    East coast chevy ?

    I need to order several stock repop parts for my 55 nomad. These guys are said to be top notch. I dont have a paper catolog and there website is not user frendly. Are they user frendly over the phone to order old school way. Another words I need the sales person to guide me to the right parts to order.
    If they have a go to guy please advise.
    Thanks
    Rocky

    Maybe you can get better advice here on what to order, to make you feel more comfortable when you call them to place the order. What are you wanting to buy?

    They used to not have any kind of online presence except for a very plain home page. They are old school. They do have an excellent paper catalog.

    I would call and see how it goes, you'll probably be satisfied. Any problem, ask here or wait for them to send you a catalog.

    Thanks Guys I'll give them a shout today and see how it goes. They do have an online catalog but its hard to navigate. I found most of what I need short term but not all. I would go with the other trifive sources but there service and taking your money when their parts are 6 months back ordered has already given me a bad taste in the mouth with my first ever order placed with them.

    I'm buying a new tank (57 has vent), body mount kit, front clip hardware kit, brake line clips etc...... and maybe some factory a/c vents still not sure about that. I plan to order a catalog also for future use.

    I have meet them at the Turkey Rod Run, they have a large booth in the swap meet area. There were friendly and seamed to be knowledgeable without being too pushy. The owner definitely had the catalog memorized, deemed like more of a family type operation and that is where I like to spend my money if possible and prices looked competitive. Let us know how it goes

    Their on-line catalog seems to be an exact copy of their paper unit but you can't feel the pages or smell the print. Nothing wrong with "old school" though.

    Most of us need to keep East Coast Chevy in mind as a supplier because they have some items that others don't sell, plus on some items they are the source for the other retailers.

    My local guy sells quite a few of their products for the reasons Rick stated. I have no issues with the stuff I have bought from him.

    I'm happy so far. I called them explained I did not have a catalog and sent them and e-mail with the list of 13 items I did have part numbers for and described the rest of the parts I was needing. They were very friendly and the guy wanted to know every thing about what I was restoring. Now that I'm in their system and will have a catalog in hand should make future purchases go smoother... seems like they know their stuff on technical questions also which is a big plus in my book.
