Default Best Stores for Classics

Hey guys, buying specific parts for an older car can be quite tricky, we are fortunate enough that there are many manufactures still making reproductions etc. Ebay has always been huge for me, as they have a lot of Scott Drake vendors, and OEM reproductions - as everybody know Canadian Mustang in Langley because of said Ebay/Online vendors shut down years ago. But sometimes waiting for a part just can be a drag, what are some stores/vendors in the lower mainland people know of and would recommend to buy parts from?

Feel free to post name, location, number

You're better off getting a mail box in blaine and ordering online through american vendors and have it delivered to your mail box. I've ordered a lot of parts through National Parts Depot and they take less than 5 business days to have it delivered to my mail box.

..I totally agree, due to the competitive pricing yes Ebay/NPD/us vendors etc is the way to go and I use blaine enterprises (who chargers $3 for package holds up too 2 weeks) so not bad. But its always nice to have a local store you can go to, especially for a lot of novices, to see the product first hand and learn about install etc etc. Plus any oversized or $100+ there always the chance your going to suffer a tax, but typically it is still worth it...

regardless, keep on posting - I think this will still be resourceful to many other individuals like myself. Cheers guys

I usually order from npd or go see Jeff at millenium if it's something small but when I had to get new door seals he only had Scott drake which is absolutely garbage for seals they are wayyy too hard and the door won't close so I ended up stumbling across themustangshop in Calgary, AB which ships pretty quickly over to us. Then you can save a trip across the border.

Cartel which suppliers do u carry for classic parts?

Lately I usually research everything I need, and then see if Jeff at Millenium can get them.

Other suppliers I like are
NPD
Mustangs Unlimited
Tony Branda -Branda shipping was smart enough to mark "vintage parts" on some of the invoices to help save some duty cost$
Brownlows (local) for fiberglass parts

Engine/Powertrain Summit Racing

Mustangs Plus has some decent prices on suspension components

Mustang Depot had a crappy attitude on the phone.
