These pics were taken by the previous owner at his house. I have since removed the service boxes (they are for sale.) I have bought a SWB Stepside bed (for the fenders) and will use them on the LWB Stepside bed that this truck has. Hopefully, I'll run across a SWB Fleetside bed and a frame someday and swap my body over to it. Until then, I'll work on what I've got.

nice truck
the bedsides for a stepside are pretty straight pieces with maibe three bends in the top part maibe you can have them made in a sheetmetal shop , if you have the originals you prolly can make a cardboard template for it so the mountingholes and such go in the right place
for the bottom you could use wood and U or boxprofile crossmembers

Nice Trick- always good to have more 60-66 here. What are you looking to get out of the boxes?

Thanks for the info. Actually, the service boxes were bolted to the existing stepside sides in place of fenders, so I have great sides on the truck now and the original wood bed has been replaced with diamond plate steel. I also have the sides and front to the SWB bed I bought for the fenders so I'm fixed pretty good for stepside parts. (Too bad I like the short/wide Fleetside beds best!) I just put a rebuilt Saginaw 3 speed tranny in it, but the brakes are keeping me off the road for now. (Got to put a little more time and cash into it before I can cruise.)

Hiya DP,

Thanks for asking. They're really in great shape. All the doors swing and latch properly. This truck was an airport maintenance vehicle when it was bought in '63 by Anderson Aviation in South Carolina. It spent a lot of time in a hanger, hence the general lack of rust. They don't make the tool boxes anymore so they're pretty rare. ...I'm thinking $400 for the pair?

I like it!

But If it was at my house I'd have to think about leaving those utility fenders on until I converted it to a swb... Think of all the great storage for when you take it to cruise-ins. :wink:

Hi folks,

I just got the 2 piece driveline in after installing a '61 vintage SM420 4 speed. At least I can drive down the road now. What a low geared trans! I knew it would be a crawler, but man, 1st gear is good for about 5 MPH!!! The 327 sure lugs down with this transmission. Anyway, at least it's running now. Got to go through the brakes next. It was interesting on my "Maiden Voyage" though, as I went about a 1/2 mile down the road and backup up to turn around next to 2 young guys resting in the shade after cutting the grass on the right of way. As I backed up they came running over yelling; "You wouldn't want to sell it would you?" That was the first comment from the first person seeing it and made for a good memory of my 1st trip in my project! I just grinned and said: "That depends... It's really get potential, doesn't it?" I'll probably run it for a while without the bed on it. It sure makes acess easier to the undercarriage!
