Looking for advice in Edmonton

I posted this on the more general board for the sixties Fords, but thought I would say hello here as well, and ask for your advice (if I go ahead with this restoration I will be back with more questions - I am vehicularly challenged!):

"Twenty years ago, my dad and I bought a 1963 F100 off of a farm for use as a utility vehicle - it was a Saskatchewan highways vehicle originally (therefore the Orange although it looks like it may have started two-tone with a white top), and then carried cattle so the truck bed is a bit banged up. Since buying it, I have done nothing to restore it, and for the most part it has been unbelievably reliable and, like the Everready Bunny, it just keeps on going. I did redo the entire brake system and had some electrical work and other minor stuff done. Rust wise, it is great except for the driver's side floor boards and a bit on the lower sides and where the tailgate is hinged. I have looked after that aspect pretty well.

My 16 year old now wants me to fix up the old beast, and the starting point is new tires as I have no idea how old the rubber is - it was old when I bought the truck in '81. This is my question - the sidewalls indicate a size of 6.50-16LT and I can't find anything that size in the catalogues. The shop I have dealt with were going to substitute the wheels last year for newer ones that take the modern sizing, but I didn't want to change the wheels since the truck is now absolutely unchanged from when it was built and I would like to keep it that way.

Any advice on where I could find tires? I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada."

I also need new/used side mirrors as the passenger side was ripped off and the driver's side one is pretty wrecked. Any place in Edmonton to look for these?

As far as the mirrors go, if you want to keep it original there is a place in Spruce Grove called "George Moir Antique Auto Parts". I don't have the phone #, but it shouldn't be too hard to find.
