nowhere if you want new ones...the "stamped" repros are average at best and aren't very similar....i (meaning my fabricator) will be fitting 71-73 Mustang full length pans in mine in the near future and will post how it goes...i do foresee some modifications..

good second hand ones or fabricating pieces to fix yours are your only options if you want to keep the stamping as per factory...

Back when I was working on my car's restoration, I ran into the same problem; then one day I stumbled onto a 1976 wagon with immaculate floors.  The shop cut out the whole floor from the firewall back and with a little fabrication... Perfecto. Paul

Look in the "Project Forums".  A member is in the process of replacing his floor pan issues.

My mentality is: it's metal: Chop cut weld.
Like it or not, you have to be open to alternative metal.

Floor pans, look to a late model crown vic or Lincoln Continental. 
For replacement metal, some folks have used Mustang floor pans. Flipped them left to right but you have to search.

Trunk floor pans, Chevelle 70-72 would work. Same for Oldsmobile Cutlass/442 of the 70-72 era. It's not exactly the same but it's metal.
