Hi there, I have lot of parts to buy for my 65 and I want to know if all the reproduction parts are made from the same place (basically interior parts) I see that prices are different from one to others vendors!!!!
Is there quality difference?

You can pm me if you don't want to specify vendors

thank's

My experience has been that nearly all repro parts are made by one or two vendors and resold by thousands. Some are excellent quality and some are questionable. Some are made in the USA and some are made in China. Most will fit and work, but most are not OEM quality. If I remember right, seems like Dearborn makes many of the parts even if you buy them from MACs or any of the many vendors.

Having said that, your only option is repro parts unless you have a great parts yard with lots of your year and body model.

I don't know what Dearborn makes but I think they they buy most of their stock just like Macs and Autokrafters does.

Dennis Carpenter does make pretty much all the weatherstrips, side mirrors and door handles the others sell.
