Recently, there has been a few threads concerning getting body parts repro'ed.
One vendors answer has been that they don't see a market. A few years ago, when the supply of good parts cars and NOS parts was greater, I believe they were correct. But now, with a lot of those cars and parts gone, and with the changing demographics of the owners of a lot of these cars, I think the need may be there now.
Let's find out.
The poll is a list of Body parts for the most common cars. I know you pre-70 guys would like some parts too, but I think we have to start with the most popular body style, the 70-72.
I went to Goodmark's site, and grabbed some sample prices for Chev, Pont and Olds parts.. .
In some cases, I raised the prices, due to what I percieve as less demand than the example I looked at..
This is not about getting a bargin folks.. it's about getting them to make a part, that they can do, make money, and make us more parts...
The poll lists a part, a possible retail price based on other the prices for the same part for other brands, that they offer.
If you would purchase one of these parts, for the suggested retail price listed, then vote for that part. These are all 70-72 body parts.
You can vote as for as many items as you need. But don't just click them all, for the sake of "fattening up the poll" because if we get them to make a part, and nobody buys it, they will be much less likely to make something else for us. We need a reasonably accurate survey here.
We will give this some time to develop, and then forward the results to a number of manufacturers. And then maybe we can get something done.
The order that they appear in the poll, is what I consider the priority for need parts.. when's the last time you saw an NOS, or even good used, outer wheelhouse for sale?? And lots of guys need them..
Quarters and wheelhouses are almost automatic in this shop.. I have a few cars right now that could use wheelhouses.
This poll is open for 30 days, you can vote for as many parts as you will need.
Also note that to add validity to this poll, the vote is public.. what you voted for, and your username, will appear. (Although a glitch in the software will not allow you to see the names, after you vote)
