Best place to buy Flathead parts

I have an 8RT that I am resealing and doing just a few minor ignition and fuel upgrades and there are a million places to buy parts. Just wondered who had best prices and customer service.

Thanks!!!

Smile flathead sites

hi,
i have searched several sites,
they are
bobdrake.com
early ford v8.com
denniscarpenter.com
vanpeltsales.com and
macs antique auto

i like macs antique the best for prices and service.

most sites have the same parts, you need to double check everything because some aftermarket parts are not 100% exact.

van pelt seems to have the most knowledge and reference materials. bob drake seems to be most expensive.

hope this helps, good luck!

My favorite source is Bob Selzam in Tom's River NJ. He is just Ford Trucks 50's and earlier, and almost everything is NOS Ford. Business is called 'Half Ton Fun'

Best place to buy Flathead parts

I've had good luck with Chuck's Trucks and Joe's Antique Auto - both back east and they got parts to the West Coast very quickly. Also, closer to me in SoCal is Red's Headers very helpful even if he doesn't have what you are looking for he will know who has it.
