I am looking for who makes the best reproduction fan belts for the 1962 327/300 engine. I came across gastanks.com and they are selling reproduction belts. Are there more than one company making these belts?

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

Show Cars sells reproduction original belts(that do not have ribs). I have used the reproduction belts that they sell. I am not sure who makes the belts that they sell.

I stopped using original reproduction "original belts" that are not ribbed on either side on my frame off restorations.

Why would anyone use reproduction belts when you can buy Gates belts everywhere?

Junky is doing a 100 % original restoration of his 62, and only reproduction belts without any ribs in them are original.
Gates belts have ribs on the bottom, belts on 1962’s from the factory “did not have ribs”
