NOS/original vs Reproduction Parts Prices

1341 Views 14 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Opentracker
Lately I've been looking at the WIDE price differences between NOS/original and Repro parts. For example, the original heater hose with the red stripe for my car is $50 for 8 feet. OR... I could buy a black one for $8. Dual muffler tips with the correct rolled edge are $90 vs $20 for the cut-offs. Anyone got any other examples???

I totally agree Ken, I think its a function of practicality and expense. If you are reasonable about things then you'll probably realize it makes little difference for a DD while a collector may find the repro parts to devalue their car.

Frankly if its being driven at all I can hardly see how 3pt seatbelts, electric fans, pw/pdl, etc... devalue the car -- my life/comfort is far more important than the trivialties of whether or not that lap belt is correct :)
