Best place to get Mustang parts ??

New to the forum and would like to know where is the best place to get mustang parts?? I am in need of a new vinyl top and wheel well moldings, I see CJ Pony parts and Dallas Mustang pop up most of the time is one better than the other?? Dallas mustang is much closer to me than CJ Pony parts and both of their prices are comparable but I could probably get parts from DM much sooner. Input appreciated. Its been 38 years since I've owned a Mustang so just a little rusty.

Cj Is hit or miss. Iíve never had problems but have heard horror stories of late. Iím in South West Indiana and have been using Kentucky Mustang a lot lately, Virginia Mustang too. But you can never go wrong with National Parts Depot.

Dallas Mustang is dead and no more....out of business as of this year...they closed their doors.

NPD is the best place. Virginia Classic Mustang is also excellent. CJ's is ok..

I never understood the CJ hate. I've ordered an overwhelming majority of my parts from them and their prices and selection have always been great and their shipping has been quick, too. NPD is good for the really weird/random ones but I find CJ's website much easier to navigate and they have their RPM club.

NPD without a doubt. Rick picks the best parts he can to sell us mustangoholics and if there is any issue he will take care of it.

For me it depends on who has what I need in stock, and the price. I usually stick with NPD or CJJP. I have ordered from Classic Industries but their prices are almost always more than the other 2.

in addition to NPD, i have also used virginia classic mustang, and autokrafters for mustang parts. all three have always treated me well. one other place that has always done right by me, but they tend to be a bit more expensive than the other places is mustangs plus. one thing about mustangs plus is that they also do a fair amount of R&D work so you can build the mustang you want to build. the others tend to be more about restoration than modification.

I also go with NPD for Mustang parts. For everything suspension related I work with opentracker, steering with Chuckostang and not Mustang related, like gaskets, summit or Rockauto.



Had a couple of orders from CJ too. Worked ok, but I like NPD better (don't ask me why).

I use primarily NPD, Mustangs Unlimited and Ohio Mustang for restoration specific items. NPD because of quality, MU because it's local for large items and Ohio Mustang for the 71-73 items that no one else carries.

For steering, suspension, electrical, engine parts and typical maintenance items, I use Rock Auto.

Nothing worthwhile is ever quick, cheap or easy, those that can't do, complain

NPD is my primary source. Their support is unmatched and their products are pretty darn good quality.

Sometimes the part will dictate the source. I've mostly used CJP & NPD and both have been great.
Had a bad experience with Dallas Mustang earlier this year.
Virginia Mustang staff are great, very friendly and helpful.
They have an exclusive on a Radio Suppressor Capacitor that is connected under the Voltage Regulator.
It has the original Ford P/N and correct stamping for the 66:

Virginia Mustang is actually providing three different suppressors, correct for 1965, 1966 and 1967-1971. And they wholesale them to competitors, which is awfully nice of them. I just realized that we need to have better photography on our website for them, showing the markings!!

Welcome to the forums! Hopefully your mustang isn't as rusty as you are .

CJPP seems like they drop ship a lot of parts, so you don't get em real fast, but eventually you'll get 'em. Their sale prices sometimes makes them comparable to National Parts Depot, but NPD usually stocks everything. Also check out Mustang Depot and Mustangs to Fear too. Prices vary so get out there and go shopping, comparing.
