The bed on this truck is the original ’56 bed, the tailgate support had a skin formed
over a Ford Ranchero tailgate, then the front panels of a ’59
Fleetside for my “flairside” look. The front stake pockets were removed
for a cleaner look. The running gear is from a Cadillac Seville, seats, electric
windows, and telescopic column are also from the Caddy. He is in the
beginning stage of restoring a ’51 Plymouth Business Coupe for his next project.. Great job–Ken!!!
