Default New Chevelle Owner

Hello all, New to the forum and as a Chevelle owner

Im looking for direction on the best place to buy parts for my 69 Chevelle

I want to keep the car as factory as possible. No aftermarket or JC Whintney parts

Any suggestions for a first time owner?

Hard not to have to buy after market parts for some things.

Couple of ways to keep with GM parts
http://www.gmpartsdepartment.com/ and

oldmusclecars.com or was, which is Modern Chevrolet of Winston-Salem. They have a great catalog that shows all the parts and in fact is better then the assembly manual in some cases.

Welcome MCK. I agree with flash, put up a listing of the parts you are looking for. Many of these guys can point you in the right direction.
