I get a laugh out of some of the listings on eBay. There are some sellers offering cheap, period accessories as if they were original factory parts. I have seen chrome headlight visors, generic rearview mirrors,old “curb feelers” and other such items presented as if they were designed and manufactured for a specific car. Are there buyers who really get fooled by the yokels who think all’s it takes to be a parts vendor is to go to a Pep Boys’ liquidation sale? The listings never mention that these parts are “one-size-fits-all” aftermarket cheapies that probably sat on the shelf for years because they were “junk” from Day 1. eBay has some good stuff, too, but you really got to be careful.
