Check craigslist under parts. Plenty of cabs here in California.

Your best bet is to find another cab there are plenty out there be sure to get the right one 1948-50 have a different dash than a 1951-52. as well as the hood, grill and front fenders. I have seen many a mix up out there. do the research and get the right one. You can get floor pans and repair your cab if wish, however lots of labor hours and supplies are needed. My suggestion is find another one. You will have the pick of extra doors if they come with the cab. Less Headaches...Good Luck to you, or another member with the same question.
