I need some info from people who've been to these yards

http://www.burlingtonautoparts.net/ in Shirley, Ma
http://www.harborautoparts.com/ in Lynn, Ma
http://www.lowellautoparts.com/ in Lowell, Ma

I'm looking for parts and all these places list the car I'm looking for as being in stock, but I'd hate to drive that far and find out the place is just a warehouse and not a pick and pull. That's what Robertsons turned into as well as a couple others and I'd like to know before I go.

I figured I'd check with people first. Last time I called a junkyard the guy gave me an attitude like I was wasting his time and then didn't even have the parts that he told me he had "tons of" just laying around. That was North Providence auto for those interested.

This is not a pick & pull. They do have tons of parts.
I posted before, they are not shy, they know thier business & market value.
I didnt even bother looking fro Crovos bumper here as it would be to pricey.
You go in (or call in), order your part (& pay) then come back to get it.
There are exceptions. Motors rims etc where they have them stored already.
What do you need?
I dont mind spinning by there, just give me as much notice as possible

Lowell Used is a pick a part, kind of a small operation though. Another large one close by is Jack's in Billerica (u-pick), and Holland's in Billierica (u-pick). Ferris's in Salem , MA is a smaller place, has all cars listed (call them for availablity) and his priices are reasonable.

I'm lookin for the window trim around the front and back windows on a boxy without the vinyl top.

The front trim should be the same regardless of coupe, sedan, wagon and regardless of which make as long as it's a B/C body 1980+. That's the trim that I may not even need so I'm not in a hurry to find it.

The rear window trim needs to be from a 1980+ and come from a sedan without a vinyl top. That's where my search gets interesting. Most junkyards that warehouse don't keep that stuff, and most pick and pulls don't have non-vinyl cars.

I've recently seen boxies at Ferris's and Jack's. I think Jack's had a bigger selection, but I'd call them first.

There is a non vinyl Le sabre 80+ at jacks, no clue what the condition is. Pretty sure there's no motor or anything and its been there a while but it might still have what you need. Its a four door, white. There are also a few OCC's one thats not a woody, and one or MAYBE two of the early 90's ones. Not too many are in great shape and a few of those cars have been there since I was a a lot younger and my dad brought me in there for the first time, but they are there.

Oh, and plenty of caprices, but IDK about RMS/RMW


Hope that'll help a bit.

Will the front trim off a boxy Caprice wagon help? There was one near me.

I'll make it a point to give them a call and see what they got. That would be worth a drive.

I don't know if the front molding is the same between the 2 roof styles. The rear window trim is deffinetly a different piece if you have the vinyl top. That's mainly what I'm trying to track down. I'm hoping I can just reuse the front molding.

No problem, wear long pants and maybe bring a can of bee killer lol, that thing has some weeds around it if I remember correctly. The yard itself is kind of a toilet, including an old burnt pepperidge farm truck....rolls still in the back....

But anyway they have some cool stuff around especially in the back, like the bashed and beaten 77-79 boxy coupe near that bread truck. And some old beat up Volvo that my buddy went wide eyed for. It is worth the drive, but pricing on certain stuff can get a little weird. just a heads up.
