    I need to replace window weatherstripping (furs) for my 1962 Ranchero, I see that there are a couple of places online that have these. Question(s) I have.
    Not all replacement parts are made equal, are there some sites that you might discourage or are there some sites that you recommend for general replacement parts.?
    My Ranchero has some replacement parts on the interior, that really I feel are 2nd rate. Dash nobs made out of cheap quality plastic, etc. Just want to get a feel where to look for better quality replacement parts for the interior of the car.

    As far as weather-stripping goes, try to score NOS parts. I went aftermarket and found that they do not fit like the OE parts. Good luck.

    It is.
    The trim for my 71 came from Dearborn, and fit like a glove. FWIW
