Default Eckler's parts

Does anyone know who makes parts for Ecklers, or where they get them? Are they a reseller of Danchuk parts?

Ecklers makes NOTHING, They are a reseller that gets parts from the same places all the other vendors get them from. Yes they are one of hundreds of sellers that carry the Danchuk line. Everything they sell can be purchased elsewhere.

Eckler`s bought a Ford reproduction company a while back and are reproducing some parts.They have a local to them cast and chrome company that reproduces many of their emblems including Chevrolet ones and acually use Gold in their plating.Those emblems and designs are owned by Eckler`s and can only be bought through Eckler`s.

I think Eckler's has some unique kits that Randy Irwin came up with back in the day....Too bad he isn't there anymore....Not sure where they source the parts from.

Here's one:https://www.classicchevy.com/chevy-e...1955-1957.html

They were still manufactured by a third party. And those deals are not unique any more if they were desirable.

I can't see where that would be a wise investment since there are at least 2 other major manufacturers of 55-57 Chevrolet emblems, Not a surprise though given some of their business practices.

I worked for Eckler's, they manufacture absolutely nothing. They use the same suppliers every Tri Five parts retailer uses, which is mainly imported parts. Do a search on here about Eckler's, the negatives far out weigh the positive comments.

Disagree with this part of your reply.

And desirable would be a subjective term.

This is just one example:https://www.classicchevy.com/chevy-l...957.html#close

Well you may have got me. But Randy Irwin didn't do that one.

It's also ridiculous to think that anyone at Ecklers is paid to invent products like this or make them in house. Someone came up with this and marketed it to Ecklers.

Also this is not truly a 55-57 specific product.

Do you have one and rely on it? Does it work when you run out of gas?
