    And there's no "fleetside" or "wide bed" for a 47-54/early 55. But you could make one using quarters from a panel or suburban. Lot of work, but it would be very cool.

    As I recall, they made a pickup from a panel truck on "Bitchin' Rides". High end/lot of work/but very nice.

    Yep, that 'fleetside' they *made* on bitchin rides was very cool.. the nicest Chevy truck of that era that I've ever seen (by far)... but a fella named John Davis (from Mississippi) once brought an 'early '55' to our local car show that he had made into an 'extended cab pickup'.. that one was extremely nice as well...

    THIS is a "fleetside"? I thought a fleetside didn't have any rear fenders.

    I know that, but the other guys called it a "fleetside". The pic I posted is the one from Bitchin' Rides they're referring to.

    I love that blue truck it reminds me of my Dads 56. Wish we would have kept it, hated the 64 he bought to replace it.
