Bobs F100

They are reputable, but expensive and have lots of stock you can't find elsewhere.

I see you are in the UK - I have family there and am leaving for Heathrow tomorrow.
I could have bought you over some parts and will do so in future. my email is cwordsmith@aol.com. I am also restoring a '54F100

I have read about a few guys on here that were not pleased with the work done at his shop. I have bought very few parts from them, but it was across the counter,No problems. I can fully recommend "Mid-Fifty F100 Parts" in Arizona.

What bits are you after?
I'm also in the UK and use mainly Midfifty or Hot Rods Truck Parts - both are easy to deal with, and at Hot Rods especially the customer service has always been faultless.

I bought some small stuff over the counter there and not had any problems, but I will say that he seems to think that alot of his used parts are made of gold. I went to see if he'd trade a damn near perfect 56 grille for one of his 55's - they wouldn't make the deal since bob himself wasn't there. When I inquired about just buying a 55 grill from him he was asking $350 for a VERY rough one. I ended up buying a $50 one off ebay. I prefer mid fifty.

Never had that happen.
Everytime I've called 3 rings & a pick-up.
Very friendly, helpfull & whenever I've asked to speak to John directly he was on the phone instantly.
Now if you called this time of year, it could be that they are away the Holidays.

He certainly has the parts. I have spoken to him,but never bought from him.
I always have a need for doors and running boards and tailgates,etc and would like used. Problem is always shipping. If we could find a way to get those California parts and trucks to Ohio/Pa/Mich. we would have a truckload of money....Bill

oh...I am thinking of a trip and doing just that....
