  • 2nd Gen: taillights, t-tops, fender flares

    Hello everyone, my first post here. I have a few 2nd gen parts that I'm considering letting go to make room at home. I would also like any feedback about pricing them fairly. If anyone is truly interested I will take pics.

    1) Taillights circa 1979. Moderate condition with a really hard to find crack in one lens. I don't expect these are worth a lot.

    2) Hurst T-tops with the inner and outer frames that mount to the roof. I do not have the little clamps that hold the frame assembly together. Moderate+ condition. Difficult to value. Besides the matched pair I have a 3rd T-top as well.

    3) Wheel well flares circa 1979 (set of four). I painted these but never did put them on my car. I understand these are pretty hard to find (though non-OEM replacements may be available).

    Welcome to the site!

    The first question I'd have regarding all the parts - Camaro or Firebird?

    I'd say go ahead and post pictures, should help in determining a price. The Hurst T-tops are a bit rare, so that will influence the price, but that also limits those who are in the market for them, since most are Fishers.

      They are Firebird parts. The taillights are specifically Firebird. Did Camaro's have Hurst T-Tops? Pretty sure the flares I have are same as 79 TA.

        Okay, that's what I was thinking, based on your avatar picture.

        And yes, Camaro's did - though they're extremely rare. The Firebirds had T-tops a few years earlier than the Camaro, and by the time they came out on the Camaro, they had almost entirely shifted over to Fisher doing the T-Tops in-house. But yeah, there are some out there on Camaros - if you ever see one, though, that's basically a unicorn.

          I took photos of the taillights and posted them here https://imgur.com/a/FGfglQ8
          They are in the same condition as I bought them in the late 70s. I'm hoping to find a good home for them.

          The rest of the parts are in storage, hope to take pics soon.

            Looks like these are going for about $30-50 a piece on eBay, but I have no idea if that's actually good pricing or not. I'd say yours look to be in pretty good shape - easily refinishable, for sure.

              They're in reasonably good condition, I know one lens has a small crack but sometimes darn if I can find it. I'm not looking for top dollar, $30 for both to a good home would be win-win. Located near Fraser.
