Lots of opinions, some not so positive, that I’ve heard from people who deal(t) with them unfortunately. I’ve made 2-3 purchases from them and have had a pretty positive experience so far first hand. One very minor issue(one small part forgotten) they rectified.

When I first got my Regal going on 7 years ago, I placed quite a few orders to G Body Parts because at the time they had by far the largest selection (that I was aware of) of reproduction G Body stuff. OPGI didn't even have a G Body catalog, neither did Classic Industries, Kirban dealt in Turbo Regals almost exclusively, and I wasn't aware of Mike's Montes or Dixie MC. I never had any issues and Brian Weaver used to post here all the time as did Toby Pawlaczyk so if you had an issue you could PM either of them and it was quickly resolved.

Then I got busy with some other projects and ended up taking a 2 or 3 year hiatus from my Regal and I was sparsely logged on to GBF. And apparently in that amount of time, things changed drastically, because ever since, I've heard of tons of order issues with GBP to the point people are questioning if it's even a legitimate business and we never hear from Brian Weaver or Toby Pawlaczyk anymore. I believe there was some drama that went down that I don't know or care to know the details of, but whatever occurred seems to have affected their business, at least from my observations. I haven't placed an order to GBP since then, for a number of reasons, the numerous complaints being one of them. Most of their stuff I've been able to buy cheaper elsewhere being another.

Unless I start hearing better things about them, I probably won't order from them again. There's no real reason to with the huge increase in G Body aftermarket support from other vendors.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

several years ago, I did get a few small items through them, did have to wait a bit for them, but someone always answered the phone and I never got any negativity... but then again, that was several years ago, and all the responses I see are going to the negative side....

I've also noticed that they're not showing up in the supporting vendors list anymore.....

Mike's Montes, Dixie Restoration, Classic Industries, Stock Interiors, or Kirban Performance for sure! GBody Parts as a last resort ONLY!
Yep,and you've got those listed in the correct order,with Mike's right at the front (y)
He is an awesome guy to deal with and my personal first choice for Monte parts.
He also strips cars and has parts not listed on his web page,so it dosent hurt to call if youre looking for parts not shown.

I might be biased towards Mike as my go to for parts but it’s for a reason, have known/dealt with him for 20 years now and he’s been doing this for much longer. Stand up guy and great to deal with. Been to his place a couple times and always end up buying more as there are things I don’t think about until I see them.

Brain is more miss than hit I never had a luck with mail order from them. Shame on me for giving them a second or third chance.

There is a reason he does not accept paypal.

They advertise in the magazines so they must be on top of paying those bills. Maybe they have "select" customers that they take care of?
