what parts do you wish you could get as a reproduction?
I reminisced some about finding parts before EBAY and the Internet on another thread. I went poking around on some of the vendors sites and it reminded me of all kinds of things that just were not available as a reproduction item.

So I thought it would be 'fun' to list what you wish you could find as a new reproduction. Maybe someone else has seen it? Maybe a vendor will decide that there might be enough interest?

What I really want is 73 convertible rear interior panels in WHITE. I think I saw them once in black but painting them just means they are going to get scratched up.

73 Convertible - 351C/4V CC heads/4bolt/forged flat tops/comp 270/rhodes/mallory unilite/tri-power/hookers/glasspacks/c6/3.50 limited slip/Gear Vendors/Global West sub frames, strut rods and shelby style traction bars/ Rear sway bar/tilt steering (not original)

Pics of modifications included in:
interior rear quarterpanels. they make HORRIBLE reproductions now, somebody needs to make OEM matching ones for all 3 body styles.

A piller covers. for fastback and coupe.

Roof drip trim. for fastback and coupe.

Shock towers, full-length front frame rails, torque boxes, rockers, cross-members (front, engine, and transmission), trunk surround, intermediate panel/rear shock mount (upper), firewall, cowl, cowl covers, and fresh air vent inlets.

I haven't even gotten to the 'pretty' stuff yet. Wink

Decent exterior trim like rear window moldings, drip rail moldings, windshield moldings and window weatherstrip moldings. Heavy duty trunk springs for use with spoilers. 3 spoke steering wheels that are affordable. '73 urethane front bumpers. '73 rear bumperettes and the rub strips for the rear bumper. Instrument cluster lens with the whole in it for the trip odometer. Oh, and I would love to fine a reproduction slotted mag in 15x8 or even deep dish 15x10. Not the American Racing Ansen Sprint wheels but ones that look right and use the correct center cap. How about a deluxe door panel that comes complete? How about some replacement harnesses?
The plastic panels for the sport deck option (aka: fold-down rear seat) that go from the qtr windows back and wrap around to the trap door. They're not available, period. The only ones I've seen come available for years are total crap that people want WAY too much money for.
Doors, the electric window lock switch, rear electric window motors, console clock, T5 emblems, roof rail moldings uretane bumpers.....
And i wish a better quality for the repro parts. Some parts that i buy are only trash (rear window moldings, dash pad...) not to install only crap for much money.
