Below are some of the web site that have been the most useful to us for finding parts, getting information, and everything else that is involved in this enormous project. When we first started rebuilding this truck, we had absolutely nothing to work from and had to find everything from scratch. So we hope that this will help make someone else’s search a little easier. If you know of any other good sites, please contact us, and we will add the site to this list.
- Classic Pickups
Home of the great American pickup.
- Kanter Auto Products
We got all the parts for our engine here. They had a complete rebuild kit for about $1300. The quality was excellent!
- Custom Autosound
A custom radio for your old car or truck, and it fits into the original radio holes! I haven’t ordered one yet, but it’s definitely on my list.
- Mac’s Auto Parts
Quality parts for early Fords (1909-1970’s).
- Classic Truck Shop
Lots of good information and helpful articles.
- Vintage Auto Parts, Inc.
A large variety of quality parts.
- Recks & Relics
A large parts catalog and lots of useful information.
- F-100 Supernationals
Website for the annual Ford truck show in Pigeon Forge, TN. This is a huge event, and from what I have heard, it is just amazing.
- Sacramento Vintage Ford
This has been one of our primary sources for parts throughout this project. They have just about everything you could want, and usually have the best prices.
- C&G Early Ford Parts
Another good parts source.
- Ford Truck Enthusiasts
This is just a great site – be sure to check out their forums for lots of helpful info.
- Doc’s House of Bolts
We got a complete bolt kit from them, along with a simple-to-install EZ-wiring harness.

So what if I don’t have a V-8? This is still a great site with lots of great info.
- Classic Auto Parts
Another excellent source of parts for us, formerly Obsolete Ford Parts.
