Guys,

I went and got parts off of this yesterday. I guess I could have checked here first to see if anybody needed anything. I got the 1/4 window trim and the emblems, dash emblem too. Got the overflow jug also.

 I scored on the window trim, stainless and will clean up nice. I've never had a set for my car.

Anyway, The vinal top trim looked decent, Wasn't someone on here looking for a set? All of the trim was decent. Not much else is good. Everything is rotted. Hood and trunk lid were decent, but I've seen better. Still has interior but will most likely crumble upon removal. If anyone needs anything call the number in the ad. He may ship, he mentioned he wants to open a e-bay store to get some exposure. You can tell him the guy that got the window trim put his ad up on the forum so he knows your legit.

It is 80 miles from me so I can't run down there to check stuff out.

He also had a 73 or 4 cutlass. It was hit and pretty much junk but it did have a center console & shifter if any Olds guys are interested.

i dunno, Guy is closed on week-ends. I had to take a vacation day to go there. I've got vacation coming up but plans are made. If he was local I might do it. I can call him and see if he'll ship. What are you after?

What I am mostly needing is the plastic parts . Like the trim . I wonder if the dash pad is any good ? Also maybe the gauges ?

The only plastic I looked at was the dash and the inside rear window quarter trim. Both were there but trashed. This stuff simply was not designed to last 45 yrs baking in the sun.

Sweep type speedo, no gauges.

Especially, the white/off-white plastic trims. I've been digging thru cars up here in MN for 15+ yrs and have yet to find any white plastic that wasn't crumbling. Black fared better and can sometimes still be found in good condition.

You guessed it. White. The package tray itself was rotted away. You could see straight down to the gas tank. The result of a leaking rear window sitting outside for many years.

I would have grabbed it if it was any good because people are always looking for the stuff.
