Hemmings has listings for this kind of service. What kind of parts are you looking for? I don't think you want to buy parts unless you have the instruments to repair and calibrate. I recommend you send to someone who can perform the required tasks. Is your instrument cluster a Stewart-Warner or a Waltham?

I don't know what you need, but I have a selection of NOS gauges, which I have been selling. Let me know what you need.

For an accurate answer please specify which cluster parts you are refering to because clusters are an assembly of many parts.

Thanks for the feedback! What I am looking for is the replacement pointers. The one on my fuel gauge is broke and the others are bent. The rest of the cluster is really good considering it is the original. The car set in a barn for over 40yrs and was kept untouched so most everything was in good condition.

The gauges you refer to are out of bigger ford trucks up to the 70's

It will probably less expensive to replace the gauges than have the needles replaced. Baxter Ford i Kansas repairs the gauges.

Thanks TomO and everyone else, I should have been more clear. I want the parts to do the repairs myself. Everything on the car as I said before is in great condition but due to the cheap material for the needles some need replaced. Thats all I'm wanting.

Try buying needles from someone that rebuilds instruments. Make them from thin sheet alluminum and paint to suit?
