Question Need Help finding parts

Hi All, I am a newbie! so pardon any mistakes. I have a 1995 Firebird that was hit in back-end passenger side, need a new bumper, taillight, qtr panel and most likely the hatch as well. What if any vehicles would be compatible to get parts from. (i.e. what year firebirds, or do any Camaro body parts interchange with this year?) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your rerply, just curious to know if you know which vehicles are interchangeable with the 95 firebird?

Thank You!

For the most part it should be any 4th gen firebird. So 93 to 02. There are a couple things that are a bit different between the years but it's nothing major. The Camaro parts are going to be different even though they look similar.

Make sure that it's worth fixing before you start getting parts. A rear end hit on a unibody car is usually not worth fixing. Once the floor pan buckles it becomes a nightmare to get everything realigned.

Bumper, quarter and hatch are interchangeable 93-02, tail light is going to be different 93-97 (grid style) and 98-02 (honeycomb style). Not sure on your body experience, but you know the quarter panel is a weld on part right? You can't just unbolt and bolt it back on right?

Drdave88,

No I did not know that. I am beginning to think it is not worth fixing. Everything else is in great shape, only 82k on motor. But it is just a reg. firebird. No bells and whistles. Thank you for your help!

If it's an LT1 your drivetrain is worth something. You can also part out the interior and a few other bits. Not sure if you want to go into parting out, but it's usually the best way to get money out of a wrecked car.
