I was really bummed when the hood latch failed on my '84 1/2 20th Anniversary Convertible a couple weeks ago. I was planning to attend a few shows in a 100 mile radius, and didn't like the idea of counting on the secondary latch to keep the hood closed at 70+ MPH. I couldn't find any used pieces locally, so I decided that my best option was to order a replacement. I shopped several sites on the internet, but found that Late Model Restoration was the best alternative overall, plus I have been extremely impressed by the degree of customer service I have received on previous orders. Part arrived on time and exceptional quality and fit. Late Model Restoration has a customer for as long as I own a Mustang.
Ford Motor Company Genuine Parts, Motorcraft® Parts and Ford and Motorcraft Remanufactured Parts are all excellent choices when it comes to performance, longevity and value for your Mustang or SVT Lightning. And they’re all backed by a Ford Motor Company limited parts warranty*, so you know their parts you use are going to perform like they should. Put the same parts on your Lighting & Mustang that came from the factory!
As a deployed service member, there are not many avenues of contacting companies back home conveniently. Between the time difference and use of wifi or morale phones, it can be challenging. Luckily the team at LateModel Restoration emailed me back quickly and gave me everything that I needed for a smoothe purchase, and a few more that followed. They were quick in reply and quick to help me out and I have my parts on the way to my home now because of it. I will be shopping here primarily and I recommend it highly to fellow Mustang folks.
