    It shows up pretty regularly on eBay. Depends on what you're looking for.

    The usual run of side spears, etc. - that's all stainless steel (not chromed) and pretty durable, may need polishing, will need redoing of the silver paint in the front fender end of the spear.

    The trunk and taillight bezel pieces are aluminum and a bit more hit/miss.

    I've got a fair pile of stuff for my '64 wagon once it starts going back together, I like to have two straight examples of everything on hand if I can.

    Is it that the items are missing or just dinged damaged?

    Its surprising how much of it can be repaired if damaged.

    Make a list of what all you need and I may be able to point you where to find it.

    I did this 64' A factory 427 car and repaired all the trim on my own.

    AD,
    I have bought some off of ebay in the past. I also belong to the Galaxie Club of America. There are a lot of good guys there. (I'm sure there could be a bum or two also but I have not run into any of them). Not only is there a chance of finding members with pieces you needed for sale or would be willing to sell. you will also find a ton of knowledge and other places to buy.

    Good luck and God Bless,
    Ed
