    New to this forum.
    Working on a 61 Ranchero.
    Currently working on restoring the original suspension.
    Anyone know a source for new upper control arms for a 61?

    A lead is always worth a check.

    Welcome... You may find that your local parts stores still carry parts. I found NAPA and O'Rielly's very supportive. You will also find a catalog from Ecklers (MAC's, and Dearborn Classics) useful. Particularly if you are keeping a stock appearance.

    Do the 61’s use different suspension parts during the same year?
    So far everything I have ordered has not fit - upper ball joints, control arm shaft, lower control arm with ball joint
    Anybody have a parts source for the early ranchero that actually knows what they are doing?
