Then I just heard from a freind that they’re getting out of business!

Just figured I’d put it up for people who didn’t know I’ve seen a lot of posts recently people saying they’re looking for parts and that’s one of the places they’re looking

Never liked some of their policies. But hate to see anyone go out of business.

Wow.......Dallas Mustang and now Mustangs Unlimited. I think Mustangs Unlimited have been around since the 80's. I bought my 1st 66 Mustang in 85 and it came with a Mustangs Unlimited catalog. I may still have it at my parents house. I want to say, Virigina Mustang has been around since the late 80's also.

My "go - to" vendors, these days is Virginia Mustang and NPD. VA Mustang, because the they are 1-2 UPS days from me....and they are "good" folks to deal with.

Heard about this quite some time ago. Too bad. Bought my car in 2004 and had been using them and Glazier Nolan ever since. Never had a bad experience and the crew was very helpful.

Virginia Mustang has been around since at least the early 80’s. I used to get parts from them when I was living in VA. Bought a 66 coupe in 83 and drove it through college. I visited Va mustang several times including once in 84 or 85 to pick up a transmission. Always great service and support.

Thats a big shame. MU were my vendor of choice back in the 90s when I was restoring my '68. No internet back then, just faxed my orders through & never got a wrong part. Still, it happened for a reason & time to move on. My one stop now is NPD for all my Mustang needs.

Kentucky Mustang has a nice paper catalog, an easy to navigate website, helpful and courteous guy that answered the phone when I had a question about my drop shipped ACC carpet AND gave me a couple of free decals just for asking. Look out you know who.

I worked at MU the summer of '89 when at UCONN. Learned a lot, met a lot of great people. Kevin in sales was a huge help for us "black sheep" 71-73 guys. A couple other guys there had bought driver quality B2 & B9 cars that summer for what a rusty 6 cyl 69-70 sportsroof sells for nowadays. From what I gather, the owner went through some health issues. He's in his 60's now and owns quite a bit of commercial real estate in that area, so retiring and living the landlord life probably isn't a tough decision for him.

I'll miss the store, as it was only a 45 minute drive from me. I've had my issues with them over the years, but they always made it right. The two hour wait in the showroom really never changed in 30 years of buying parts from them.

I lived in CT back in the 70s. MU was just a little shop back then, but it was the first “Mustang” shop/store I ever saw.

I put this post up because I ordered and never received anything but also never got charged so it wasn’t the biggest deal but I advice proceed with caution
