stake bed pictures

Post by wild4679 » July 27th, 2017, 10:13 pm

If you have a stake bed truck with a NOS designed bed, and are willing to share pictures, would you send them to me or post? I'm looking for ideas on how to build a stake bed that looks 1931 era to match my 82-B cab.

I intend to build a hoist bed, so if anyone recommends a hoist manufacturer for a pump/cylinder PTO system to "fit" an AA, please share. Or, if someone knows of a hoist from a dismantled AA, send me a PM with their contact info.

Thanks for the help.

that's a great picture of the frame. I'm assuming the metal is original? If it's a repro, it's a piece of art. Thank you.

for others who send in pictures of their stake beds, pictures of the rear and side are helpful.

I got pictures on my camera but dont have my camera with me... Will get them asap...

that is a very nice looking bed posted above. I need to get a new rear panel made for mine - shouldn't be too hard to make for a sheetmetal guy.
