Thanks Abe. The truck doesn't belong here, but the bed does, and I figure this thread is about the bed. It went directly from a '59 onto a '47 with no alteration whatsoever, so I figure it's exactly the same as a '48-56 stakebed. BTW, I recently bought an old portable 4 cyl welder and some PO has 'OL ABE' in large letters across the housing. It just dawned on me the other day it got it's name because it's a Lincoln Welder.
