NOS/original vs Reproduction Parts Prices

1337 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???


68 California Special- Acapulco Blue- Will someone please sell me one Marchal fog lamp lense?

Some of the repo stuff looks really bad and you have to
try and find a good used, or NOS. To me, good used is
a hard thing to do, but is the most rewarding. Anyone
with a tone of money can buy NOS parts. Getting a nice
used factory part that is still in good shape, and didn't cost
you a arm and a leg is worth the effort . That's one reason I
like to go to the swap meets. Good stuff, fair price.
