  1. As mentioned, depends on what parts you’re looking for. Car is a GM A body platform so I’m guessing lots of interchangeability. Monte Carlo, Century, and ect.
  2. I think how they hold up depends on where you live (humidity, elevation, salt water). Also, paint color. I live at 5000’+ and in low humidity area. I have eight vehicles that stay outside year around. 3 or 4 go under car covers in the winter because they are not driven on winter roads. I tend to keep vehicles forever. Of the outside vehicles, I’ve owned the oldest for over 50 years and the newest for 12 years. All are light colored with the exception of a 1970 cj5 Jeep which is bright red. I painted the Jeep with acrylic in 91 or 92 and it’s starting to fade. It’s on the “to do” list to paint and I’ll clear it this time. Paint is good on all the others. I keep them waxed and maintained especially rubber trim I’ve never had a problem with rust, rot, mold, varmits, and ect., but all my vehicles are steel, no wood.
  3. I remember being late to school because I had to file the points in the “vibrator” ( never knew correct terminology) in the radio. Points would sometimes stick when radio turned off/on. Radio had to work for car to move.
  4. When I was in high school, my best friend had a 1955 Ford two door post with a 272 factory 4 bbl, dual exhaust, and automatic. That was the only 272 4 bbl set up I ever saw. I had a 1955 Ford two door hardtop with a factory 292 Thunderbird 4 bbl, dual exhaust, and manual. Black and white with white interior. Beautiful car. I bought it in 1956 from a Ford dealer with 11,000 miles on it. Nicknamed CE for Chevy eater. I never ran across another ‘55 with a 292 in it.
