Hey! New to the forum, never been on one before. I have a 1964 C10 getting rebuilt shortly. Long story short, I was rear ended pretty badly a couple months ago. I'm fine, my truck is a different story. It's currently a step side, I want to change it to fleetside for a different look. Having trouble locating a box. Is LMC the best choice or there is a place close enough to me I can order parts from. Located in Ontario Canada. Would appreciate any advice on what direction to take. I think finding parts from originals is a little difficult around here.

Welcome to Stovebolt forums. smile Mar-K could help you out with stepside, but unfortunately don't have the outer panels for fleetside trucks.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

I will 2nd that Welcome to Stovebolt! wave

As you are mighty close to New York state, you may have better luck than you think in trying to locate a fleetside bed. You just have to deal with the cross border purchase requirements, but maybe worth the effort and cheaper than trying to import from afar???

Take a look at Craigslist, FB Marketplace and maybe even Kijiji and you might be pleasantly surprised.

You could also place an ad here in our own Truck Parts Wanted section of the Stovebolt Swap Meet

Looking forward to more conversations in the forums! thumbs_up

Hi,
Agree. Welcome aboard. Jim Carter Truck Parts, Aspen Auto parts, 4, 5,6 chevy truck parts and LMC are all pretty good for used parts, except LMC (mainly only new). All these are located in KS or MO, except for aspen.

FB marketplace is great for local parts near you, i've found many parts that way.

Good luck

I have seen people selling beds and parts of beds for what I would consider reasonable if you are looking to keep original metal.

If not someone posted a while back about a place that makes a complete cab for these trucks. I bet them make bed parts too.

Don't overlook trailers made from these beds, the old truck konked out and they just cut the frame, bent it together and make a trailer out of it, I have purchased several and usually in decent shape except for the wood
