"All the 59's (and many other years) used various hardwoods from their local regions."

I am always interested in seeing new documentation, especially 60-72.

I used beech. Closed grain and stained it black. Very hard wood. If your truck will be anything but a show truck no clear finish will last outside.

Not tryin to get off-topic with a stupid question, but has anyone ever tried "engineered hardwood flooring" over top of plywood in a truck box?

It comes in many shades and I think it looks good; and if its "kitchen rated" it should be tough enough for anything you might load on it.

I searched on SBP but nothing came up.

I've installed thousands of square feet of this stuff.
The issue would be if it gets wet like a soaking rain storm. The engineered wood is not friendly with water. Extra precautions are needed when installing in a kitchen.
I don't think you could make it totally water proof.

Thanks Wayne, I never thought of that.
