I am about to start the restoration of an 1955 F-350. It has a double wheel rear axle and by the time I got it, it had no bed. From some literature about the subject, I know that the F-350 was shipped with either a 9-foot pickup cargo box,or a 9-foot platform or stake body.
Now, the point is: does anyone out there have a picture of an F-350 with a pickup box?? There's a whole lot of pictures of F-100s with any of the above setups fitted, but I could only manage to find a photo of an F-350 with a stake body.
Even if the truck shown was customized, it would not be a problem, as mine is not going to be a stock-like car either.
I would like to know what a pickup bed looks like on the truck because of the longer wheelbase, which might dramaticaly change it's overall appearance compared to the looks of an F-100.
If anyone has some photos, please mail them to
Does anyone know if replacement 9-inch beds are available, or do I have to get a standart one and *stretch* it?

I have a MANUAL Toyota steering box that I will sell for $50 plus
shipping. I purchased box for my '56, but went the IFS, power route.
