Fintail Parts

Hello, I am restoring an old 1961 220s fintail - does anyone know of a reliable source for parts for these overseas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Michael

What parts are you looking for? I have a donor car...

Also, have a look here for a great explanation of the finnies

You can also try:

rockauto.com - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/mer ... l6,1343146
autohausaz.com - https://www.autohausaz.com/catalog/c/me ... 20s_111012

Shipping can be a pain, one alternative is to use a forwarding service such as shopmate - autohaus offers free ground shipping to a USA address so it can be cheaper to have it sent to shopmate for free and then pay their charges instead of paying autohaus' shipping costs (only choice is ups as they have a contract with them).
