Actually i wanted to do the same thing. i work for an aerospace company for 3 yrs. and this is the kind of work i do. If anybody is interested please email me...
The splash molds would be coming from a 1971 of course.
I can get tooling and parts in less than a month if i have about 5 people on board.

On board for a couple hoods ! Hard to find !

Doors that work , ie: windows.
Fiberglass ones do not have working windows (that I know of).

Make them : they will sell !
