"Orphan Years" Essential Parts/Supplies Vendors

Thought this would be nice to have suppliers for our trucks gathered into one easy-to-find place.NOT FOR THE MASS-MARKET VENDORS,(we all know them), just 57-60,either oddball or hard to find things.Please list your favorites.

Best Human(?) NOS Parts Man:
Hands-down, it's NumberDummy,with over 40 years experience.Contact/harass him through FTE- I repeat,PLEASE,harass him!

Wiring Diagrams: Full-color,laminated
CHEVY, FORD COLOR WIRING DIAGRAMS items in ClassicCarWiring store on eBay!
(ignore that vulgar "C" word,please)

Factory Shop Manuals, Paper or Disc:
Many Vendors on Ebay

Factory Literature, Advertising,Etc.:
Faxon | Shop Manuals for Car & Truck Owners | DIY Service, Repair or Maintenance

Rubber Products,Windshield Seals,Etc.:
Dennis Carpenter is generally considered to have the best products,but not the cheapest.
Dennis Carpenter Ford Car, F-100 Pickup Truck, 8N, 9N Tractor and Cushman Scooter Restoration Parts

PARTS LOCATOR(must know correct,most recent Ford part number)Find NOS parts!:
Welcome to the PartsVoice Parts Locator

NOS Automotive Fabric Supplier:
Largest Selection of Cloth, Vinyl & Leather Automobile Upholstery - SMS Auto Fabrics

Fridge Styleside Tailgates (sometimes difficult to find):
Dennis Carpenter,maybe others.Imported,pricey

Y-Block High Performance Supplier/ReManufacturer(Many of our trucks came from Ford with this venerated workhorse.):

I have had good luck here: Sacramento Vintage Ford Parts, Inc. • 888-Ford-100

I live close but they have had most of what I have looked for and will find what is not in the catalog.

lmc truck has been good too.

I also buy from them.Most everyone is aware of all the big vendors like LMC,Sac Vntge Ford,Mac's,etc,I am trying to compile a must have list of hard to find,or little known,or specialty sellers.

I am looking for a single barrel carb for my truck.
It has a straight six in it and the carb is beyond
repair kits.

Do you have a source for carbs?

Hey Guys. I am hot rodding my 1957 ford f100 and I am replacing the engine and trans. So I have a straight 6 300 and a 3 speed trans for sale. The only catch is I am in riverside county CA and have a limited range for delivery. Engine and trans are strong just upgrading. Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Are you sure it's a 300? They didn't start building them till '65. Possibly a 223? If it has the intake/exhaust on the left (driver's) side it's a 223. Passenget side means it's either a 240 or a 300
