Replacement panel question

Me and my Dad have a 1963 econoline van pickup. I've been searching for a good place on the web that sales patch panels for it. The drivers side needs alot of attention.
I'm trying to find a place that's affordable and not asking a arm and leg for them.
Please help.

What may be cheaper in the long run is a donor vehicle but depending on what part of the world you live in ...

Glad to help ... D & D Brakes in Portland OR sells the rear roll pans I believe also can be googled he sells Econo specific brake conversion kits as well

I live in WV thats alittle far out of my way...thanks for the offer though. My dad wants to put disk brakes on it later on. When my dad first got the pickup he dropped in a 200six (old one bit the dust) and fixed the brakes. They'll put you though the windshield! lol
It's one of those never ending projects.
For an example of some of the modification we're doing to it. If you ever looked at the rearend of the van or pickup you notice 6 pressed in dents on the rollpan. We removed them and the holes for the bumper mounts.
We're thinking of customizing the instrument cluster because currently the only one working is the speedometer.
Also to make it easier on me (I'm a big guy) and to get to the back of the cab we took out the original crappy ruined seats and got some dodge neon seats to put in their place. My dad built a mounting plate in the floor on both sides that works like a reese hitch. On the bottom of each seat is a metal plate with a receiver. Two bolts on the sides of the hitch are used to tighten them. The way it's fixed I can slide the seat back when I drive it then when my dad drives it he can slide it up. Cool huh?
