I'm headed to a salvage yard north of Greenville, MI that still has a row of 73-77 Chevelles. They are RUSTY (look for my Chevelle Graveyard photos on this forum) but I've been able to find a few gems in past visits. If there is a part you have been unable to find and want me to look, send me a PM. We can exchange phone numbers and on the day of my visit we'll talk. I won't have a lot of tools with me so I won't be pulling out dashboards or other complicated components.

I don't know what parts will cost; bought a door there 10 years ago and paid $200; went last month and got two lower front fender trim pieces for $10 each.

The cars are stacked two high and have been outdoors for 45 years. Bottom cars are sunk into the ground and floorboards mostly gone.

what are the "inner opera plastics"? Can you post a picture, please?

And you are looking for a complete '77 grille?

Can you please check to see if there are any good driver side A/C ducting? I'm looking for the cloth flexible tube that runs from the drivers side vent on the bezel to the plastic duct under the steering wheel column.

You are welcome. Those black panels are in MUCH better condition than what you have.

Missed your request before going to the yard...but any ductwork I saw was decayed and useless. I saw several slinky-like remains hanging from a few cars.
