Finding replacement body parts 77 F100
Hi everyone, I have a 77 Ford F100 pickem up. Its a great truck, but its lead a hard life. Mechanically excellent, I have rebuilt the I6 motor and the 3 speed tranny. The body is shot. Its rusty as hell and I think the previous owner painted it with a brush. It has lots of body filler, and the doors fit so poorly you can take a shower inside it with the windows up by driving thru a car wash. The bed is also rusty and bent up badly.

I am thinking I would like to just buy a new cab and bed and replace. Does anyone have suggestions on where to pick up parts like these for reasonable prices. I never plan on doing much more than making it more solid and spraying it flat black, it will never be a show truck.

You got access to a trailer ???? I can think of at least 10 trucks sitting in various wrecking yards within 15 miles of me right now (Ft Worth), that have good cabs/doors...all rust free north Texas stuff :D

JC whitney and has rust repair panels and exterior sheet metal but for an entire cab or bed a junk yard or parts truck are the only options that I am aware of.
