Hi all,

 

Going through a recently acquired 77 Trans Am and I think I'd like to add some window louvers to it as I work my way through. I was wondering if anyone had factory louvers they wouldn't mind parting with? Thanks much!

What do you call a factory louver? They are all aftermarket. Used originals from 70s and 80s are hard to come by and often incomplete or damaged. Willpak still market their variation of the original Astra-Hammond 3-piece in a cheaper, more basic form but still about 360 bucks. Many Firebird parts specialists now carry this range.

Sorry, factory was a poor choice of words. I was hoping to find some originals from the era, though I know that may be harder to do.

They occasionally turn up, patience and a lot of cash. I have had both NOS Hammond and Interpart louvres in their boxes shipped around the world.
