building a 130, looking for parts

Hey guys,

I'm looking to rebuild a butchered 130.
So far, I know I need a new cab, and a new complete bed.
Anyone have suggestions on where to look or who to call?
I am assuming someone might have them imported?

thanks a bunch.

What do you mean cab? There are many separate parts in the cab (it is not like a US pickup). Do you have any pictures?

surprisingly, I think the front bulkhead and window is fine.
all 4 doors are rotten, floors are gone, rear bulkhead and quarters are all full of rust inside out.
might be easier to buy a new truck, but that takes the fun out of it. I know I can get a frame, but probably wont need to. I have a great 90, and love it, so this should be a good summer job.

The rear bulkhead is aluminium so it is probably the cappings that rusted. Floors are just aluminium. Probably need to T posts. Pics would help a lot. The doors are the really expensive part these days.

FWIW - we are bringing in two double cabs (roof and everything behind the seatbox) a high-cap bed and a 130 chassis in our next container. Already have a few options and can add one more to the list if needed.

thanks Mybluett, I'll give you a ring on Monday and see if we can work something out.
Appreciate the leads guys.
I have bought a good bit of stuff from SafariHP in the past, didn't think of him either...
