I'll bet folks are aware of these guys, maybe not. ABC in Burlington, Iowa. 319-752-0203. I hope that is the correct number. Story is he was an AMC dealer who started a salvage yard after closing the dealership. He was primarily into AMC, but has darn near anything, from old Caddies to English Fords. I bought stuff from him for a 59 Olds, and he has the most tremendous collection of old cars for parts imaginable. He gave me everything I wanted from the dash area for 150. If you are having a hard time locating something, give it a call. He had stacks of some stuff, and brand new 232's crated, 6 of those at the time. I remember a stack of Rambler floor pans head high for a single model. This guy had hundreds of cars. Hope it helps someone. I think this all got started because he had a considerable inventory when he closed the dealership. There is a repair shop in Burlington with the same name or close, make sure you have the folks listed on Florence ave.

very cool and great to know. Those floor pans will hopefully help a lot a American and Rogue owners if that is what they are for.  Wish I'd known about them sooner...would have saved me a ton of time and trouble.

Wow, thanks for posting this thread, called these guys up and they seem to have quite a few parts for my 73' Matador, and the guy i talked to was really nice, not like most other yards ive called - like one auto yard i called in canada - guy was a total ass, i asked him if he had some rust free sheet metal for my car, said he did, the i asked him a price and he said quote : "Whel if your worried about the price im not even gonna bother talking to you" which he then hung up on me, which is no where near the case at all with ABC Salvage, and like i said really nice guys, and they seem very willing to help you out in any way they can - Talk about southern hospitality - lol - Plus they dont mind phone calls, they actually incourage them - ( 200 + cars to "Pick" from )
