Saw this ad on Craigslist. Anyone from the MN area been to this yard? If so comments? Worth the trip from Iowa (about 4 hrs one way)?

WOW good post. Wish I were closer. I bet there are some rare parts there to be had.
Thanks for posting!
Thanks

I had no idea this place was so close - I'm only about an hour away. What is frustrating is that I won't have a chance to get up there for at least another week and a half.

I have been there several times for misc. parts. It is a cool place to walk through, but has very limited parts selection for Mustangs. You can find a few things here and there. If you have a part number, Joe can check to see if he has it. There are several semi-trailers with parts in them. I would, however, call before you make a trip.

If anyone gets up there let me know if you see any 66 fairlanes. I have a 66 2DHT and I would buy a whole parts car if I had the chance as it has a lot of rust issues and parts for a 66 are hard to come by.
Thanks

That's what I was thinking - limited Mustang selection, since the listing is 100 cars of all types from 1949-1990, that doesn't leave much room for very many Mustangs. And even then, most likely not all of them will be '71-'73s.

Yes but the good side of that is most Mustang people were always about the 64-70 cars. And ours were left on the table for many years. I have seen far more 71-73 cars in salvage than 64-70's. Their loss lol. I have had 65 , 67 vert, but I like the big body stangs. And I had a 71 C code mach that was the coolest I have ever owned. Long live 71-73 Mustangs. And the BOSS 351 was the Mustang of Mustangs!!!

Mike,
I would just like to know if they have any 66 fairlane body's(2DHT). I would drive back with trailer for the right body that would have the parts I need. Looking for wheel well trim for it as well.
Thanks

I have been at this place a few years back, I do not live that far away. The cars they have are really stripped. The trouble is, they stripped everything off the cars and put the parts in storage. So it is a matter of getting the parts out of storage, and there is no method to it. It would take someone walking through every semi trailer and looking for a part. I do not think they were that well organized. But they did have several Mustangs of various years, but very little on the cars is left. It could be they have the parts in a trailer somewhere? I might make a trip there this weekend to "look around" again.
