Doesn't look bad this is an 8ft box? And do you have a thread on how you made your own box?

I have taken some sandpaper to it and it goes right to metal with now rust left behind and not steel deterioration. I have 3 tailgates, one good, one fair and one a bit rough. The latches and chains are there but I think one could use replacing. The sides are very straight. The front has a bit of a bow in it probably from loads hitting it, after all it was a truck. I am missing one cross member, not sure what happened there. I have all the metal strips for the box but they are rusty and twisted, probably when the PO took the truck apart. I am not selling the fenders as I am using them on my box. I have built my own box and that is why this one is for sale. Hope the pics are OK as I am not around much during daylight hours. If you need something else let me know.
Side of the box. Yes it is upside down, I have it sitting on a cradle that way.

No it is the regular 6 ft. bed. It is in really good shape. I had thought about keeping it but if I can sell it now along with a few other things I don't need I can put the money into my current build. I have so many ideas but so little time. Any way here is the link to the box I built. Some day soon I will start working on making new fenders.

MIBill,
I think that door was priced at $100.00. I can check on shipping costs
and get some type of final price and see if that works for you.

Maybe it's worse than it looks, but that F1 front clip looks to be way too solid to cut the front off of for a wall hanger. He even clipped an inch off the hood side mouldings. The cab floor and cowl is nice enough it leads me to believe those were good, desirable fenders.
