1983 Custom "factory stepside"
« on: March 30, 2022, 06:34:31 AM »
Finally started on this project. Previous owner pulled perfectly good stepwise bed and decided to sell it and build him a custom wood bed....so the search has been on for a good replacement. Original 305 pulled and now has a 350 with th350c trans. Still have alot of work to do on the Ole girl but she's comin around.

Round headlight trucks look better with steps, rectangle with fleet, IMHO.

I agree, I had a fleet side bed for it but it would have cost me more to do all the rust repair than just find another one. They are getting harder and harder to find though.
