Anyone have a tailgate they want to get rid of? The body shop can’t find a source for one and I’m guessing the insurance is going to total out my car. If I can find a tailgate, the body shop said they’d spray it for $300-400.

Im sure shipping would be expensive for the weight and size of a tailgate. Where are you located?

Washington. I found one on eBay that was $165 plus $200 shipping. It was the same color as mine but had a small dent. I’ve heard of a few guys on here that have shipped with Greyhound, idk if that’s an option for you or not.

Do you still need a tailgate? I have one off a newer caprice ('96?). I live outside of Seattle.

Yes, I’m still looking for a tailgate. I’m in the Yakima area. How much are you wanting for it? Is it in good condition?

I would get the left body side hinges with the 96 tailgate if possible, or you may have to swap your 92 hinges from the left side of the gate to the 96. I would install it and try the 96 parts if they are on the tailgate, but if you have issues, the latching mechanisms may be a little different, or so I have been told.
