There really aren't that many cars you can find every part for in a catalog outside of the usual suspects, Tri-fives, Chevelle, early Camaro, 65-70 Mustang etc.
Even the some of the big dollar Mopars still don't have a lot of repro stuff available....
recently started a frame off 72 Dodge D100 stepside. talk about NO support. No OEM stuff and very little repro. I've had to buy 3 additional parts trucks. luckily no one wants these trucks so with 4 trucks, I'm in $3000 with that alone. I'll be fab-ing most of the dash/interior and HVAC. All in the name of fun...
67 Chevelle (current project)
72 D100 stepside (current side project)
73 D100 styleside (current side, side project)
65 el camino (sold)
95 GSXR750 (OEM restoration)
