Whether it is an Autopulse fuel pump or an original car jack, resources like ebay and automotive memorabilia auction websites are surfed daily to see if something turns up. Many parts can be found and bought at bargain prices from some unsuspecting seller, but others such as an original type 547 engine will always demand top dollar.
