Where to find older truck parts?

This has always been a problem with us, and others, when restoring rides from the 50s, 60s & 70s. Is there any local parts store that actually carries and has on hand parts for a 1961 Ford F-100? Specificly, front brake cylinders. This is the only part needed to get this ride on the road today. Thanks, Marsha

I had some luck

Believe it or not O'Reilly's was able to find the
master cylinder I needed for my 50 Chevy Rat rod.

Not in stock, but they had it in 2 days- at a reasonable price.
Turns out is was off a 80's Chrysler, but that's a different story.

It wouldn't hurt to check with them, the lookup charts went
way back on brake parts.

Rock Auto, a site sponsor, SHOULD be able to get anything you could need aside from sheetmetal.

If you can't find something local that might help...

NAPA in Hartselle is good to us. Again has to be ordered and here the next business day. But would sure like to have a place that carries what we need on those Saturdays when we are trying to get the ride on the road NOW!!! Oh, well. Thanks, Marsha
