Is there any other place in Canada to buy C3 parts from other than Corvette Depot ?

I’ve dealt with both, great guys no bs. James usually crosses the border to pick up his orders if not in stock. Both these guys often work together.

You could add Corvette Corral to the list. I have found Corvette Central or Rock Auto (U.S. suppliers) to be quite good.
Depending on what you are looking for I have also been able to get things like brake components, air filters fuel filters etc.
quite easily at local NAPA parts outlets. Canadian Tire - don't bother. Corvette Depot - do your homework, I have, for certain parts found their prices quit high.

I Have bought parts from Corvette depot in Canada and Corvette central in the USA. Let me tell you, Corvette central is fantastic and cheaper after dollar conversion. No duty or customs BS, arrives in 2-3 days and UPS shipping is usually around $40. Corvette depot is more expensive, takes way longer to arrive and they usually dont have what you need. I ALSO FIND THAT THE PARTS FROM CORVETTE CENTRAL ARE OF HIGHER QUALITY. IMO

Thanks for the info.
How do you get the parts into Canada from the US without paying duty or customs ? UPS , from what I understand charges brokerage.

I bought thousands from them a few years ago

Exchange trailing arms, steerioids R&P kit, seat covers, rear spring mount parts, countless bushings and small parts.

visa online, was only ever billed the parts and visa added the exchange. They used to have “free shipping to Canada” deals, but haven’t seen one in a few years now.
