Newbee - I can't find T&G wood siding


I'm trying to restore a 1920's shed that has tongue and groove yellow pine siding that I've researched and found that it's called car siding; pattern 105.
It has a flat face with a 1 1/2" concave top edge along its length. I can't seem to find it anywhere. I can order cedar, but it's cost is startling me. I have Home Depot, Lowes, and 84 Lumber in my area but no one seems to be able to help me. Is anyone out there familiar with this type of siding and can you tell me where I could get it??
Thanks in advance!!!

You'll have to get car siding at an actual lumber and millwork company. Your average home center won't carry it. Specialty lumberyards normally stock it, or can make it to match your exact profile.

Where are you located?

thekctermite is correct i have ordered here on the island from my lumber yard and they had brought it in from there suppliers for me. It came in as common pine. which wasn't bad except for the knots. where as the original had none. thickness was the same. if you go cedar its going to be thinner then the original, so butting to existing be careful.

That is exactly it, called 105 drop siding or car siding. It is readily available, but you will need to go to a "real" lumberyard, not a big box or economy yard like 84 Lumber.
It is available in pine. Be sure to backprime and seal all end cuts with a quality oil primer... the modern pine stuff is going to be a far cry from the quality of the 1920's era material.
