Thanks for getting back with me.
I'm very picky about recommendations and I'm sorry to say I found nothing good in your backyard.
The closest pick is about 7 miles away in Chatsworth.
This guy John Maskrey knows his classic Fords and knows the LA car scene including how to find the best deals on hard to find goodies.
Everything looks good from qualifications, location, years in business and yelp reviews. This is the closest place to you I would take my thunderchicken.
