canopy?

Ok, so I have a canopy on my 94' long box and am thinking about finding a 76'-77 long box truck. Will the canopy on my newer truck fit the older bed/cab? I have heard people say the beds were all the same size since 67' and the cabs from 73-97 had the same angle. If this is true it should fit and look ok, just thought I would verify before I sell my 94' and keep my canopy for when I find a old dent side.

I don't know for sure, but if you have to sell the 94 just keep the cap and if it doesn't work with the dentside when you get one sell the cap then.

The cap should fit. The 80-96 cabs have a straighter back wall than a 73-79 would have. A friend had a factory cap from a 73-79, and the front of the top would rub against the top of the cab on his '85. Those caps were plenty heavy. He and I carried it about 100' through snow to get it onto the truck once.
