  • Bratton's

    I think you folks should know that [email protected] Bratton's has offered to put VFF information flyers in all of their outgoing orders. This is a very big deal IMO so i thank Jeff and all the staff for the support that they have given to this forum.

    I'm impressed with Bratton's support of the hobby and their customers. I have made several purchases from them and couldn't be happier. It's unfortunate they are on the east coast.

      That is GREAT. Hard to beat support from clubs and vendor support. Rod
      Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

      Yes, that is good news and should help spread the word.

        35 years ago when i began restoring my Deluxe Touring I quickly found that Bratton's was head and shoulders above the rest of the suppliers, and virtually all of the parts/supplies I needed I happily bought from them. They are good people

          I am a couple days from putting in a big order to Snyder’s. I will now make that order to Brattons.

            Bratton's annoyed me once.

            I put an order in on an afternoon on a Thursday and figured I would not get it till Monday.
            Next morning it was on my porch!!

            So that messed up my plans for the weekend. I was going to get something else done and I got sidetracked playing with the A.

              At the Gettysburg National meet, I needed a part for a club members car, They brought it the next day to the meet for me. They are the best when it comes to service.

                Bratton's Antique Auto Parts is a top shelf company and is a very big asset to our hobby. Walt, Debbie & Jeff are good people to deal with.

                            I remember the good old days of buying parts from them at Hershey. Walt says at 71 it is just too much any more

                              Actually i heard it's not cost effective when you figure in all the time and expense involved. The internet has changed the times for sure.

                                And then there is that added thing called taxes on all sales made at Hershey, which has turned some vendors away.

                              Yep, there comes a time when it's time to kick back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Hope I can do that soon. LOL

                                Walt says if I need anything come on down go out back to his warehouse and pick up what you want and they come to the office to pay for it.

                                        Bratton's is First Class no doubt.

                                        But, Snyder's and Bert's are top notch too don't neglect them!! There may be others that are good too I have only dealt with these three!

                                        Not many antique car marquees enjoy the parts and support that the Model A Ford does, plus the National Clubs.

                                        The early generation Mustangs come in a close second, there are some excellent parts available there too. CJ Pony Parts offers free shipping and they have excellent parts available.

                                          Today Jeff told me he received the VFF flyers, and that they started going out in today's orders.

                                          We thank them so very much for the support

                                            I received Brattons new catalog today. I'm sure many of you have yours already, because snail mail is even snailier to western Colorado. Since I haven't see any comments, I must assume most haven't looked the catalog over. The first page has an announcement that Walt is retiring! Those of you that have been inflicted with the Model A disease longer than I know what an asset Walt has been to the hobby....

                                            We have been averaging 3-6 new members daily. Many of these new VFF’ers were not on a forum like this before. One reason for this is many are coming in from the Bratton’s parts flyers initiative. I have been working with many of these new members on the phone and through email. Most of the help involved site navigation and operations. The feedback i received back from them is always positive....
