Part Selection

Hey all have been trying to nail down just what does NOS stand for when advertised in car parts. See quite often but really sure what it means.

NOT ORIGINAL STOCK has also been used. It means it is not an original mfgr part but is exactly the same as the stock part. NOS traces its beginnings to the sheet metal, trim aftermarket.

BTW....NOS is a much misused term.

It's amazing how much NOS stuff is out there................probably much more than originally made.........

NITROUS OXIDE SYSTEMS. Can't forget good ole Mike Thermos.

Your correct that there is more NOS than original around not. Just look at all of those 1969 camaro convertables and 1957 chevies.
