Looks like a lot of people are wanting thoses items. Personally I can't afford thoses prices. I'll stick to my used & aftermarket pieces. I guess if you got the money & are restoring a orginal numbers matching car & you want NOS you will have more in it than it is worht in todays market

I have talked about a few of these items on other posts during the past week. The shifter bracket will likely go to 1200.00-1500.00 as they are quite rare and the Yenko / Copo bous will pay top dollar for that part. The wiring harness I can see as the repops are also 400.00 or more depending where you buy, but the weather strip is a bit retarded. Glad me car is almost done and these parts are going up, because it makes an original and documented car worth a ton more when the parts get stupid.
Not good for the hobbyist though, and makes the swap meets that much more important as a scavenge mission.

If the guys doing points cars or highly accurate original restorations have to buy the pricey NOS parts, the market price on these pristine cars will rise accordingly. There aren't many restorers who are willing to take a loss on the cars they are doing. Individual prices drive up the package price. It will also make... "Parts Cars" (hate that word) more costly also.
Although it stinks that Camaro stuff is rising in price, think of it this way. That car sitting in your garage is probably a safer investment right now than your 401k!!! While the stocks are hitting rock bottom and people have lost thousands upon thousands of dollars out of their life long savings, the value of the 1st gen Camaros has held strong and even increased.
Just my $.02

You think that's something, check out the prices for original '69 rosewood steering wheels.....
Too bad the repros suck.....

On the contrary, I think the repro Rosewoods are just fine, especially considering the price of the originals......... smile.gif

Kz.....not trying to diss ya...
Maybe I should have went a little further before I went off the deep end.....
I bought one of those repros....it "looked" ok, but when you compare to an original...sorry, no cigar. Too shiny and way too grainy and the color...well...it's close....
Either way, after one month on the car, it developed an eigth-inch crack at the 12:00 position. Returned with refund to Classic Camaro....
I have a friend who bought the same thing a few weeks after I told him of my story. He figured...well it must have been one of those things....
Welp guess what.....it cracked. Same place.
Returned with refund.
Camaro Nationals at Carlisle 2003. Same M.O. with a guy who just bought his weeks before the event. He said he was gonna "return this P.O.S."
KZ..I hope this doesn't happen to you.....maybe it was one of those "manufacturing defects" we hear so much of of in this hobby.....either way, keep your receipt "just in case".....

69SS350, no offense taken. Mine's only been mounted since Christmas, but I kept my receipt, if it cracks, it definitely goes back! Dennis, guilty as charged. I have a repro in my clone, but my buddies like SSDanny69 with the real deal cars are always looking for these high dollar items. Shoot, half the stuff I buy on eBay I resell anyway, it's all about making a few bucks to continue upgrading my car! I've bid on ALOT of those wheels, and I still haven't won one yet! You can certainly tell the difference, but for MY car, the repro is fine, maybe I should have qualified that statement...... smile.gif

The horns are a bargain if they work as good as they look. $380 to rebuild my originals!!

A friend of mine just bought a bucket of hurst shifters, for $300. Probably 10-12 in the bucket, 3-4 were 69's, one had a b/b bracket attached. Obviously not bought on ebay!!
Jan 15th, 04, 02:54 PM
I never realized those shifter mount bracket was worth so much I have two or three of those now. I bet if mine was on Ebay the price would not go that high, people would think I was crazy for having a reserve that high. graemlins/clonk.gif

A Pair of 69 NOS door weather strips went tonight for $225.00 in their original boxes. I think COPO got them. around 4:00 o'clock. ugh.
