Any salvage yards still carry old Pintos?
« on: April 26, 2014, 09:27:19 PM »
I have a 73 coupe and find it difficult to locate some parts. I prefer original used or NOS parts since I'm trying to restore the car to original.

[/size]
[/size]So, are there any places that still have these old parts in stock? I've been searching eBay for my parts so far, but I hope there are better resources.

There is a yard here that has tons of classics! I have a 1970 Galaxie and they have a few there. A few Mustangs, Pintos, and Vegas, etc.

My parts came off here and ebay for the most part. Mostly ebay though...

Sorry, I'm way in Idaho. Stopping by the place with the 6 Pintos might be a good place to start!

I'm in Washington state. But I don't think that matters since most places will mail the parts.
