Where Can You Find Parts to Restore Your Vintage Vehicle?

Clara Graves

If you are interested in starting a hobby in restoring a vintage car, you will undoubtedly come across situations where new parts are required to get your vehicle running and looking like new. Finding vintage car parts can be a bit tricky, sometimes making the project last longer than expected. Knowing where to turn to will help alleviate frustration when participating in this hobby, possibly making you anticipate acquiring new vehicles in the future to restore. Here are some areas to investigate when looking for vintage American car parts.

Local Repair Shops

Take the time to visit several local automobile repair businesses to inquire if they know anyone who has a vehicle with the same make and model as the one you are trying to restore. Leaving your name and number with these shops can prove to be lucrative as other classic car owners may come to have repairs done, possibly leading to contacts you can speak with as a result. Another idea is to post a flyer on the wall of repair shops asking others with similar vehicles to contact you.

Look for Online Groups

Spend some time browsing online to find groups for classic car enthusiasts. These groups will allow you to get close to other members with similar vehicles, possibly leading you to an area where you can purchase the parts you so desperately need. These groups will also allow you to ask questions regarding the proper way to install parts if necessary.

Check Salvage Yards

Many times automobile salvage yards have parts needed for classic vehicles right in their office area. Other auto yards will require you come to the property to remove parts from old vehicles, on your own. Call area junk yards to find out if they offer parts for sale before taking a visit. The workers at these facilities usually have the property set up with like modeled vehicles grouped together, making it easier to find the parts you desire. Pack a bag of tools to bring along if you need to take parts off of vehicles to purchase.

Visit Car Shows

Start frequenting classic car shows to inspire you to fix up your own vehicle for the future. While you walk through the event appreciating the work others have done with their restoration projects, keep an eye open for vehicles like yours. Strike up conversations with other car show visitors and participants as someone may have information to pass along regarding their own part supply discoveries.
