Good Experiences with wreckers?

Are there any wreckers out there that you have been very pleased with?
(range/selection/price etc)
the one thing that i can't seem to find is any one commenting on wreckers, i'm finding it hard to get a wrecker with decent selection of late model falcon parts.

Re: Good Experiences with wreckers?

I used to work for a wreckers.
I dont know if it was because my boss was an absolute tight ass but anything that was good he used to charge an arm and a leg for!
People would bring in old xy, xa etc falcons with straight as bodies and he'd give em 50 bucks and just pile em up in the back with a fork lift...my jaw would drop.
if it wasnt an FC holden he didnt care!
But yeah its you should find a wrecker that specialises in Falcon parts, usually they have good stuff.

Re: Good Experiences with wreckers?

I went to an all ford wreckers the other week, they had about 30 wrecked au, a couple of ba and a few e-series falcons. i picked up stacks of stuff for my au, fairmont stuff, LSD, Tickford badges. Walking through the workshop i saw about 20 engines i6 and v8, every body panel for late model falcons, engine componets and interior, well pretty much everything. So they have a very good range, alot to choose form, and price is ok. The place is called:
