    Hi guys,

    I am writing from over seas.

    I need a few exterior and interior pieces for my 1976 Electra Limited Park Avenue.

    I have not explored non-mechanical parts sourcing for the car in a very long time.

    I need the left and right parking light assemblies that go under the quad headlights as well as the bezels if possible.

    A lot of the other stuff I need is not unique to this make and model so just need some sources who may specialize in breaking / parting this era of GM vehicle.

    Would be appreciated if I could get some direction here.

    I did not opt to make a "Parts Wanted" thread because I'm looking around / researching at the moment.

    Would require int'l shipping and hoping for a credit card payment option to simplify things (PayPal is not available in my home country).

    Thank you guys!

    I forgot about CTC used to look at that site as a kid all the time.

    I will DVAP a call regarding the Lesabre and see what they say.

    Yes I got a few parts from Gary a few years ago, was an excellent transaction but PayPal dependent so wanted to see some other options before getting in touch with him again.

    Would anyone happen to have a photograph or a specific name for the 'stop' mechanism / bracket that the roller moves on to hold our cars' doors in the ajar positions?

    I believe its a curved piece with a step in it for holding the door open in two positions.

    My driver's side piece is broken and I don't want to take apart my passenger door to remove it and make a mirrored copy.

    I just had to find one of these entire upper hinges, for a 76 that I'm working on. Pretty much any 70s gm big car will work, mine I got from a 74 or so Eldorado, direct bolt on.
