The closest thing I have seen is these:
Mustangs Unlimited - The Premier Source for Mustang, Shelby and Cougar Parts and Accessories

I hope they work since I am missing one of mine.

Tim,

Nothing at the moment. But I can tell you every single part I have ever ordered was back ordered. Sometimes I can wait, sometimes I go with a piece of junk in the meantime. Everything I have waited for was perfect and no complaints at all about the product. I just have bad luck.

Did you order them from CJP? Got lots of Drake parts on my Stang, they all were shipped immediately. The supplier I ordered them from once in 7 years back ordered!

Bare housing for the high-profile rally-pac (as is offered for the low-profile), maybe chrome bezels for the early 5TMZ and 5TPZ radios?

I got one, how bout being open to the public. It'd be nice to go directly to you guys for pick up, instead of going thru an additional supplier at a marked up price

Another plus to going direct is I knowing that I would be getting a Scott Drake item. Many times I expect to get SD but I end up with a no name brand part when in the past, the part has been SD from the same supplier.

There are costs associated with a company going direct marketing. Whereas Drake probably has a couple of dozen vendors at best to ship to, he'd have to add more employees to receive, post, and ship for thousands of orders. then deal with lost orders, damaged orders, warranty returns, etc on a much larger scale.

Depending on the efficiency of the direct marketing, there might not be much savings realized if any.

Slim, ya... it was like 90% CJPP. Not a big deal... just annoying in the moment. Good example I have is the ICVR for the back of the gauge cluster... tried to get the SS one offered under the SD name... back ordered for a month, and then the date kept pushing back another 2 weeks at a time. CJ's only line was they can't control the supplier... ended up going someplace else for a normal version. My gas gauge isn't that accurate, but I need something. Dash panels were the same thing, but not as neccesary so I waited. I have a few more examples, just bad luck... I don't stop getting them, I just assume there's gonna be a long wait.

Check the classified ads here. I've had one posted for sale for almost a month or more. Rally Pack housing.

I agree w that. Im more talking about being able to walk in and buy the item there. I'm not too far from them

How about that U-shaped bracket in the trunk of the 65-66 fastbacks....the one that holds the rubber insulator that the torsion spring/bar goes through on the trunk lid. When my car got painted, the guy threw the piece out when he couldn't figure out where it went. Right now I have a bracket for electrical conduit holding the insulator in place.

Some vendors do allow walk up sales, or sell direct, but they have to charge full retail in order not to circumvent the retail vendor's profit margin.
