F53 chassis electrical connectors, source?

I'm buying a 2007 F53 chassis (V10 3-V, 5-speed AOD) that never had a body put onto it.

Who / Where is a good source to buy harness/pigtails/connectors to attach to the Ford factory harness connection points for things like the head lights, tail lights, towing harness connector, etc? I can cut off the factory connectors if absolutely necessary, but would like to keep them if I can get the proper mating connector(s).

I will be putting a 53-56 Ford F-600 cab on the chassis. I haven't totally decided what will be behind the cab.

Thanks, Bill

Thye chassis was built by Ford and I would start there. May need to get to know the parts counter man really good and take pictures so he can match them. Look for any numbers or markings on the connectors or harness.

Next would be NAPA Autoparts as they have the F53 chassis in their parts computer.

I would do the same thing Wizard suggested. I've seen a few car haulers built on Motor home chassis and they look pretty "kool"...
