    I toss every oil and brake line I get when buying inventory.No way will I sell or use 50+ year old products. I consider them unsafe.
    I threw out over 30 radiator hoses recently.They cracked in my hands giving just a little bend to them.
    I didn't think of keeping them for mock up purposes.

      Our local mom and pop auto store has been in business since 1929. The son of the original owner is a friend of mine. He let me poke around in the very, very, back store room. I found some needed 4000, and 4001 AC Delco headlamps along with a Imperial-Eastman oil line assortment. There was also a box of cv boot kits for K cars, Citations, and the like early 1980’s fed cars. Upon handling the rubber items they simply crumbled in my hand. Sorry to say they all wound up in the dumpster.

        Bob, Thanks for the advice. That seems like a no-brainer. Although the parts are heavy, and shipping will not be cheap.

          I have a 1956 United Motors Service catalog if that would help. Covers all GM aftermarket parts for all car and truck makes. Does not include any interchange info, but it would help you ID any parts that fit your vehicles. Would be glad to loan it to you.

              I have a 1957 Auto-Lite Electrical catalog which may be helpful in identifying the Auto-Lite items. Let me know if I can help.
