Been looking for a 1979 OEM air intake hose for over a year, countless messages and hours searching... and finally found one! Who knew how hard it would be to find some of these 2nd gen items!

What part for your ride has been super hard to find??

Glad you found one. Did you get it from an individual, ebay, a junkyard, or was it through one of the retail suppliers like the graveyard or LMC Truck? Mine is a bit newer, so not quite as hard to find parts for it yet.

Awesome, glad to hear you located the part you needed @Lvspark! I know the feeling and how excited I have been in the past when finally located a part I have been scoring websites and ads for weeks, months, years!

I have a 96 Eddie Bauer and the previous owner had broken the wood grain dash trim piece which of course is disc. Little did I know this was the "holy grail" of 96 Bronc parts, lol. I finally found one on EBay which is where I hunt for a lot of the disc items I need. Now in the hunt for the gauge cluster trim with defrost and push button 4x4 so is proving challenging...but what makes finally finding it all the more sweet! :p

Was from a individual on FB group that is going restomod on his 79'. If you post a pic of your hard to find item maybe one of us will see it and think of this thread!

Other hard to find item I been searching for was vintage floor mats, found some the other day that matched my tu-tone! Lucky find after 2 months of searching!
