Where can I get bed wood for my ’47 1 ton panel truck? The wood is in good shape, but there is one soft spot at the rear doors. I have looked on several websites that sell bed wood, but I haven’t been able to find long bed panel wood.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I didn’t know about the bed forum, Thanks!
I gave Mar-k’s robot all my info. They got back to me about using their special request form. The form mentions “We cannot make boards wider than 9" or longer than 107". My panel Truck is in the shop, so I’ll have to wait to get the measurements. I found some dimensions but it’s hard to tell if it’s 106 or 108, and that’s just the cargo area, not specifically the wood.
Chevs of the 40’s has Long bed Pine Wood, and lists the 1947 ES Panel, but every other truck is on the list too. Bob’s Chevy Trucks has 1-ton long bed stepside, and mentions “Fits 107 1/4" Truck Beds”
I’d like to salvage the bed wood if I can. It is not warped, my biggest fear is putting in new wood and it warps. I saw that Mar-k kiln dries the show quality Oak, not sure if the Pine is treated the same.
