An acute problem for classic car lovers
As the number of classic and more recent cars increases, the search for parts is becoming increasingly problematic. Demand exceeds supply, prices rise, supply sources dry up. What parts are still available where and at what price is not transparent.
Only about 20% of all parts are developed and produced by the vehicle manufacturer, primarily engine and body assemblies. The other components are provided by replacement part providers. All of these original parts and original equipment are held by the manufacturers beyond the production period. But not they don't hold them forever.
The second industrial source is the replacement market, i.e. for parts that were produced specifically for this purpose. But the supply has gaps here too when falling demand no longer permits profitable production.
The gaps are partially filled by smaller companies that specialise in the reproduction of vintage parts.
classicparts4you.com classicparts4you.com merges all these sources for you and only then provides a one-stop overview of the current situation for parts availability. As to be expected, availability is better in relation to the vehicle’s newness, starting from the 1960s. For pre-war cars, on the other hand, parts are only occasionally on offer from industrial production. In this case, further specific searches are needed, for example, via the Shop portal, with its access to the parts warehouses of affiliated workshops with used and new old stock parts.
