eBay still listed 700 bucks though
had a buddy with a 67 chevy II convertible--he said the top irons were a bitch to find!
This Yankee Switch Custom with skull pilot with light up eyes. $399
1958 Chrysler 300D FUEL INJECTION INSIGNIA from rear quarter panel. Only 16 of these beasts were ever built, and I had one many years ago.Craziest car I ever owned. Insignia is all that I have left of that one.
Cougar Eliminator 2 speed rear end with matching speedometer shifter setup. Have never seen one for sale anywhere.
My buddy had a pair come through his shop. One had been cut up. He used measurements from the good one to put the other back together. Very cool.
53 Studebaker grille surrounds that aren't cracked, any other 53 studebaker front sheetmetal, and doors for a 1925 dodge brothers 3/4 ton screen side truck.
A junkyard in Anchorage had the door handle marked "Millionth Vega"
Guess I should have bought this...
Offenhauser Xshift transmission, and yes I have one.....
Hey man thats not traditional.
A unicorn holding a 4 bbl intake for a Buick 364 nailhead. For me anyways...
the Holy Grail of rare parts?
I didn't read all 30 pages of answers but this one is simple.
The part you need right now to make the car driveable and show worthy.
I guess it's all dependent on what you like. I personally love 4/71 blower stuff, so that would
Be mine, but to others it would be ardun parts. I have a 3 speed stick overdrive that is a top
Loader in my roaster. I have never seen another one.
or BBC from hartman..... oh i have some , somewhere
Still a SBC 4-71 manifold, that I can afford.
A set of CHET HERBERT original hand made roller lifters--these are some of the very first roller lifters ever made--you ran a piece of flat stock bar down the galley through the slots to keep them in place---
Well, if I ever get my 1933 Ford Hiboy Roadster Built, I plan on using a 1933 Lincoln Grill & Insert! An you always need to have a Backup Grill incase you Crash, So, I finally have my Backup 1933 Lincoln Grill. I guess I got to get my Roadster Finished. They only made 2,200, Lincoln's in 1933. So, I think that would make the Grills Rare & Hard to find, & I only had to pay $200.00 in each one. I just bought the last insert off Evil Bay For $125.00. As, it was miss listed as 1937-39 Lincoln Grill. You'd think People would know, what a 1933 Lincoln Grill would be? Now, I just need to find in my Garage my Spare Backup Set of Kinmont Brakes, Cause you need to have to have Spare Rare Kinmont brakes!

How about an Oberhausen electric supercharger.
You just made me puke
To me a nice original 1932 Pines Winterfront grille assembly would rate high on my list. HRP
Not sure if rare but I haven't seen another one in person or listed for sale. I'm thinking my internet search capabilities are just lacking. Keep finding Chevy versions in steel and aluminum and even a few BB Ford and Mopar but nothing on early Pontiac. RC Industries 2 piece scattershield. Heavy as all get out and thinking made of aluminum so not sure how long they were actually NHRA certified.
'46-'48 Ford Woodie rain gutters.....
Anything original 427 SOHC or Boss 429.
Four barrel manifold for a 364 nailhead
Ford 427 long tube iron exhaust manifolds. ( for me anyway).
An original windage tray for a (let's call it a 1965) Nova with 327/350 hp.
I know, I know, they didn't make one in 65.
Not sure if its mentioned before but for the last 60 years a 37 Cad/LaSalle 3 speed floor shift transmission has definitely been a Holy Grail for me.
