Canfield has pretty good ones. Not sure, but I think the last one was just recently(think there are two during the summer).
There is the All Ford swap meets in Columbus every turkeyday weekend and then again about the first of April. It's not quite what it used to be 20 yrs ago, but sometimes you can find a good bargin.

Katmandu is starting off with a positive reputation.
Thumbs up

I don't remember the exact dates, but there is always a couple HUGE FORD only swap meets at the Ohio State Fairgrounds every year.

I believe one of the dates is Thanksgiving weekend every year.

Here's a flyer for this year's event.

Up until a few years ago I used to go to the spring and fall swap meet at the Lowes motor speedway in Charolete NC. What was great about this meet was Dennis Carpenter has his NOS part sale the same weekend and its just a mile up the road. About 400 miles one way for me. Now with young kids I cant seem to get away like before.

If its 53-56 parts you need, the supernats in knoxville is the place to go. Its there or can be bought

Also another guy to buy parts from,Dave--is Lyle Daniels in Ky. He is high -but his parts are real nice. I was at his place a few weeks ago and it would be a short drive for you,and he has cabs and alot of sheetmetal . He always attends Knoxville Supernat's.
Tip sale is coming around Thanksgiving. Look up their site if you need any of that stuff.
Dennis Carpenter has a great shop and have been there also. I fixed a press for them once. Bill

There's a fellow named Dave who works for Green Sales (800-543-4959), but he also sells his own obsolete parts, specializing in 1953/56 truck parts.

Dave Cooper: 513-403-9427. He's located in the Cincinnati area.

You missed him, Bill...he was at the F100 Supernats in Knoxville TN last May, drives a tricked out '54 Panel.

He had at least 20 tables loaded with parts, all NOS Ford.

You name it, he's prolly got it.
