Mario's Cars and Parts for Sale

Postby qwik510 » 23 Apr 2017 06:01

As you may have heard, Mario Birardi passed away back in January. Mario was a longtime 510 enthusiast and a collector of 510 cars and parts. He was well known on the East Coast, USA.

His obsession with these cars sent him all over the country dragging home orphans that needed saving. Either to fix up and sell or to part out, Mario loved the 510s and was determined to help keep as many on the road as possible. He had planned to set up a 510 parts business to occupy his time in retirement, but sadly, he didn't get to it.

His family has enlisted my help in making sure these parts get into the hands of other 510 lovers and not the scrapyard. I made a trip up to Morrisville, PA yesterday and met with his wife Kathy and his brother Tony.

I met Tony at the storage yard where the cars and parts were. There were two 40' tractor trailers and 8 510s, two wagons, four 4 doors and two 2 doors. Several of the cars are already spoken for. His brother, Tony, is hoping to revive a solid 2 door that is there. The rest will be offered up for sale at some point in the near future. They are still trying to find the titles to see which ones have papers and which do not.

Onto the parts. Wow, there were a lot of parts. And lots of other stuff too. Mario never threw anything away so many items from his Family's restaurant business and his printing business were stored in the trailers along with so many 510 parts. It was pretty overwhelming to say the least. Unfortunately, it was not well organized so it was hard to dig through it all. I felt like I was on an episode of American Pickers. There were so many boxes, crates, tubs and shelves full of parts. Body panels - hoods, doors, trunk lids, fenders, airdams, cowls, etc. interior stuff - door panels, trim, seats, dash stuff, gauge clusters, seat belts, etc. Engines and more engines. I think there were 8-10 complete L16 engines and several shelves full of L series cylinder heads. There were many transmissions too. Mostly 4 speed but a couple of 5 speeds too. Exhaust headers and manifolds and Carbs. Way too much for me to list.
And lots of rare and NOS stuff too.

I spent most of the day going through all the stuff and pulled out many of the parts I felt would sell fast and not be too hard to ship. I am trying to help Kathy put together some money to pay for Mario's final expenses, etc.


If you read this so far, thank you.

This is the first offering of parts. There will be much, more to come. Please do not ask me about anything that is not listed here. The parts are 3 hours from me so I don't have easy access. I will be going back up there in a few weeks to dig through more.

I have taken pictures of the parts currently available and have posted them on a Photobucket Album.

Sorry but Photbucket sucks and they mixed up all the pics when I uploaded them. You will need to look through them as they are not in order.

......I wondered who's parts these were :cry: . RIP Mario!

He bought a number of the NOS sheetmetal parts from me years ago.......he was really collecting some great NOS parts, wanted to reproduce them, but man that is a big project, as Dave P has found out! He also gave me two very rough 4drs that were in Iowa some years ago......he had purchased five cars from the farmer, hauled three of them back to NJ, leaving the two worst cars there, called me up and said "Go git 'em, if you want 'em!". He was a good guy!! I just sent a hauler, didn't care WHAT they were! :wink:

Dave, do you drive up & stay, or turn around come back to MD same day??

TJ,

Yes, Mario was a good guy and a major 510 lover. I found some of the NOS sheet metal already. I drove my car up the first time so I was limited on what I could bring back. I'll take the truck and trailer next time.

I go up and back in the same day. It was a 14 hour day when I went last week.
Enjoy The Ride!

Damn, sucks to hear this. I use to browse these forums for awhile. But not in a long time. I had the pleasure of meeting him. I drove to him he lives just outside of Philly..? or somehwhere like that. (I am not too far away in North Jersey) I needed a new windshield as mine was cracked pretty good. He had a whole yard full of scrap cars. He let me have choice and cut out any windshield of my picking. I dropped off my old L motor too I believe it was you Quik who bought it? My car that motor came out of is still the project its always been. SR20DET pain in my ass. Lol. anyways if you need a hand loading boxes or whatever i'm not too far away and I can maybe help just depends on when ofcourse !
