Parts at FPP
From new, used, and rebuilt to upgrade kits Foreign Parts Positively has what you need. We are a distributor or dealer for most British car suppliers from the U.S. and Europe with extensive stock. FPP has been a Moss distributor since 1969. We also dismantle and sell parts from MGs and Austin Healeys that cannot be restored. We stock rebuilt parts such as shock absorbers, gauges, generators, alternators and starters. We purchase NOS stocks and used parts. We also manufacture kits for upgrades of MGA front suspension and brakes for reliability and safety. In addition to parts we offer upgraded or concours quality engines and gearboxes for most British cars.
Discounts are offered to members of major clubs and club chapters. We ship via UPS, truck freight, by air or U.S. Post.
