Greetings, I am considering a purchase of an old 67 68 Camaro to restore. Can anyone pass to me a good supply source for our of stock, or remake of parts for these old cars?
Items thus far that came to mind: (to give an idea of what I'm looking for).

1. Grill, r/s type to replace the current no grill in one of the cars I'm looking at

2. Interior door panels, console, carpe kits etc.

I've done work on an old vette in the past and found tons of after market parts suppliers, but dealing with the Camaros are another topic. Any help, and or direction would be appreciated.

Thanks

I have found Ricks First Generation and D&R Classic excellent to deal with

Atfer just completing my wife's 69 and using several of the more popular vendors, I will have to say that Rick's First Gen is my pick for best knowledge, pricing and stock!

A word of caution. When purchasing parts many vendors state that the parts are technically correct. I have purchased the same parts from different vendors and they look allot different. Many times the finish is wrong or the part is El'Cheapo. Many use cheap import products so do your home work before shelling out your hard earned cash. You will be glad you did.

A store I highly recommend is McHenry Classics (815) 648-1700 owned by Ron Normann.
He's the owner & operator and like all of us at one time or another, has a few in process cars of his own to deal with.

Ron is experienced in Chevelles, Camaros and Novas. I've sent a number of people to him over the years.

If you have tired of speaking with salesmen and need the voice of experience Ron is your guy.

If your interested in some bookmarks, I can send you an export of "The Camaro Files". It's got links to Classic Industries, First Gen, and a whole bunch of others. Send me an email if you want it.

There are a lot of suppliers and as someone else mentioned there is a big difference in what should be the same part from vendor to vendor. Make sure you inquire about return policy on undamaged items before you buy.
