Quarter Panels

Does anyone know of a company that supplies replacement rear quarter panels for a 1962 Ford Falcon Ranchero? I need both sides.

I have used the following web site for finding used parts:

For stuff like that it requires some serious phone work to make sure that you know what you’re getting. Its basically a network of salvage yards.

You can also try:

Those suggestions are just based on knowing that these places can be good in general - others may know better for your specific application.

Thanks for helping me with this, I’ve been looking everywhere and am not having the best of luck.

You’re not going to find an aftermarket body panel supplier for this vehicle. It isn’t considered as a collectable. But that’s beginning to change.

Until that time, all you can do is fabricate the new panels yourself.
