A reliable standard since 1975
The first time I bought a part from Post Road Used Auto (PRUA) was
way back in 1975, when I was a sophmore in college. I had a 1968
Triumph TR-250 that I had bought in late 1974, and the brake master
cylinder (Mc) needed replacing within months of when I bought the car.
I called several of the usual parts stores, ForeighAuto Parts, and
a couple shops that specialized in sports cars in Brighton. The
situ... view moreation for the Mc in that Triumph was dire: The TR-250 was the TR-6
prototype, and everything in the two models, except body parts,
was the same.
After calling around, I came up with the shortest backlog
waiting time of 6 months for a TR-250/6 Mc. The cost for a rebuilt
ranged from $119 to $135. A parts maker had a kit on the market
for many of the car`s parts - TR-6 Mc kits had a minimum backlog
wait of 18 months.
"Well, there`s always the junkyards," I figured to myself. Linder`s was
my first call, and they had two Mcs in good shape and one in ok shape.
For the good ones, he wanted $110, and $45 for the other.
Then I tried Goldie`s, their Quincy shop had one from a 1972 TR-6,
and they wanted about $95. Living n Newton, I didn`t want to drive
to Quincy unless I had to.
And my laziness paid off.
I called Post Road in Marlborough, which I knew had a good
reputation among my motorhead friends. I said what I was looking
for, and hell`s bells, I had someone on the phone who knew his
sh** really well. Without even executing a search, he said, "Oh,
yea, I got a 1975 TR-6 that was torched. About 95 percent of
the parts are still good. I removed the firewall and the master cylinder
yesterday, and the cylinder is like new."
I took a deep breath and said, "How much?" He told me and I said,
"Well, if it`s like new, $135 isn`t bad, a brand new one from British
Leyland is $285, and a rebuilt is at least $120. He said, "No, I said
you can have that one I pulled out last night for $35."
Here I am 33 years later, and - every - single - time - I`ve needed
a part, if PRUA has it, the price is more than reasonable, and I am
batting 1.000 in quality and condition of the parts I`ve bought there.
