    Hi

    I dont actually own a CBody but I'm over from FABO and FBBO because I like to learn about all of the 60's and 70's MOPARs. Also many of the drive trains are similar and engine parts interchangeable and I always seem to need a part or have questions and help out when I can.

    This last weekend I ran across a 70 Newport in one of the local U-Pull-it yards. although te drive train was completely removed there does remain a rusted heap. They are not going to have it long but I hope to drop in on them tomorrow and snap a couple pix for you.

    I did get a couple parts off of her while I was there though. I grabbed the 4 headlights as they are not cheap anymore, a wiper sprayer motor and the left drivers side fender indicator (the right was destroyed somehow). All work when I tested them at home.

    I'm keeping the headlights and sprayer motor for my BBody but have no use for the fender indicator. The only reason I snagged it was because it is in very good driver quality shape with no pitting.

    Anyway I'll post it in the for sale section in case anyone is interested with pix

    Hope you all have an awesome evening

    Troy

    :welcome:.........I remember a short period of time in my life that I didn't have an older Dodge or Plymouth. I always felt lost.

    :tiphat:Welcome from a fellow Canuk. It's remarkable that a Bbody guys shows any interest here. There's not many old car wreckers left in the Niagara area but it sounds like you still have a few up your way. Thanks for the update on the Newport.

    Thank you fellow MOPARers for the welcome

    As promised here are some pix I took today when I dropped back in on the U-Pull-It. My camera did bugger up a couple times and failed to save some of the pix of the interior like the radio and whats left of the intirior panels and underside.

    Another rear defogger in the scrap yard and always up north. Not that I need it but there are some parts on that car that should be saved, like the defogger............

    I was thinking the same thing but the trunk is locked and no key to be found. I know I could get through the back seats but definately unprepaired for that today. I think I will be going back on the weekend to at least get the scuff plates which are in good shape. Perhaps if the weather here holds I'll get the defogger and the door locks ( cuz I may be able to use them for the tumblers ) I was thinking of the 3 speed wiper motor too... But your right there are many good parts still on this car and it's a shame this u-pull-it turns over their inventory for scrap metal quite regularly. The recycler/cutter/crusher is right next door too.

    I must say though this outfit knows their stuff, when they bring in the vehicles they are all in nice rows and put high enough off the ground (most of the time) to easilly get almost anything underneath. There is no price adjusting for any makes or models and the prices are posted and advertised so no surprises. Prices are decent to (for now) as an example, I've been looking for a 9.25 rear for the suregrip... they want $60 for an entire rear, brakes included! not incl rims, tires or springs though.

    It's a shame the hood, trunk, bumpers and some of the chrome trim is still good.

    Oh well, signing off for now!
    Have a great evening!

    I have learned over the years you can't save everything but you also have to be wise. Some things can put money back in your pocket, fast.
