amco parts

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a source for the Amco parcel bar accessory for a 1972 240z? not interested in the bumper overriders or the passenger foot rest but like the idea of the parcel bar.

It's the cold midwest winter so I've been running out of items for my project car. The parcel bar is a bar that extends the length of the luggage deck behind the seats approx 5 inches high. It blocks items from sliding forward into the seats. And the reason for lack of posts was password memory fail. I'll be on here more often now that there is an iPad and android ap.

Ok so I know I said I wasn't interested in the bumper overriders but ended up buying a front on on eBay anyway. Not sure if I'll install it but will have the ability to change my mind later on.

Here is my update. So I have tracked down both bumper over riders (each uninstalled) and the parcel bar. Parcel bar installed today and looks great. Amco 240Z floor mats and the Japanese 240Z passenger footrest. Time to track down the US Amco branded passenger footrest. The wooden and leather wrapped shift knobs and door panel scuff guards. Going to hold off until spring for this search after the holidays.

Mind if I ask what you paid for your Parcel bar? I have an AMCO NOS parcel bar that came with my car (never installed) and I don't see myself ever using it and thinking about listing it.

@Jarvo I paid $150.00 shipped from Florida to Illinois.

I have now decided to track down the passenger foot rest made by Amco. I ended up with a Japanese version but think the US (Amco branded) might be a better day 2 add-on for a US sold car. Im going to keep the Japanese version as well but am looking to install an Amco One once I find it.

Thanks for the update, if I run across any Amco Foot Rests, I'll let you know. I do still have my parcel bar, and now that I have an idea of what they're going for I'll most likely list it.

I'm fairly sure I have both the Foot Rest and Scuff Plates NOS..but I'd have to dig though a lot of stuff stored away to find them. If you are going for the AMCO Collection - What you really need - is the AMCO Roof Rack.. I have an NOS example and I know where that is. {$375.00 plus shipping}. If I find the other parts I'll let you know..

FWIW,

@Carl Beck how much for the Amco Footrest Shipped to IL?

and how much for the scuff guards shipped? not sure I want them because I would have to drill into my door panels.

The roof rack is a little more than I am looking to spend right now for something I know I would never install.

I love the exterior roof and body lines of the car.

Found all of the above mentioned items but discovered one more that I need.

 

AMCO Throttle Guard Plate.   it's a flat metal plate that mounted to the tunnel on the right of the Throttle pedal so to not cause wear in the vinyl.  shaped like a trapazoid but don't have the exact dimensions.

One of my dealer parts catalogs has it listed as Amco part # 6535

ebay has a couple different ones for other cars but not the one I'm looking for.

any assistance would be appreciated.

Post a pic. It could be a bar for a 240Z or early 260Z. BTW, I have an NOS 240Z front bumper bar. Oh, and an NOS rear bumper bar.

The overriders bars came in various sizes and are year specific. Ex. A 72 won't fit a 73 because the spacing is different on the vertical overriders.

Don´t have pics right now, but every overrider i saw, the fastening holes align with the length of the bar, mine has a 90° bend for the fastening only (e.g like the amco rack). Its surely not a 240 one. Btw, there is an Armrest with a stitched Z on it I can buy. Anybody knows where this might come from?

 

found one, but seller also send me a wrong 2+2 driveshaft; I guess it might be a 77-78 one?
