A FREE forum with -member photo gallery- for the vintage Chevy, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and any GM builders.

PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you don’t want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early GM vehicles is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page….this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!

One day. I'd like to see if I can start the original engine to my 32.
This is not going to be a quick project. Mostly in my free free time (back burner) type of thing.

Its going to need a distributor or at least cap and plugs/ wires. Where can I get those ?

In the meantime it'll sit. What could I do to help thing's rotate one day.
Ive read that putting Marvels mystery oil down the cylinders could help.
Maybe put some oil in it. Check the dipstick.???
Drain/fill to check for shavings ????

Not sure I can put a breaker bar/socket on the lower pulley to break things loose. I think it's keyed (last time I checked).

Any recommendations ?

I've just watched an awesome movie, that has nothing to do with cars, except near the end, the two hero's end up in a well known car wrecking yard.
It's very Kiwi, about a young Maori boy, who goes into the Bush, with an older guy, on the run from police and child services.
I know Sixball would enjoy it, just hope you guys can understand the Kiwi talk.
This is a great movie, that the whole family can enjoy.

It's called, Hunt for the wilderpeople.
Don't know where you'll find it. Maybe IMDB?

I just read this thread on the Hamb.
Guy builds a 32 Chev hiboy, and rubs through the paint, to the original paint.
I'm not a fan of fake patina, but this is a whole nuther ball game.

Please ignore the usual Hamb drama from the purist.

1927 Chevrolet right front fender.  Believe it to be new old stock.  Was in my mother's attic 40+ years.     Local pick up near Philadelphia preferred, but will work with buyer to get it to a local shipping point arranged by buyer.   Free delivery to Spring Carlisle in April.

$275

Call or text Scott at 267-566-8430 for more information and pictures.
