Wonder if Cougar Bill knows of this place and could comment (they're both in Colorado).

Yes, pretty much everyone in the West knows of this place, well established business. http://www.coloradomustang.com/

Welcome to ColoradoMustang.com, home of the worlds largest Ford Mustang salvage yard, featuring over 2,000 Ford Mustangs of all years and body styles. We have a full inventory of new reproduction, Ford tooling, and NOS (new old stock) parts. We deal with all body styles from 1964 1/2 to present day Mustangs.

Colorado Mustang Specialists, Inc. began in a two-car garage in 1972. Mustangs were as numerous as hippies on a Boulder park lawn, easy to buy, fix and sell. So, a would be University of Colorado student found a lucrative way to pay his rent and tuition. After graduation the diploma went in a drawer and the horsing around got serious. Wrecked, junked and abandoned Mustangs were cheap and plentiful, so the collection started that eventually led to the worlds largest Mustang salvage yard.
The pony romance led to many of these Mustangs being rebuilt in our own shop for resale, show and collection. Customer restorations naturally followed the parts and service availability, and continue to be a major product along with routine maintenance and insurance work. Parts sales have always been this companys staple with the emphasis being on used parts, as availability of new Ford parts inventory gradually declined for the early Mustang. However, new, quality repro parts have become increasingly abundant. We keep these parts in stock at our Aurora, Colorado warehouse. New, original Ford service parts are also available from us, as well as many hard to find used parts, for all body styles, from 64-1/2 to the present day Mustang!
Most recent and exciting to us is the addition of modern fuel injection conversions, for 64-1/2 to 85 models. These conversions and related parts let the novice enthusiast bring his early Mustang into the new millennium with a computer driven, fuel-injected, V-8 power train, meeting todays standards without changing the Mustangs classic design. We predict these conversions will open a fun and exciting new era of Mustang enthusiasm.
Can you imagine a full line of new original Ford parts, quality repro parts, the worlds largest collection of used parts, and an experienced service department, all accessible at one Mustang facility? Call us or come and visit our showroom and make it a reality!

Hmmmm,

I have known Dan (owner) and the others for many, many years. They recently ran their ad on craigslist saying they have Cougar parts (along w/ a pic of the yard, which is off limits to everyone).
If you want a part, they want a credit card BEFORE they will go get it. This can take days if not weeks. I have tried many times to purchase parts, like a 70 harness for a customers Eliminator. Gave them credit card # that was run that day, and after 2 months of waiting for the harness, I gave up and asked for a refund... months later I finally got it credited. That was the last time I have tried the "used parts Mustang go round"...

Don't know why these M places (yes we have a few VERY difficult to deal with, and makes me wonder how they stay in business) are so rude. The prices are way above premuim Cougar places, so I wonder what's really up. I know for a fact the painter was kicked out of the place last year (no wonder after seeing his work), and the problems continue.

I have a very good friend who worked there for years, and his response is "nothing changes"...

So, IF you want to deal w/ them DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK!
P.S. returns are given for store credit only!

That's about the best I can say.
