Do they do resto work? I've been to Mustang etc. They've got great selection of used parts as well as repops. He also will deal with you on price, even for repops. Mustang Country, I've seen them working on cars, always thought they were their own personal cars. Never saw a sign there saying they do resto work. Their parts are more expensive than NPD or others. So, I wonder if that's indicative of their shop rates.
Good luck on finding a shop. When I wanted to do paint and body work, the prices were outrageous. A place in Torrance wanted 30K
It had already been taken all apart ready for blasting. Just a basic coupe. He had a mag article on his desk about his place. like that was going to impress me. 30k for a basic coupe. Yeah right.
I ended up getting the welding done and the paint. Took the next few months putting her together myself.
How much resto work do you want the shop to do?
I would talk to Mustangs Etc..& start to get a feel for the price you are going to have to pay. I have a feeling you will change your mind once you realize how expensive it is going to be. There is another place in the valley but the name escapes me at the moment. If I think of it I will let you know. Good luck.
Years ago I went to Mustangs Etc. in Van Nuys.....I stood in the office area for five minutes.....The owner literally ignored me....Guess I caught him at a bad time or something but he never said hi or acknowledge me so I never went back.....

I just started going to Mustang Country in Paramount, CA. They do work on customer cars and also do upholstery work. I had them reupholster the two front bucket seats and bench seat from my 66 GT. Their website said that they only install items purchased from their store, however, when I talked to a sales person named Juan, he said that they would install my Pony Interior Kit that I had purchased at Cal Mustang.
They charged me $175 in labor which I thought was reasonable considering that the seats were original and they cleaned up the hardware, painted the tracks & frame, installed the new deluxe foam, burlap that I had brought, etc.
While I was at it, I also purchased their headrest kit and had them install it. I am very satisfied with the results.
