THE RESEARCH I'VE DONE LOOKS LIKE THE DIFFERANCE WOULD BE THE MOUNTING HOLE DIMENTION. THE MOUNTING HOLES I HAVE ARE 10.44 CENTERS THATS THE WIDTH OF THE HOLE CENTERS. THERE IS ANOTHER DRAWING SHOWING LIKE A 12.NOT SURE OF THE REST.

THE ONE I NEED WOULD BE HAVE 17 7/8" HOLE CENTERS TOP TO BOTTOM ON THE BED SIDE. THIS IS NOT MEASURING FROM THE TOP OF THE BED RAIL BUT THE HOLE CENTERS ON THE SIDE. AND HOLE CENTERS FROM SIDE TO SIDE WOULD BE 10.44 .

IF THESE DO NOT MATCH I COULD NOT USE IT.

IN CASE I CAN'T USE IT WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE ANGLES AND RODS. I MAY HAVE TO FAB ONE YET.


MY DRAWING IS DATED 6-30-53. YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT MY TRUCK IT IS A 55 1ST SERIES AND THEY CHANGED DESIGN IN MARCH OF 55. TO THE BIG WINDOW DESIGN.

EVEN IF I CAN'T USE IT THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORT. I ALREADY HAVE THE FENDER WITH THE RECESS FOR SPARE SO TO MAKE IT LOOK RIGHT I REALLY NEED TO GET A MOUNT ON IT TO MAKE IT LOOK RIGHT.

I'll get some measurements for you sometime today.
O.K.,I have different numbers from yours'.
The width center to center of the bolts is 12-7/8".The height is 18" center to center of the bolts.
The angle is 1-1/4" (w and h) x 1/8" thick.Total length is 19-7/8".
I forgot to measure the rods.Looked like 3/8. I'll get them in a while and post.
The rods are 1/2".The ends for the bolts are stamped flat and drilled.Then bent in the direction needed for connection.

Mike.

I'd like to see what you build!
The thicker angle should work better too.
Schedule 80 pipe is tough!If you need to bend it or flatten the ends,get a torch-much easier!
Good luck!
Mike.

Looks like the truck is an early 55.It has the older generation style fenders on it ( I'm assuming since they don't appear in the pics)going by the cab style.
The new design 55 has a new cab/bed and that is what my parts would be used on.
You might want to do some research before buying these parts from me.
Mike.
I would be interested in the one for the 3200 long bed. I have a 57 long bed 3200 and I cant find one anywhere.

Thanks
Kyle

Kyle,the one I have is on a 66 Chevy 1/2 ton long step-side.
They are hard to find !
It sits lower on the bed side and is very different than the short bed.The fender is very different too. The cut-out for the tire is lower and more forward than the short bed.
I'll look at it tomorrow to see if it's worth using.
Mike.
