Bed Fit Question
« on: February 15, 2023, 04:59:40 PM »
Question-

Will a '72 stepside bed fit on a '73 fleetside frame ?

I know they are different generations of the C10 but didn't know about the bed fitting with or without modifications???

Thanks for any advice
'73 Chevy C10, 350, TH350, was a long Fleetside, now she's a short Stepper that's under construction (been in the Family since 1972).

You can make anything fit but why?

Because i need another bed (mine is bad) and found one not too far away.

Buy the 72 one (if cheap enough), flip it, and buy the correct one.  Profit!  ;D

You do know the 72 bed is a different style than the 73 bed, right?

You can still find beds for these trucks and all of the parts are available to build a new bed.

Yes sir - 2nd gen is different than 3rd gen.
