The yellow 1949 Chevrolet Car on the front of the building is the real thing. The original headlights still work as do the original park lights. The original horn also works, and is controlled by a push button under the counter. Come by for a visit and you can honk the car horn yourself.

 

 

 

GREAT RACE Vintage Car Rally

 

Vintage Car Rallies Fifth Avenue Antique Auto Parts has been involved with vintage car rallies every year since 1989.  First it was the Great Race in which pre 1949 cars travel 4500 miles across the United States in just two weeks. Then in 2007 and again in 2010 we added the Peking to Paris Rally where pre 1960’s cars are driven 9000 miles across the desert from Peking China to Paris France in just 8 weeks.

 

Why We Do It… We have been involved with the premier vintage vehicle cross- country rally races for more than 20 years. We do it to prove to ourselves and to you our customer that we are the best at what we do. All of the parts and products we offer have first been tested in a Great Race environment. They endure more hard use and rough treatment in one rally event than most antique vehicles will experience in a lifetime. But we know if what we design and build survives in that environment it will survive a normal antique car environment.

  

The Benefit To You The Customer… With over 20 years of hands-on experience preparing cars for Vintage Car Rallies, Randy has learned first hand what it takes to make a vintage car reliable. Best of all… Randy is more than willing to share his knowledge and experience with you so that you can get the most from your vintage vehicle. He had done if for the winning Great Race Teams, he has done it for the movie studios, he has even done it for the Queen of England…and he will do it for you!

 

Now you Know… At first glance our parts might seem a little more expensive than the other vendors. But it does not take long to realize the difference in quality and engineering that make the Fifth Avenue parts stand head and shoulders above the rest. It is one thing to say your parts will make a car reliable…it is another to go out and actually do it, then deliver the proof!

Lloyd Dahman of Chestnut Hill, Mass., entered the 2010 Peking to Paris Race with his 49 Cadillac. Lloyd explains…. "I sought Randy out based on his reputation for knowing how to prepare antique cars for a rally like this. The word among the antique car rally people is that Randy knows what he is doing and the specialty parts he builds for these cars will exceed your expectations. I researched Randy and his company further and found out he was successful in the 2007 Peking to Paris Race…I knew I had found my man."

Gobi DesertLast year (2007) we did the Peking-to-Paris motor challenge with our 1950 6-cyl. Plymouth, equipped with your famous 6V alternator. During more than 10.000 very hard miles through the Gobi desert and Siberia/Russia we had no problems with your equipment - thank you! For the next long distance rally we plan to restore a 1951 Cadillac Series 62 Sedan that we want to convert to 12V. We will be contacting you for the 12-volt conversion parts we need.
 Best greetings from Switzerland.

Just a note to say THANK YOU for explaining how to read the label on modern engine oil containers and why the zinc additive is necessary for older engines. Shortly after I read the tech tip on your website one of our car club members experienced just what you described. 470 miles on a freshly overhauled Flathead Ford engine and his cam was flat. He made the mistake of using modern energy conserving engine oil without the zinc additive. Made me a believer. I am enclosing payment for another case of your zinc additive to protect all of my antique engines.
