Welcome aboard; have you check ebay? I usually see one or two there; I have also purchase some at swap meets as well. I usually don't worry aobut whether or not they work; I use them more eye candy than entertainment.
Transistor units appear in 64. Earlier units are tube and fairly easy to have fixed.
The bumper will not fit as you have a 3 bolt and the 65 is a two bolt. It can be adapted by removing the 3 bolt brackets and adding 2 bolt brackets.
I would recommend you have the tube radio upgraded to modern internals for AM FM and built in MP3 i pod interfaces. It is costly but well worth the effort as you do not then need a secondary system.

Thanks to both of you and that's a cool upgrade to the radio, I was thinking about something like that but didn't know you could have it done. I will probably be getting all of the above including bumper. I was just guessing on the year model of the donor truck but I did notice it had 3 bolts on each side for the bumper. Where can I get my radio upgraded though?
