I saw what I believe is a Mazada ( How do you spell that anyway??) on
a '40 or 41 a while ago, the sides of the cab had been extended with the
old Mazada cab corners which had been filled and blended to match the
'41 body. It was a straight body, "Styleside??) not the step type.
Actually looked pretty good, but they had set the whole thing on a full
size frame which caused the tires to extend beyond the fenders. They
used fender flares and custom aluminum diamond plate running boards to
make the rear look good, but the front just wasn't right.
I considered doing that sort of thing on a '47 using a Ranger "Splash"
bed, not the ugly new style that looks like it got hit hard in the rear
to put fender bumps on a Styleside, but the early one that has real
fenders. On a pre '48 the Ranger is a bit wide, but I think it would
work well on a '53. I do think it would take some other mods to make it
look right, you just couldn't bolt on a bed and say "Gee Wiz", 'cause it
would never look "right". It would take a whole custom look to get where
it ought to be. The 150 series is just way to wide to work, it'd have to
be cut all to pieces and rebuilt to make it fit correctly.

Did you see the '37 Ford (approx) with the late model S-10 box with the
wild paint scheme (yellow with multi-coloured graphics)? I have seen
trucks in Pigeon Forge with late model GM boxes that looked good and I
saw a '65 F-100 with a late model (about '95) Ford step side box which
looked really good. I have yet to see a mid-50s F-100 with a late model
box as of yet but I would be interested in seeing what it looks like. My
own 53 is currently box-less so this is an option I have been

Subject: late model flareside bed on a 53
At the Woodward Dream Cruise last weekend, and one time when I was in
Toronto, I saw an loder mid-50's truck with a late model Stepside/Flareside
bed. I do no know the newer beds all that well, so I could not tell if it
was a Ford or a Chevy bed. I have seen this on two seperate trucks.
Has anybody ever seen this/done this before. I only got a quick look at both
trucks, but at a glance they looked pretty darn good like that..
I might be mistaken, but if the tail lights were short and rather squarish
then it was a Ford. If they were tall, it was the "other leading brand". I
have seen some chebies around Memphis with the late stepsides on them -- they
look OK. There was a 58 in Pigeon Forge the last two years that had an early
80's stepside on it.

I am interested to try to trade my 69 Mustang coupe project for a pickup
or panel. I can give further info if anyone would be interested. The
mustang is clean, with a brand new 351. I value it at around $2500 but
would trade down.
