    What are people's ideas of the rarest and most difficult parts to find? The parts that you should know about so if you ever have a chance to snatch one up you can?
     
  2. ARDUN heads for a flathead !! IMHO

    An Edelbrock P600 3x2 intake for a '57 - '66 318 Poly. Hell, strike that - the Edelbrock valve covers for that same engine are rarer than that!

    So I'd have to go for the Edelbrock 318 Poly finned aluminum valve covers. Like gold, I tells ya - LIKE GOLD!!!!

    The absolutely rarest of parts are probably almost worthless except for conversation pieces. they would be the one off stuff that early innovators brewed up in the garage. Rare and valuable aren't always the same.

    Of usable pieces, the above mentioned is a good place to start. Magnesium adjustable early Olds rockers are pretty hard to come by. Should'a kept mine I guess.

    I like em all...Latham supercharges, Turbonique units, Oberhausens, Scott injectors,meteor Injectors, Lincoln speed parts, and 8 duece setups but the rarest parts seem to be ones I need, can use, can afford, and actually work. I've always found great parts that I can't use, don't need, can't afford, or don't work.
