Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input to my questions so I can help you better.It will be hard to find backing plates for that year as usually items like that are dealer own items and they usually have a cut off period that they supply parts for. So what I would suggest as I have in the past is instead of wasting gas running around .phone your closest dealer and have them check for availability at other dealers for you as they are hooked up to all via network. If no luck there you can do the same with used parts wreckers as well. Then if all else fails there is Ebay , and Amazon. This is the problem when we take care of vehicles and last that long parts get scarce. Hope this helps you find those parts you need.
I guess that leaves you with trying those online sights I posted , as well as trying to post your own online requests on restoration forums. check those sights I sent. That's what I said happens when we keep them that long. best of luck.
Just checking in to see if you need further help. If not could you please take the time to rate my help.Thank you.
Some times junk yards are a little lazy if they don't see a big profit in taking things off themselves to sell . I have run into that several times. So the best thing to do is to phone around to your closest wreckers and ask if they have a vehicle like yours for parts and if they allow you to remove parts your self (A LOT DO) it's called " PICK YOUR OWN PARTS." Did you try the links I sent you And going on forums for older vehicle's?
Actually try the last link I sent you first because they brag about their inventory for FORD parts. Best of luck.
