Here we have a 1958-64 Impala GM Compass. You won't ever lose your direction as this $2,000 Denmark compass will help you navigate through the boulevard. These compasses have been purchased as low as $800 and priced upwards of $4,000, depending on the condition and availability at the time.
We picked up these NOS rear bumper guards for a 1970 Caprice on eBay for $150. These guards were usually offered as a factory option or an upgrade for your vehicle. Nobody can really pinpoint when the bumper guards were originally created, as they can be seen as early as the late '30s. They were originally designed to protect your car's bumper and grills from damage. The guards were still in use until the mid '90s on some luxury vehicles, including the Cadillac Brougham.
1959 Impala. Chevrolet Paint Dividers were used on 1959 Two-Tone paint combinations. These Chevrolet paint dividers were found at a local automotive swapmeet for $550 for the pair, a fair price compared to the reproduction parts that recently surfaced. These NOS pieces will work superbly for your restoration, giving your car those final details.
59-60 Cruise Control- if you can find one in this condition, you will be paying anywhere from $3,500-5,000. Just like modern cruise control, this was an option to keep your car running at the speed that you desired when driving on the highway. This kit was purchased over five years ago and is now ready to be installed into a restoration job.
The hood ornament was a touch of class that could be found on vehicles dating back to the '30s. There have been several flying ladies, winged ladies, naked ladies, and chrome flying goddesses, to name a few of the designs available that gave your car or truck that stylish look. Sometime in the 1950s came this flying eagle. These hard to find emblems have become a rare find especially, in a NOS condition. This example is well worth $300.
Some people just can't have enough steering wheels. These steering wheels from the '30s through early '50s have vastly different pricing. They can start off at $800.00 and can go all the way up to $2,500.00, depending on the condition. Don't worry, there are some in this picture that I wouldn't pay more than $100 for, it's all about the demand. If you need it right now, you might have to pay for it, but if you're not in a hurry, you might pick up a deal like this guy did.
US Pioneer fog lights were superior in quality and were the choice of most car enthusiasts in the '40s and '50s. These fog lights have been the choice of many of the Bomb builders, and at one time, could still be purchased for $10 as new-old stock. Other items that you can see in this garage picture include a box of GM molding clips, once again proving that one man's junk is another man's treasure.
