Dimensions are given for stake beds including side boards and end gates.

Did Chevrolet manufacture these bodies, or sub them out? I would guess they were subcontracted. Anyone have any information? Thanks.

Those trucks/configurations were available, as shown, from a Chevrolet Truck factory as standard equipment.

Most likely they were assemble by Chevrolet.

Of course, people would often buy the cab and chassis from their dealer and then have a local manufacturer place any sort of special bed or body on it. My COE was manufactured in Kansas City, worked in eastern South Dakota and has a grain bed on it from Sioux City, Iowa. The hydraulic lift on the bed is from Cherokee, Iowa. So, the buyer would source the equipment locally.

I don't know about production for civilian bodies, but WW2 Chevy trucks had their bodies/beds produced by other companies such as Budd, Hercules, or Heil.
