Default Can Am front clip

I recently purchased a front clip; either an Ecklers Can Am or Greenwood. I planned on cutting a part of the nose from it, but have decided against it. I have it for sale, or will trade for some bits thaat I want/need.

It was stored behind the barn for who knows how long. On a scale of 1 to 5, 1=better than nothing, 2= poor, 3 = fair, 4 = good, and 5 = like new, this would be categorized as a 2.75. It has a few cracks and some crazing of the gelcoat. Overall, it is easy enough to fix and make it look nice. The header bar, wheelwells, and interior structure are there, and in good condition.

Price is $650.00. I would not want to ship it, because it is large and fragile. It fits well in the bed of a pickup. Bring 3 ratchet straps minimum.

It is located in my workshop in Old Saybrook, CT.


I would happily trade for a pair of Hooker big-block sidemount headers (#2222), or pair of Hooker super competition under car headers, (#2225).

I am also looking for a set of Dunlop SP Sport GT tires ( 2 ea 275 & 255 60/15).

Are you interested in buying the nose, all the way from Florida? Do you plan on driving up to pick it up? You must be interested, why else would you be searching in New England for a part, when you are in Florida?

Do you have any of the things I asked for in a trade? I've bought tires, so they are off the list.
I do crawl the web daily interested in lots of things...I check forums..ebay..CL..etc the entire USA hunting all kinds of stuff out there not just car hobby stuff, my 69 came from ohio my frame texas my mako junk PA etc...lots of cats get stuff from other states.
i hit that cl seller he said part was sold...bummer,
Sorry...I don't have the stuff you want to swap...thanks
Cheers

Guys, I've removed a number of interference posts without sanctions so far in this thread.

This thread is about this part at this price. Please do not make posts about Craigslist ads or price commentary, thanks.

Still taking up space in my workshop. I was going to cut the forward portion off the nose, and use it to change the headights on my car, but this is apparently for a 73 or newer ( non-chrome bumper) car.
If you are interested, please make an offer. Cash price reduced...$250.00 OBO

Things I could take for partial or full trade are:

Small cap- tach drive HEI distributor

working TI tach drive distributor

New black carpet set for 69 coupe

American Racing "Daisy" wheels, 15 x 10 and/or 15 x 8

Milodon or Moroso road race type oil pan (big block)

I wish i could...it would be the 101 time my 69 changed direction, my wife likes my car stuff but i promised her to stay on a track,
You have it up here 250 obo thats a very fair price someone should jump on it,
I am pretty much sure this is the ecklers clips or parts...the best looking wide body front imho,
Someone could run this in the front and large l88 flares in the rear would look so sweet as a restro racer tribute build

It really does look good with regular flares in the back.
