Parts Guide For Retro Rides - Restoring Japan

The old school world is a tightly knit one.

Taking on an older car project can be very intimidating. Not knowing what parts are still available or where to get them can discourage just about anyone from even starting. Luckily for you we have taken the time to hunt down all the stuff that's still out there. There are parts and enthusiasts out there for any old chassis you pick. If you don't see what you're looking for, simply contact some of these companies and someone will be able to point you in the right direction. The old school world is a tightly knit one. We've located everything from front 'spooks' (scoop spoiler) to motor mount kits. Yes, we know most of you want to do new school motor swaps but don't have the fabrication skills to finish the job. We've included those here, too!
