Where would you go (online) to find original parts at the best price? This truck is very important to me and I want to keep it as original as possible.

Thanks!

Don't know about online, but if you want to keep it "original" a Chevy dealer might be your best source for parts. They won't be the cheapest, but they will be OEM parts. I'm assuming you would prefer not to use "aftermarket" pieces. Salvage yards are another option, and many of the salvage yards have an online network to find the part you are looking for. In some cases however, a used part may end up costing more than new from a dealer.

If you know anyone who belongs to a "vintage" car or truck club, they should know where to find original equipment parts.

I was going to say LMC. There is a few company's out there. But the best is these guys. http://www.classicindustries.com/truck/parts/ There parts books are over 300 pages. If you can not find it there. You might have a problem. Last time I saw one of there books. You could get any thing you needed from them.

Keeping it original should be no problem and a great way to honor the memory of your grandfather
