Default Re: Preferred Vendor for parts?

I prefer Berts , Brattons or Snyders . Berts has good used parts and sometimes even new old stock parts, they also handle the new reproduction parts . Brattons have the good repro parts and Walt is one of the best guys ever to deal with . If the parts are wrong Walt will take them back without problems . I still buy a lot of parts from Snyders . Snyders are one of the quickest to ship and they also handle the best repro parts .

I'm 40 minutes from Brattons so the choice is easy. I will say that the quality of some of the parts was off and it was not a problem to return them (Ford grill emblem) and it's a very painless transaction. I will also say that you get what you give when dealing with small shops. Walking in it's more like a family than a business. Brattons doesn't really have a storefront, just a newer warehouse with a small office area out front. When the phone doesn't get answered it's because they are out back. They do stop in person sales to help phone customers.

Yes,
His name is Rick smith . I realize that everyone knows and supports the other guys which I do mostly as well. But itís nice to have a supplier nearby . His doesnít have everything but thatís ok. He has some used parts as well.
I do Model A service and restoration work up in St. Louis area and have several cars in house from that area right now. I advertise in the national magazines if you need my number. Itís also on Mafca resource web link
I do agree that all the core suppliers are great and we are lucky to have them. None of our cars would be in the road without them .

For us in Arizona, Arizona Model A Parts. Sammy has a lot of new and used parts. Great person to deal with. Just a phone call and will send the part. Shipping is cheaper and can drive there in about two hours.
