Vintage and Classic Car Spares Thread

Recommended Posts

It is hoped that this forum  will have a section for vintage and classic car spares for members to buy and sell. Spares for such rare cars are tough to come by and if one enthusiast is able to come to the rescue of another, this website will be of gr8 help.

For spares you all can try Maulana Mansuri's shop at the Scrap market near JJ Hospital, Mumbai. Cyrus your pre- 1963 Fiat tail light covers will surely be there, if not he'll get it soon for you.But Zavo the VW Bug spares are rare( Bangkok, I heard has many shops selling Bug spares) and this shop may be only of some help also for the Merc spares. I feel the Merc dealers and also the VW dealers ( with the Passat coming )need to stock genuine old model spares for the benefit of ol car lovers who are loyal to their brand. Leave alone keeping a stock, they even stop manufacture of spares of any model, ten years after the model is out of production.

Hi Guys,

You get most of these spares in the Jamma Mazjid Scrap Market in Old Delhi.  I seen spares of virtually all cars, and if they don't have them, they have useful leads to get them..

 

Try your luck!!!
