Re: oklahoma junk yard
You gotta love guys like that...we've got them up here too. There's a large yard about 15 miles away from me that still has some large Buicks from the early 50s to the 80s, and a few newer ones as well. I go there every spring to see if there's anything new, and unfortunately there isn't. I used to be able to deal with the guy, but lately he's been watching too much Barrett-Jackson and he figures he's sitting on a gold mine. Last year I did need a few parts and he thoroughly hosed me on them. Now he doesn't have anything I need so I won't go back there anymore.
He's got a few 64-69 Wildcats, no options, (farmer cars, 4 door sedans), a few very "naked" LeSabres of the same vintage, and one or two Electras, mostly from the early 70s. They've been there for at least 25 plus years, have been well picked over, and are pretty rusty. As far as 'Larks are concerned, he's got a couple of low-end 2bbl models. There is a 68 Riv there, but it's pretty much shot, and there's nothing really left.
PM me if you want the address and phone number of this place.
