New old stock Hiliner Parts

I was finally able to clean out most of the storage building and came across a few boxes of new old stock parts.

If anyone needs any of these items i am happy to ship them out.  Or if you are local to Newbury, MA you can come by and take a look.    I also think there are some Bow handles somewhere, but they haven’t surfaced yet.

Cover Slider,  $10 a set (slider and base x2)

Tail Trim.   There are two sizes.  $20 a set

Bow Shield.   These are the smaller style.  $20

Dash Hinges  $5 a set,  there are two styles in the box

Hatch Handles  $5 each

    I know I have asked before as well but I would be interested in the “Tail Trim” and “Bow Shield” for my 1955 “140” Twin Cowl that we’ve talked about before… Date: Sat, 16 May 2015 21:32:25 +0000 To:

    Hello Jim, My Hiliner is still covered on the trailer out back of the funeral home here in Ipswich. It’s a project waiting it’s turn. I would like those tail trim pcs. Large or small, I’m not sure. I have the 17 footer I am hoping you will come look at at some point. Bob Porter Ipswich, MA 978-430-8232

    Hi James, I am interested in the bow shield….how long is it? The one I have is about 14” wide from tip to tip but looks exactly like the one you have pictured. Thanks, Brian Carey

    Hi Jim. I have posted on the site before. It is great. I would very much like the bow shield and the tail trim. I have a 1961 Fleetstar so I would need that size. I have the old tail trim and can send the measurement. If you tell me how much you need for shipping I would be happy to send the funds to you.

    I am restoring a 1957 Fleetstar. I would to get the tail trim pieces and bow piece from you to finish the job with style. My tail pieces are about 12.5 inches tall and the bow piece about 15 inches across the tips. If you still have some , just let me know where to send payment.
