Looking for 40 long bed info

MAR-K is doing some research on the 40 Long beds and we are looking for anyone who could supply pictures and information regarding these trucks. We are now making the 40 short bed sides and wanted to know the differences between these and the long beds. Particularly - the diameter of the bed side curl, the way the tailgate fastens to the bed sides (specfically, is it like the short beds), and any other helpful information. We have many parts that we believe could fit these beds, but we need this information to be sure.
We are also looking for an original 1940 tailgate chain (short or long) if anyone has one and could share pictures, etc.
You can respond to the post or email me directly - webmaster@mar-k.com
Thanks so much for letting us be a part of the community!

I can't help you much with that, but I will be following this thread very carefully! When you have collected all that 411 and release those long bedsides... I would like to be first to recieve them! cool

Keep up the good work!

John

Any chance on pre-ordering a complete 1940 longbed kit minus tailgate?

John:
I'll put you on the list. We don't make any parts until we get accurate information. So I hope we get some responses!

Mar-Ktech, I have a 1939 AC-102 GMC Long Bed. Unlike the Chevy's the GMC's have the same bed in '39 and '40. The truck is apart currently, but the bed is still all in one piece. If you could give me a list of exactly what you need I will be glad to take some pictures and measurements to help you out. Let me know. Thanks, Al al_kasishke@yahoo.com

All the 1.5 ton Open Express trucks from 1932 to 1940 used the same p/n 460081 tailgate. I can send you some pictures of the end gate if you can email me your postal address and pay for the postage. The Chevrolet box sides are the same for 1939 and 1940 p/n 471715 left hand and p/n 471716 right hand. believe the tops of the box sides were a smaller diameter tube shaped top on a flared out box top.


34 & 35 trucks are the greatest

I'm going to move the whole post over there because there is some good info here that will come in handy to someone in a future search.
