NOS 1970 Grand Prix Parts That I Have
Purchased From Various Sources
The purpose of this page is to demonstrate
that finding NOS parts for the 69-72 era Grand Prix can be done. For many
years these cars existed in relative obscurity and are only now beginning to catch on in popularity. Too many of these old
luxury warriors have been lost and now there aren't enough to go around. Parts for these cars are very difficult to find.
Restoring one of these cars is completely unlike doing a Firebird or GTO. I lost count of how many times people would
direct me to Ames or Year One or Performance Years when I was looking for a part like a parking lens, tail lens, quarter
to bumper molding etc. Most people just don't realize these parts are not being reproduced and likely never will be.
Never the less, I can say that searching for the NOS parts required to restore my car has been an effort which I have
enjoyed immensely. The joyful anticipation of waiting for a part to arrive in the mail after searching for a year! Only a car
nut would understand this. A car doesn't have to be special to warrant this type of attention. My car is not an SJ, it doesn't
have the most powerful engine offered and its an automatic. In fact there is nothing "special" about it, but I'm restoring my
car for the best reasons that I believe anyone could have...its mine, I like it and it is the first car I ever purchased (in 1978).
It is like part of the family and I plan to pass it on to my sons one day.
