    Picked up a 66 Valiant convertible V8 auto, driver quality, needs interior and maintenance parts, its been parked awhile. Already have the basics ordered.

    The trunk torsion/tension bar that hold the deck lid open. Is that supposed to have bushings on the ends? Also the white plastic wire harness loops in the engine compartment who sells those, and in general where to source to parts?

      Looks like a nice car. Some reliable parts suppliers are listed here. Gary Goers was an excellent source for all those bits and bobs like the wire harness straps. His health failed and he quit the biz, but his entire inventory and tooling got picked up by another outfit and it's all still on offer by request. Also see this thread.

            Great list of suppliers thanks! Was getting nervous that it would be a witch hunt finding some of the small stuff. New to the Mopar world
