Ford Aftermarket Parts

Aftermarket parts are the flipside of stock parts. When you are restoring your Ford Mustang, you may choose to go with some aftermarket parts in the process. Aftermarket parts are not necessarily inferior to stock parts; they are simply not made by the original manufacturer. Different people have different opinions as to whether aftermarket parts are better than, worse than or equal to stock or original manufacturer parts.
