Hi. I also have a Heritage replica of a 500k.  I do not believe I have ever seen a more beautiful vehicle.  Mine was built in 1989 and has a 350 Chevy, turbo 350 trans, Camero front clip…. All pretty standard from what I understand.  I need to upgrade wheels and several other Heritage parts.  Have you found any good sources of supply?  My car looks a lot like yours, but I need to clean up a lot of details and I believe many things can be replaced with a lot less effort than trying to save things that are now 34 years old and have not been maintained as well as they should have been ( my fault!  Sometimes life gets in the way).
