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.

1960 Ford F100 Stepside

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
