72 Roadrunner rear window louvre

Hello all!
I purchased my dream car when I retired in 2018. It is a 72 Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus / Roadrunner clone in Limelight Green. It was restored 4 years before I purchased it, but I have been searching for the correct rear window louvre without success. I am not talking about the Carid type or Astra Hammond ABS model; I would like the multi-piece Louver specifically made for this vehicle. Don’t have a ton of money to spend, but any help or guidance toward finding one would be greatly appreciated.
I read a conversation on your forum that mentioned Gene Gregory. Is he the person that fabricates this Louver?
Thank you in advance for your help;
Matt

There is only one person I know of that makes them now, his goes by Dayclona over on the mopatrs forum, and yes his name is Gene. He and his wife built the 71 Super Bird car the way the factory was gonna do one. They live in upstate NY. They are gonna be be expensive, I think around $1,500 to $2,000. One thing, you have to drill holes in your car

Not exactly. Dayclona is Mike Goyette and he is in Massachusetts. He helped build the 71 wing cars, but the owners Gary and Pam did most of the work. None of them live in NY. Mike did used to make the window louvers but I don't believe he does anymore. http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index ... c=111966.0

If you are able to find a set, either used or repop expect them to be very expensive.

Now that I have my brain engaged, I think I got mine from Gene.Didn't he retire, or something?
