About Us

We are experts in right hand drive vehicles and restoration. We are enthusiasts who have years of experience and specialized knowledge in right hand drive vehicles. Our team is staffed with industry veterans who have experience in the classic car, restoration, manufacturing, and race industries. Our staff also includes professionals from the shipping industry to make sure your item arrives undamaged.

We have the largest inventory of GTR parts IN STOCK in the USA. Unless an item says special order, you don't have to wonder how long it'll be before your item ships or if the price might change. Typically, our domestic orders ship within 1 business day. Save time and money by not having to wait weeks or even months for your parts to come in.

We also offer time-saving kits that allow you to focus on your car instead of having to spend hours researching nuts and bolts.


We have an exciting feature on our website that allows customers to know whether something is in stock (green button), special order (yellow button), or out of stock (red button). As long as the shopping cart button is green, we have the item in stock and you should be able to add it to your cart. If you order by 2 pm EST, we can typically ship most domestic orders the same business day.


The best way to get information on our out-of-stock parts is to click on the "email me when back in stock" alert button for the specific part. This button can be found in blue at the top right of the web page. You will be notified by email as soon as we have that item in stock. We typically do not know when an item will come back in stock, so this allows you to be notified automatically.

No. In our experience, new OEM or quality reproduction parts/upgrades save money in the long run and provide a better overall experience.

Yes, we add new parts as often as possible. Check our website frequently! If you have a specific part you need, contact us. Email sales@terrafirmaautomotive.com and we’ll find out if we can get it. On multiple occasions, we’ve had customers call us the same day a part comes in.

After years of experience in customer service, we have found that email is the most efficient means of communication. We can serve more customers more quickly by responding through email. Please email us at sales@terrafirmaautomotive.com if you have questions.

We sell new, unused OEM and aftermarket parts. The parts are not in "show quality" or pristine condition. Instead, they may show minor cosmetic blemishes or marks made during manufacturing. For example, a bumper may show mold lines on the inside of the plastic where the plastic was molded during manufacturing. The parts may also show signs of shelf wear from being stacked or handled by the manufacturer or transporter. Reputable installers, body shops, glass shops, or paint shops know how to address these issues. The functionality of the part is not affected. Please email us at sales@terrafirmaautomotive.com before purchasing if you have questions about the condition of our parts.


The quickest way to get a shipping quote is to put the item(s) in your shopping cart and enter your full address in the checkout section. You will have a chance to review your order before placing it. We use your address to calculate the shipping to your exact location. We do not send junk mail to your address. You will not be able to get a shipping quote for large items that have to be shipped via freight truck. You must email us directly at sales@terrafirmaautomotive.com or use the “Questions” button to contact us for freight quotes. Please note that we do not ship freight cargo internationally.

Most domestic orders ship within 1 business day unless it contains special order items. Many items can be shipped the same day if ordered by 3 pm EST. Please note that any Next Day Air orders placed Thursday after 2 pm EST may not ship until Friday. Next Day Air orders shipped on Friday will arrive the following business day (Monday).

For ALL expedited services (e.g., Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air, 3rd Day Air, Express Mail, etc.) the cutoff time to ensure same-day fulfillment is 2:00 p.m. EST. Orders placed after 2:00 pm EST are not guaranteed to ship the same business day. 

Shipping insurance is a service that we offer to protect packages if something goes wrong in the shipping process.  When customers pay to insure their package, we file a shipping claim on the customer’s behalf as long as customers provide the required documentation. Please click here to read what shipping insurance does and does not include. We also like giving the customer the flexibility to choose to pay for this service instead of passing the cost along to all customers.

Yes. We ship to most countries with a few exceptions. However, please note that we include the original invoice in the shipment. We do not lower invoices to reduce the customs obligation under any circumstances. Also, we do NOT ship items requiring freight transportation internationally.

No. The buyer is responsible for customs and duties charged by his/her country.

Please note that all shipping times refer to business days unless otherwise specified. The majority of carriers do not work on weekends or major holidays. Shipping days refer to business days (Monday through Friday) and do not include weekend days. Unless it's a guaranteed service, such as Overnight, all shipping times are estimates.

For example, if you choose "Next Day Air" on Thursday and the item ships on Friday, you will receive it on Monday as that is the next business day. Some carriers offer weekend delivery for an additional fee. Please contact us directly at sales@terrafirmaautomotive.com if you have any questions about expected delivery time. We also encourage you to check the specific carrier's website for detailed information.

We pride ourselves in ensuring, to the fullest extent possible, that our hard-to-find parts make it to their destination undamaged. We use high quality cardboard boxes (200 lb crush rate) on items ranging from small screws and emblems to weatherstripping and cylinder heads. We have not ever used, nor do we plan to use, padded envelopes to ship parts. Shipping is not a source of revenue for us; instead, we charge what it costs to ship parts to their destination. Many of our parts could take months to replace. We are not willing to risk damage or delay by offering “free” or cheap shipping options that could result in unnecessary headaches.

No. Due to the volume of orders we receive, the speed with which we fulfill orders, and complexity of combining orders, we do not offer combined shipping once an order has been placed.

Yes. We frequently ship to APOs. The only exception is if a part is too big to ship through the USPS. In that case, we would need a non-APO local address to ship the parts to.
