Dang.

His brother lived in my hometown & I bought 340 manifolds from Ben in the pre-internet days to replace the headers that were on my T/A, so that was 30 years ago.

Condolences to his family & friends.

Thanks Scott. I've known Ben for 20 years. Never an issue, always positive transactions. Visiting his Battle Ground Washington residence was always interesting. Lost a lot of weight in the last 10 years or so.
RIP Ben, thank you for your contribution to Mopar.

Longtime seller of Mopar parts in the Seattle area. Asked top dollar (or close to it)
But it was his business and I always considered him up front. Manufactured a repro shaker set up.

For years I thought he was of Native Amercan heritage...I was wrong....Eastern Indian.

Good guy, RIP

Wow! I bought a few parts from him a few years back. He had some AWESOME cars in his garage. He was well known for having excellent quality parts and asking top dollar.

RIP Mr Snobar

Sad news.

I first met Ben in the early 90's, he was selling Gene Gregory's Shaker hood stuff. I met him through Gene.

I had just started reproducing the aluminum 4 speed shifter brackets and was wholesaling them to Ben (among others).

RIP Ben. angel

He lives in Tumwater, Washington, near Olympia. Sad to see another one go. This hobby is aging fast.

Has he lived at the same place all this time?

As long as I've known him which is about 10 years. Probably a lot longer. Know he was in Bellingham in the 80's.

I met him June 1984, he was deeply rooted in the Mopar hobby then. Got to know him and was good to see around. He started making some needed repo parts. He didn't sell for top dollar, he set the top dollar.
