Looking for any leads for a telephone company utility bed for my 1952 3100. Bed would have the slant rear panel. Thanks, cbccolee@aol.com

To really do a proper restoration, you need the tools and equipment to go with the truck.

Yep, that is what i am looking for. Would be a good project and somewhat different. Don't know about the tools though. Nice thought.

Finding one is going to be hard. I would make a list of manufacturers who have made the utility beds and search the Internet.
For instance York-Hoover. Member search for Freddy518 here on Stovebolt. Send him a PM.

Beware these utility beds have metal doors, drawers and other parts that will sing a noise to you going down the road.
Can't beat the cool factor though.

There used to be one of those on a 50s Dodge in a wrecking yard out here in Napa area.
That was couple yrs. ago.
