    Junk yard parts grab, let me know what you need!

    Hey guys! In the next few weeks (depending on weather) I'll be heading to a semi-local junk yard honey hole that I know has a few 2nd gen vans and maybe a couple first gens and even some later model stuff. Most are pretty beat up but there's plenty to salvage. If there's something in particular you want me to keep an eye out for or grab let me know! I can ship parts on your dime from Concord, NC.

    Reply to this post with what part you need or want me to atleast look for while I'm there and if you want to include a round about price you'd pay for the part that would help me out on whether or not to buy it depending on what they charge me.

    I'm not looking to make a big profit or anything dumb, just wanting to help the community out so I won't mark the price up crazy. Maybe a dollar or two depending on how much time the part takes to retrieve.

    I'll also take good pictures of any vans I come across and post them here for anyone in the future that is in need of parts.

    Pop-out windows?
    (for me)

    Anything and everything will eventually be needed.
    If you have the place to do it. Drag them out and piece it all out.

    Hey Canman and Welcome!
    Check out LMC Truck, Brothers Truck parts, The Car and Truck Shop, Classic Parts.
    Any/All will have the correct handle. Unless you want that originality...(used)
    These are good reproduction.

    Sorry for the delay, the weather here has been an absolute wash out since I made the post. The yard is right at 1000 acres and alot of the cars are very spread out in the woods and rough terrain. As soon as we can get a few days of sunshine leading up to a Saturday ill be be headed up. I don't want to jinx it but this week is looking pretty clear... so far...

    Hey sorry, I should've been more clear. I'm looking for the internal crank mechanism. I've got the glass, got the crank handle, got the felt guides for the glass, but I don't have have the internal wind up parts, Kinda looks like an Axe when folded up and like an Axe with an X for handle when unfolded.

    Thanks

    I don't have one I was going to try & post a photo for your reference - but we ae still having picture issues here. I believe you are looking for a window Regulator as they are called, P/N 3833717. If there is a reason you need a photo, PM with your email address.

    Well we've only got an inch of rain this week and I'm tired of waiting for it to dry so tomorrow morning me and a group of friends are heading up to see what we can do. I'll be taking a bunch of pictures and grabbing the parts that have been mentioned (if available). I'll update and let you know what I find! And if there's something that hasn't been mentioned or you see something you can't live without let me know and I can always make another trip.

    Thanks for the patience!

    Well we made it out there and spent about 90% of the time mostly just taking inventory of what all they had because this place is MASSIVE. We didn't have much time to really pull parts but I did manage to find some of the things some of you asked about. We'll be making another trip up soon to pull everything. Im trying to upload these damn pictures but its not letting me.. I'll keep trying

    Nahh there wasn't much luck in the 1st gen department. There was one 65 but it was pretty much gutted. It had pop outs but they were in horrible shape and no motor or tranny. Where did the factory antenna mount on the 66?

    We happened to find 8 vans total this time. There was one first gen, I believe it was a 65 that was pretty roached. And there were 7 2nd gen vans 5 of them were 108 panels with some salvageable parts. I may be able to grab some window mechanisms and door latches that some of you asked about. There was one 108 window van that had 4 of the windows replaced with some "custom" role out windows. And by far the nicest of all of them was a short wheel base that was missing all 4 barn doors but had a motor, good glass, and both front doors. There were a couple of dash pads that could possibly be used to recover but they had the typical cracks. Theres some interior parts that could be used like heater controls, switches, arm rests, and other knick knacks. I did manage to grab a decent shape gauge cluster if anyone's in need. Like I said, we didn't beget much time for pulling parts but we will definitely be heading back.

    You have learned a lot...but have much to learn...

    If you can, please get them. All of them. Please email pics and we can work out the shipping.
    Any chance that van is a custom or deluxe?

    Hey Freaky..
    I believe we've been trolled here. There is a couple ways to find the value of things...
    Put stuff up for sale and hope you asked the right amount OR
    tell guys who might want parts that actually know what the stuff is worth that you have them, get offers for them,
    and then you find what stuff is worth and it didnt cost you a cent. Vapor is all you leave....

    Ive sent several PM and emails and never heard from this guy again. Theres another one floating around on here too...
    Says "Looky here" and then "Later tater" after receiving a serious reply.
