Has anyone bought stuff from Dallas Mustang? I bought some stuff over the Internet and was really disappointed with the quality and the service. Maybe I was expecting too much. Any recommendations on other vendors?
Thanks

Dallas Mustang is local for me, so I have bought a bunch of stuff from there. Mostly stuff like engine and heater stuff. Not any sheet metal or other things like that. I have not had any problems. They do have some very knowledgable people.

I have also bought from Canadian Mustang and Laurel Mountain (sp) and been happy with both. I know some VMFers have not been happy with Canadian Mustang.

I've used National Parts Depot, Virginia Mustang, and Mustangs Plus with no problems.

DM is local for me to, but I only use them when I need it now. They are usally higher than NDP or the others I use. That is why I keep everyone's catalog.

I live near CJ Pony Parts and like them a lot. They are very knowledgeable and their prices are reasonable.
They have an pretty good online catalog at www.cjponyparts.com.

I was in Dallas last December so I went to DM to see what they had. Typical with other dealers, they were out of a lot I wanted to pick up. I still managed to spend about $200. The price is a little higher than some, but the people were pretty sharp. Next time I am in town, I will stop in again as they had some things I should have bought and I want to inspect what I buy as returning wrong parts can be a hassle.

I like CJ Pony Parts in PA. I am a true Texan near San Antonio and as friendly as they come. I was very disappointed in Dallas Mustang as they were not very "TEXAS" friendly the two times I tried them. It's a shame that I don't feel welcome to keep my business In-State with as many cars as I have to restore.

I get to Dallas on occasion and have been by their place of business but have never bought anything due to significant price differences. Virginia Mustang and CJ Pony parts are my two favorites because of price and service. I asked Dallas Mustang the other day if they would match others prices and they very indignantly said "NO". Therefore, today I ordered my front & rear Nordan bumpers from CJ Pony Parts. By the way, how does Larry’s and Oklahoma Mustang stay in business with their sky-high prices?

I too am in Dallas. DM are nice, knowledgeable people. Unfortuanately, as stated by some of other DFWers (dallas/ft. worth), they are high priced, and their catalog seems to never get updated. It seems if you're looking for any part later than a '68, you're going to have a hard time. I only use them for emergencies. Personally, I really like NPD (after years of research, I believe they have the lowest prices) and restoremustangs.com.

70 Mach 1 (351C 4V 4-speed) I've been restoring since '96. 95% complete. Also have a '68 HT (289 2-speed) that I restored between '97-98 and is FOR SALE! The VMF has proven to be an invaluable resource for information, humor and excellent advice.

I know I'm late in replying to the post, but I only live 2 miles from Dallas Mustang, but rarely buy there. They are over priced and usually don't have what I need in stock. And a good friend of mine works there, though he knows nothing about classics. I only use them for stuff I need NOW. Otherwise I order from CJPony, Mustangs Unlimited, and just recently ordered a NPD catalog because of the good reports I've heard here. BTW several of us are going to the Cruise in Lewisville tomorrow night, if your in Dallas and can attend you can find more info here
