Need a new oil pan for a 70-74 Z-28? (it's about $91). This part is listed in the H/D parts catalog - but what about SBC spark plug shields? They're still available too! Lot of the little parts NOT in the H/D catalog can still be had. As also mentioned, sometimes the part isn't EXACTLY like the original but it is GM!
These are just a few I have at work w/ pictures. If you can't read the pics, hover your mouse over the pic - the name of the pic is the part #. I didn't run their cost today - there might be some minor changes. A few over the years have been discontinued since I compiled the list.
THE Z28 GRILL EMBLEM I HAD POSTED IS NOW DISCONTINUED AFTER I CHECKED IT LAST NIGHT
Usually the trickiest part is coming up with the part number - the dealerships can't search for the number 'cause their data only goes back to @ 1990. The assembly manual gives the original part number - if it's been changed the link usually will tell you. If YOU give the dealer a number they can tell you if it's valid or not (OR changed) & LIST price. My dealer 6 miles from me often charges OVER list price!! Even with shipping it's usually cheaper to order online unless the part is a few dollars. Also, if you use Rock Auto ( & you should) a lot of times they will list the comparable GM # or an actual A/C-Delco part in the listings. Take that number & use the link above to check the availability & cost.
