Ok, I cannot stop kicking a dead horse or maybe it's just me trying to provide useful information . It would appear that my 1954 3/4 Ton, 3604, truck probably had the bed painted the same color as the truck body. Ocean Green. Its a Kansas City built truck and that may be the difference? Here are photo's of the area under one of the rear fenders , pics of "under" the bed washers and of the bed strips.

Keep kicking that dead horse. LOL!

The more information we have, the better off we are. It sure makes sense that everything was painted the same color.

My eyesight is dimming - what is/was the color of the metal strips between the pieces of bed wood?

Thanks

Dusty's 4th picture shows it clearest. Everything was painted Ocean Green (the same color as the bedside beneath the fender location). You can see that the wood was painted before the offset washers were installed where the hold-down bolts are. I think I can see some green on the carriage bolts for the bed strips also, so the floor and cross-sills would have been installed, then the whole thing painted body color.

Ocean green. I think this limited paint "survived" because the previous owner had installed a 3/16 sheet of steel plate over the entire bed and had welded it to the top of the rear sill. My chop job isn't pretty but it'll get cleaned up later.
