Junkyard F-bodies

SO this thread is for when one finds an F-body in the junkyard. Pics or a good description is best and of course location. I spend a lot of my time scouring salvage yard inventories around the country but my home base is Central Texas so I will start here hopefully adding to other regions as I find cars.

Hope this helps people find those rare parts. I am not currently pulling parts, but that could change.

Located at Austin Wrech-A-Part in Austin, Tx. currently:

1990 V6 RS


1983 305 4bbl

Re: Junkyard F-bodies

I think this is a great idea!
I'm looking forward to seeing what turns up.
I'm looking for an AC high side hard line off of a serpentine belt V8 car.

I'll keep my eyes open. Austin Wrench-A-Part just crushed a 1992 Firebird with a V8, I grabbed the serp belt brackets for my Sierra but all the A/C parts had been there.

The Houston-Wallisville LKQ also has a 1991 Camaro but no pics and no info.

You would not BELIEVE the cars I see junked on these sites, makes you sick.

I'll start a thread in that region and post what I find.

Re: Junkyard F-bodies

I don't think I have ever found an air cleaner assembly on a junkyard car. I don't know if the employees take them off or what. Perhaps it is the first thing people take, but I've looked at plenty of F-bodies and never seen any. Heck, I hardly ever find the carburetors either!

Re: Junkyard F-bodies

The complete air cleaner was there when I took these pics but laying on the ground, I put it in the trunk and my friend Texas Mike Massey bought it as a wall hanger over the weekend when he grabbed a few other things for his 1982 Z.

That's a small bit, I will keep my eyes open as a few have come through with 5 speeds. Do you happen to know what years will work?

Pretty sure 90-92 works. Not sure about others. Keep me posted!

I would actually be interested in a complete WC T5 from those same years as well.

Re: Junkyard F-bodies

Austin LKQ on Congress. Some lunkhead junked this 1989 Formula 350 t-top for a bad fuel pump. I nabbed the intake hoses with MAF for $5 (they love me at this yard), when I got there someone had grabbed the TPI intake but it was still a mostly complete WS6 car and fairly well equipped. It had a perfect dash pad, 5 band EQ cassette, co2 canister, 140MPH cluster and gray t-top shades - I got all that and the nice WS6 center caps, sorry.. There were 2 sets of tops in it, a cracked Lexan set and the glass set, extra taillight, fairly nice t-top headliner,

Re: Junkyard F-bodies

Are those 16 or 15 inch rims? Always liked those style factory wheels.

16" WS6 wheels, they were in awesome shape too minus the center caps (a member with a 1988 Formula 350 called me and asked me to get them while I was there).

Re: Junkyard F-bodies

Checked out an 85 Z-28 (v8, auto, grey interior) at Pick and Pay Auto in Beggs, Oklahoma, south of Tulsa, today. Hood, rear end, TPI intake, and dash pad are already gone. Windshield is cracked and the left door is bent. The rest of the body is pretty straight, the rear spoiler and most of the ground effects are there and intact. Nose is decent. The car has only been there since 03/25/2018... Should be available for a while...

Re: Junkyard F-bodies

Clearly I need to take a roadtrip west. . .these cars DO NOT show up in my local junk yards. There's been 1 in the past 2 years that I've found.

I know Virginia (Washington DC area) is a long way from Mississippi.

I have a factory spare that has been taking up space in my shed for long enough.

From 1988 Sport Coupe.

I'd say "very good" condition. Not mint, or even excellent.

Looks like nobody ever drove on it. I don't think I want to put it back in my car. My car is headed kind of in the Frankenstein direction, so any notions of "correct" components has fallen by the wayside.

Shipping something of this sort is way too much hassle, and probably too expensive, even if I had a perfect box with everything labeled and ready to go.

I would let it go cheap if you can pick it up, or if you can get somebody you know in my area to pick it up for you.

16 miles west of the White House.

LKQ Pick Your Part - Houston Wallisville

Had an '86 Iroc come in on May 1st. I have no idea what is left of the interior, you would have to just take a look.
