Found Northern California Classic Mustang Shop - parts and repairs
Last week I was in Redding and discovered Shasta Mustang Supply (530) 244-4504 (Dave Taylor). This is the quentisential hole-in-the-wall shop jammed with vintage parts floor to ceiling. It is a one man shop that has been in the same location for 20 years.
I saw a headliner installed by the guy and it came out perfect. Have no other knowledge of the quality of his work. However, he has a slew of FORD! not repro - parts - used but clean fenders, doors, hoods, consoles, fold down seats, door glass, carbs, front spindles, motors, etc. He must have 50 carbs stacked in a heap in one corner of his shop. Touring the shop was like stumbling into the classic barn find. The guy is interesting in a weirdness sort of way - old codger with long grey hair, snaggle toothed, skinny, and maybe not living altogether in the present. Nevertheless, he seems to have an encyclopedic knowledge of vintage mustangs and was a nice enough guy- giving me a tour of his shop.
If you are looking for a Ford part you can't find (like clean used bumpers or a tilt steering column, or hard to find console), he might have it.
Rebuilding a classic mustang is a reality check on your individual state of perfection.
