There's still many thousands of almost any given model/year left.  The perception that we're "running out" of everything is because the supply of cheap-but-restorable cars and parts is drying up. 

Try car-hunting with $30K to spend, or try fender-hunting with $1200 to spend:  Suddenly you'll start finding a lot more of everything.  The surviving cars/parts used to be in a wide range of conditions, but they're all gradually being either entirely parted-out or turned into big-dollar gorgeous restos.

it's all speculation, there's no way to give a definite answer for a broad question like that. that's what registries like the 2 chris's have put together are for. to try to get us one step closer to guessing what is left...  i mean anyone can shoot a guess.. umm. i think there are 10,000 66's, 2,000 67's, 20,000 68's, 18,000 69's, and 12,500 70's left. that's my guess. does anyone believe me?? all i know is there are a lot out there, but not nearly as many as there were 10 years ago. the parts/low end projects have either been used up or are being restored..

Travis is helping to keep them on high numbers Cheesy Grin

Count a 74 more here, and maybe 50 3rd gens more around where I live. But those don't count on USA production numbers.

CHARGER_FAN... i think that is more than 3/4... maybe 7/8

Nacho, the hood, engine, tranny & most of the interior is missing too. That's where my 3/4 guess came from. icon_smile_big

That's exactly why I can't make myself part it out any further. bawling
By the way, that's how I bought it. I didn't do that hack job. It was originally a 383 4-speed SE 500 too.

I say a 20% survival rate.  No reason, I just like the sound of it.  Grin

I forget the exact number but off the top of my head, 66 was just under 40,000 units and 67 was around 15,000.

1966 did that with only a part year of production too btw.  The car wasn't introduced until January of 1966.  Unlike today where they bring a car out 6 months before regular production and call it a years worth.  (come to think of it, the very first Mustang did that too)

I think it would be interesting if we some how had the sales figures of the 10 most commonly needed parts that are repoped and that people would order. That would give some indication on whats out there.

You're wrong AK, you know as well as everyone else that there are 3,627.  You're just trying to create panic so the value of yours will go up.

What GM car was it that had that happen,?  and they had a meet for them and more showed up than were produced and the clones werent allowed in the show and people started getting pissed.  I'm thinking it was either Yenko Camaros or 427 Corvettes..?.... ??
