Does anyone know of any Mustang salvage yards in the Twin Cities area?

Here ya go...

I am St. Michael working on my 65 Mustang Hardtop - whereabouts are you?
I've been to the French Lake parts yard before - it's huge, so call ahead first and see if they even have what you need. They didn't have any 65s when I was there a few months ago.

Good Luck!

Best yard around is Baxter's in Ham Lake I believe. It is not a traditional yard though. Proud of their stuff. You tell them what you need and they go get it for you. I have not been there in a few years and have recently heard that they may be out of business. Worth a call though!

Baxter's is out of business in Oak Grove for a couple of months now. He has moved somewhere in 'Sconi, but I'm not sure where. Unless you get really lucky, there isn't much to choose from around here. The Mustangs in even the small, obscure yards are VERY picked over. At least those that I've found.

Yeah, I had tried calling Baxter's and got a forwarding number that no one answered. Bummer.

There is a Mustang salvage yard in Tyler, Mn in the western part of the state. I'm gonna check it out this weekend and I will get back to you. I was told that they had 85 or 90 Mustangs from 65 to 71 and that their prices were very reasonable.
