap. I will give you the cowl vent, no problem, send me your address and it's in the mail.

Cool!
But let me know where I can send that side cowl vent. It has the handle too. And if you want the surround around it that I cut off the cab. But that would need a much larger box.

Re: Wanted: '47-'50 Left Cowl Vent Door

It turns out Dwayne gave me a cowl vent door with some other items that I purchased. However, I scoured the yard and came across this: I believe this is a 54 GMC that has the stainless you were looking for. Let me know if you want me to check into it and I can get some pricing for you.

Thanks,

Re: Wanted: '47-'50 Left Cowl Vent Door

It's cool, I'll come up with one. Damn, I hate to see that truck parted out! Not sure if the vent window doors have a different moulding anyway. I know I thought the inside ones were the same outside of the knock to clear the vent hinge. That was until I cut one up for my top chop and found that they are a different thickness because the vent window doors had no frame around the glass!
