My first Mustang restoration was done in 1991 using mostly blue box Ford replacement parts. I guess we would have bitched about them then but Al Gore had not yet invented the internet. Life got in the way and I was not able to re-enter the hobby until 2014. Glad I paid extra for an original unmolested rust free example this time as most stuff today is crap when compared to the second rate (we thought at the time) Ford replacements.
I got some correctly cast HiPo manifolds, and a great Boss 302 oil pan from Scott Drake. I've also got a lot of useless $hit that I returned.
I would hate to ever have to trust an aftermarket ignition switch to start my mustang. If I am able to overcome my engine issues I'm going to be big on collecting NOS and blue box Ford replacement parts.
Don't think you need to be a cheap bast$&d. Just smart.
