I might be confusing your truck with another similar post from several months back. If it's the same post, I thought it was determined that the entire bed and fenders were from another truck - probably not a Chevy.

@46 Chevy truck.
What Otto said.
I'm not real familiar with the 46 beds, but I see on your pic, that your bed has tab sticking out each side for the tailgate chain hooks. I know on AD (47-55) trucks, the holes for the hooks are forward of the rear edge of the bedside.
What are the overall inside dimensions on your bed? A 46 Chevy bed would be 48.5" inside width and 78" inside length (front panel to tailgate.)

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

There was a discussion in May 2022 about this bed it appears.

The bed on my ‘37 Chevy 1/2 ton was replaced by a previous owner. It has six boards each 3/4” thick and 76 inches long. Four boards in the midle measure 7 7/16” wide. Each board on the outsides measure 7 3/4” wide. A photo is attached.
