Apart from the Model T, Model A and WW2 Willys jeeps, are there any other cars that have a large variety of new parts still being made?

Mopar. It's not like the abundance we're used to with Model T's, of course, but there is some new stuff.

EVERY part is made for 1920's vintage Bentleys from complete chassis, crankcases, front and rear axles, gear boxes, there is no part not reproduced, the same applies to Type 35 Bugattis

That's very interesting David. Is there really that much of a market for vintage upper end car parts?

You can buy a completely reproduced pre - teens Stanley steam car. Every part is available.

Probably the most practical pre - 1910 car to restore and drive is a curved dash Oldsmobile. They were the most produced car in the United States prior to the introduction of the Model T Ford.

Henry , absolutely there is a market for parts for these cars, also added should be Alfa Romeo sports cars from the early 30's attached link for one Bentley part supplier, there are many more out there http://www.vintagebentleyparts.co.uk

I know you said "cars" but the Cushman scooter has almost everything being reproduced. They are pre WW2 as well as later.

Prices and quality of available Bugatti and Bentley parts certainly differs from Model T parts..

Besides Cushman, for both HD and Indian most parts are available, for 101 scouts about everything except crank cases last time I looked - through expensive.

Since I saw Cushmans mentioned I thought I would post a picture. These are model 53A Cushmans. My fathers is the red one and mine is the blue one I restored.

Overall old Ford cars and trucks have the most parts available. Chev's and Mopars are getting close though.

I believe Dennis Carpenter reproduces a complete 40 Ford Coupe body less chassis.

Old Ford tractors and parts are readily available also.
