Does anyone have any favourite places to purchase parts for classic Mustangs from overseas? Or maybe better still, are there any that you avoid?

Regards,

John

l have found "Mustangs Unlimited" very good to deal with.

Matt Lingerfelt - best to email him attn:Mustangs Unlimited

JMHO - the only thing to watch out for is to make sure you request a shipping quote, before you pull the trigger.

They DO tend to get a better deal with DHL Express..... and here within 7-10 days usually!!

keep hearing others here in Australia can provide just as good deals - but yet to experiance this !!

in fact , one that l rang who also hangs on this site from time to time - could'nt even be bothered returning my message ...which says everything in my opinion.

Good luck

Cheers

I have bought parts from Summit without issue. Similar to the site that Happy One posted - it always arrives fast. I have found that an approximate shipping price is about 20% of the order cost.


Additionally; i have found that Summit also now offer shipping via eParcel (i think thats its name from memory). The cost seems to be significantly cheaper.


If you are not buying engine parts - Steph (Blkpny) www.custommustangs.com.au is always worth a look. Shipping is from within Aus - so its quick and Steph is a forum member so he is always around. Cant go wrong!


Additionally; an "Autopro" Superstore just opened up near me. I was really, really impressed. Usually i go down to the local supacheap/repco and there is a 17 year old kid behind the counter that has a vauge interest in cars but obviously likes to combine the duties of checkout chick.

Anyway, Autopro. Walked in, immediately greeted; guy asks what i was after (coolant and some interior cleaner) leads me to the coolant section; asks what car, explains the difference between the types - doesnt put the hard sell on any of the items - i select and make a movement to pick up the bottles - he immediately jumps in with a "i got it mate" and he takes it to the counter and points me in the direction of the interior products. So i select some armorall and take it to the counter and he asks if i had used the product before. Said probably, i was just after something to do the once over on the interior with. He takes me beck to the section, explains that there are better products for your money than armorall and hands me another product. Backs it up with that it contains no harmful contaminate, no greasy silicone and made in the USA. Same size bottle, cheaper than the armorall.

Paid for said items, he put the coolant in the boot of the mustang and i drove away completely happy. Brilliant customer service.


For the Tl;Dr crowd: Autopro just opened a a store and impressed me. Wont go back to Supacheap/Repco again.

for O.S. purchases , Mustangs Unlimited - CJ Pony Parts - NPD are ones I've used & quite happy. A great deal more available over there that will also satisfy. Here in Aus, CustomMustangs - Capital Classics are 2 I've used , but there are at least another 5-6 around.

Depends on what you want - if purchasing from www.ebay.com make sure you ask for USPS First Class Airmail, not Priority airmail unless it's heavy and small.

NPD is good, West Coast Classic Cougars are good, found Mustangs Unlimited got my orders wrong too often. For CJ or big-block parts & info then Mansfield Mustangs are Fabulous, and the pictures are an art form.
