also would like to find a old parachute pack just the pack for looks only for my street gasser thanks.
...... Empty chute packs usually go around $25, and complete chutes and packs around $60.....
Used parachutes or empty bags go for a little more around here. I was happy to find "exactly" what I was looking for last Spring at a local swap meet....... there's a guy on ebay that goes by Willysbuilder who sells empty packs for around $55-$60.....
Have you ever opened it yet John? You're in for a big surprise if you haven't! I had mine open twice to mount it, and I swear it's like trying to put 10 lbs. of squirming puppies in a 5 lb. bag! That big spring for the pilot chute is a real pain to get compressed and then get the flaps closed!Used parachutes or empty bags go for a little more around here. I was happy to find "exactly" what I was looking for last Spring at a local swap meet.
I paid $75 ..... it is "complete" ..... also came with a mount.... which I am not sure if I will use it or not.
It's the brand I wanted (Simpson) and has just the right amount of "patina"..... no holes or rips anywhere.
Thinking of mounting it in a recessed area in the rear hatch..... still in the planning (gotta think about it) stages with it and so many other things that will need to be done as time goes on.
