This bed is original to my 1951 GMC 1 ton, though it was obviously surplus when installed in 1951.
Bed was made 1945.

See pictures for condition but I expect it's better than most, not rusty. Some extra holes for taillights and such.
Plywood floor is just tacked on top of original bed wood. I have not pulled it up to look from the top but it feels pretty solid, I have been using it as a truck and nothing has fallen through yet.

Still installed on my truck, happy to remove and load with forklift when sold.

Asking $1500.

A friend who knows more about these trucks/beds than I do stopped by to look at it yesterday.
Overall he says it is in quite good shape.
I learned:
Tool box door (licence plate bracket) is welded shut, missing part of the box behind it.
The wood, although old, may not be original.
