I had the great opportunity to meet Grigg and check out this bed about a month ago. It is excellent condition both in terms of straightness and lack of rust. The bed is most certainly a cargo bed as it was manufactured by the Budd company, they only produced beds for military cargo truck variants in 1940-45. The toolbox portion is missing, but it can readily be reproduced from sheet metal and wood as used originally. When we were probing around, I am not completely certain the wood portion of the composite bed is original as the planks were tongue-in-groove...I am fairly certain the planks should be much like the civilian trucks, straight edges with grooves for skid strips. Overall, a quite nice starting point for someone looking to restore a late production WW2 Chevy cargo truck. Although not 100% accurate from a construction standpoint (ie it has a wood plank bed surface vs welded metal), it could also be used on an early 1939-40 Dodge VC military truck. Gasp, did I really type "Dodge" on a General Motors website!!!
