Econo Parts

You need to get a catalog from Mac's truck parts for econolines!!! it has everything including body panels.
www.macsautoparts.com
Yes you will have to have them mailed to you but everything I have ever recieved has been top notch!

The BEST autoparts store in SoCal for older car & truck parts:

ENGLER BROS AUTO PARTS ON PICO BLVD. IN WEST LA.

They also have a machine shop.

Tops Auto Supply in Anaheim is a great place to get parts for your Econoline. I just picked up a starter for my 65 for $39.99... that's $20.00 cheaper than Mac's
