Restoration of a 1958 Bonneville is a difficult task, with very few reproduction parts available. I envy anyone who's restoring a 1957 Chevrolet for which countless reproduced parts are available! I found many N.O.S. (new old stock) original GM parts for my Bonneville which were purchased one at a time from numerous vendors over a period of several years. One especially notable source of N.O.S. parts is AUTOMOBILE ARCHIVES in Little Canada, Minnesota. Dennis and his brother Glen Wedll had a lot of the goodies I needed. Fair prices, prompt shipping. They specialize in N.O.S. parts for all GM cars.
M&M Carburetor Remanufacturing in Los Angeles is one of the best carburetor rebuilders in the USA, and they happen to be very reasonably priced. They've been in business since 1955. Carburetors such as Holley and Rochester that were originally gold colored are recolored to the factory appearance. (Too bad I didn't know about M&M when I had the secondary carbs on my Pontiac's Tri Power rebuilt - the rebuilder I used at that time didn't color those carbs properly). Every carb is tested and adjusted on an engine, which allows potential problems to be corrected before delivery to the customer. A nice bonus is that minimal adjustment (if any) will need to be made once the carburetor is installed. M&M turns their carbs around in one day, and will gladly ship anywhere.
