John Hertog and I did this same thing years ago. John bought entire inventory of old mom and pop auto parts. We pulled out all the Mopar stuff. And sold the brand X stuff to a auto parts supplier who specialized in obsolete parts.He came and took all the brand x stuff.

Subject: [Chrysler300] Clearing out an old parts store
I need to gather a little collective wisdom. A 47 year old auto parts supplier is going out of business in our small town after the recent death of its founder. And the family will soon be selling out the inventory.
I talked to a family member this morning and I believe that before an inventory buyer hauls everything off in bulk, I may be given a chance to go through and look for prizes in the back of shelves and in the corners of the basement. This is a small, old-timey shop, and I have no idea what I may find there, but I get to play the role of "picker".
What advice can I gain from you guys regarding hard-to-find parts that I should be on the lookout for in a place like this? For example fuel pumps (I know they have at least some), or ceramic element fuel filters.
