<VV> Organization of Corvair Parts

I've got a 44' 18 wheeler trailer with both sides covered in drawers to the top.  I keep most of my parts there.  I have a garage that is about 10x24 that I keep engines, seats, transaxles & suspension parts in that aren't stored in my vans.  The trailer is really the only organized place.  The drawers are just labeled carbs, distributors, flywheels etc.
I still don't seem to have a lot of things I need such as a '61 grill bar, A/C crank pulley, early A/C rear engine sheet metal, wagon vent window and early bumpers.

I have been considering the same thing as I am building a new garage that will free up space in my shop for parts storage.  After some consideration I concluded that it would be smarter not to reinvent the wheel.  I plan to label all of my parts with Clark's part numbers--this includes used parts.  They then can go on the shelf in numerical order, and a copy of Clark's catalog will be attached to the shelf with a small chain [so that it doesn't leave]. There will be some illogic in the grouping of parts based on function or use, but in time I will probably memorize many of the part numbers and be able to find them quickly.  An added advantage is that it It will be obvious to my heirs that the stash could be easily liquidated with one phone call...

Consumable parts, e.g. oil filters, would still be shelved in the garage along with similar items I have on hand for other vehicles and equipment.
