NOS/original vs Reproduction Parts Prices

1334 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???

WASTING money, my hood (with turn signals) has a little dent on the center line right over the carb, it can't be repaired because of the heat from the engine would shift the bondo, so I went to NPD and bought a repro hood with turn signals two weeks ago, I find out on Monday that the company I just started working for owns a ford dealership and I get employee cost, I called them up and there is three hoods left in Canada all w/o turn signals, thinking I better act fast before they're are gone, I bought one, now I have two new hoods, I prefer the turn signals and have the parts to make it complete, so now I'm thinking to paint them both and change them once and a while, can't wait to get this thing back on the road, and all the decisions over!!!!
