"Here's yet another source for Dart parts. There is an auto salvage yard in Seguin, Texas that goes by the name of John's Salvage Company. The phone number is 1-800-397-9648 and the address is 2020 Fox Trotter Road, Seguin, TX. Hope this helps, as for me I was just GIVEN my first Dart, a 1964 2DR with a 226/3-speed that has not been driven in 3 years and has been sitting behind a barn. Wish me luck....Wayne Ollison, Austin, TX"

Blue Star, a long-established Australian outfit, sells for many Valiants - you can get things like amber turn signals that fit your American/Canadian Valiants from them! People say they have great parts and service.

"I replaced the kickdown linkage on my 1970 Dart when I switched to a four barrel Edelbrock with a kit I obtained from Bouchillon Performance in Charleston, SC. I don't endorse their shop; they're usually surly and unpleasant, but this kit works and they claim it's universal. It might make a decent last resort move for someone who can't get it together from the junkyard. It was a little over a hundred bucks, easy to install and adjust, though not good for the strict restorer." - Dan Summerlin, Austin, Tx

When pricing a new top for my '63 Valiant convertible, I found that the prices can really vary. The best luck I had was a local trim shop here in Phoenix.
