hi , i am looking for a place to order parts for a 09/74 ford f150 ranger xlt. i am restore it so i need lots of parts, fenders , doors, boxsides, bolt kits, mldg kits. etc.. can anyone help me. thanks
I'm in fort nelson b.c , i own a body shop and we have a customer that want to restore his ranger, my normal suppliers are of no help. i am having a hard time to find one place to get everything, lots of places have some but not all. shipping is no biggie.
AMP Auto Body in Edmonton is fairly decent. bought a few things from them. they have or can get just about most body panels and molding that you will need. a little higher priced than some, but they are local and do have a decent stock of parts. they can even get complete new beds, pricey, but new.
also try Dennis Carpenter (bought quite a bit for my 60 Ford off them, very easy to deal with and quick shipments with no hassles), LMC truck parts, Blue Oval, etc that are listed on the home page here. they will have more of the little pieces (interior trim, rubber parts, handles, etc) then Amp will plus all the body and moulding parts.
with our dollar going higher and higher, it is starting to be cheaper and cheaper even with shipping added to do buisness across the border. all of the above are very easy internet catalogue shopping with no hassles.
another piece of avise when shopping cross border, try to get them to ship via US Postal instead of UPS or Fed-Ex. US Postal/Canada Post charge a very reasonable brokerage fee (something like $5 compared to $36 for UPS + their other exoberant fees) and are just as quick.
