Then and Now Automotive

Postby spencerforhire » Wed Sep 08, 2010 6:03 pm

Located in Weymouth Massachusetts, Then and Now Automotive specialize in hard to find antique auto parts; an inquiry into H-body ball joints resulted in this information-
"Here are the totals for this store, could be more at one of our other buildings.

71 - 80 Upper Ball Joint - 50+ $79.00 ea
71 - 74 Lower Ball Joint - 20+ $68.00 ea
75 - 80 Lower Ball Joint - 20+ $39.00 ea

They are either Moog, TRW, or some other aftermarket brand."

I'm not sure whether or not these prices are in line with what you guys have been paying, but it's good to see they have lots in stock.

Their website(maintained by the same host as my site) does NOT have a searchable database of parts, but can be used to contact them about the the ball joints(or other things).

Here's a link- ... motive.htm

If you're having a hard time with your local auto parts store over ordering parts for older cars, these guys can help.

Note- the very act of listing all of these has made me realize I have some kind of problem.....
