    Junk yards/ salvage yards?

    Where are some good u-pull it junk yards that are local? None of the main places like Lamar Auto, Petal Auto, Rogers have older vehicles. I need stuff for my '73 F-100 truck.

    Re: Junk yards/ salvage yards?

    Fusil,
    I haven't looked in a few years but the price for steel scrap jumped waaay up and most of the junk yards cleaned house.
    I've been told most of it went to mainland China.

    One small yard one that comes to mind - Ray Riley's on East Hardy.

    Give this fellow a call:
    Petes Auto Works

    89 Jenkins Rd
    Moselle, MS 39459
    601-582-8250


    What year did they change in the early 70's?

    Also check with counter people at all of our local parts houses, it's amazing at what & who some of them know.

    Frank Ward at Wards Auto in Petal might know someone.
    Allen at A&B cycles also knows a lot of folks who keep private junk yards.

    My husband & I had to go all the way to Vancleave to get parts for his '76 Dodge truck a few years ago. I can't remember the guy's name...

    Theres 2 or 3 local private Mopar Salvage Yards. But i'd like to know about the one in Vancleave as all these fellows think there Mopars are made of Gold unless they are trying to buy yours.

    Hubby is asleep & he has to get up at 4:45 in the morning to go to work. I will ask him in the morning if he remembers the guy's name in Vancleave.

    Pete's son in law used to work for me. Last I called he said he didn't have any of my body style.
    I can use body parts from '73-'79. Some stuff all the way up to '96. Need a short box bed but a whole body would be nice.

    Have you tried following the Govt. Auctions? You'd be surprised at what shows up on them.

    Barry's U-Pull It in Gulfport. Hwy 49, I-10 towards New Orleans, the first or second exit on the north side of the Interstate. Cheap prices, usually a good selection of older vehicles. I fixed up a 79' Bronco about two years ago. They a bunch of 70's Ford Trucks. Take what tools you need, they don't loan. They did have wheelbarrows though.

    I called them a while back and they said they had three trucks that I was looking for. I told them I'd be there the following Monday to check them out. I called Monday morning to confirm everything before I left and they told me they crushed them. So, I haven't bothered with them any more.
    They also wouldn't sell me a front clip as a unit. They wanted to price out each individual part and it was stupid expensive.

    There's a gray 4x4 for sale on the 42 bypass between E&B Grocery & the school coming toward Petal. It's on the left if coming toward Petal. I didn't see a price and was in to big a hurry to stop. There's also a 71 for sale out on hwy 49 north right past the redlight where you turn to go to Macks...

    I've seen the 4x4 on 42. It was for sale about a year ago. They wanted too much then.

    Fish-Bait told me about one on 49 near Macks but he was unsure of the year. I need 73-77 with some stuff usable from 78-79.

    Stepdad had already tossed the number but my mother said she had gotten it out of the window at Smoky's in Petal & that they also had some sort of flyer inside on the counter.
