Does anyone have the width of the bed wood for a 1946 1/2 ton? Mar-K was helpful with telling me there are 7 Boards in the 46 and how long they are but would not disclose the width. I see from photo's that the center board is wider than the others. I hope you can help me with this question. BED BOARDS X X X X X X X 1 23456 7 How wide is the center board (4) and the boards on each side of center (3 & 5) ? Then boards 1, 2, 6, 7 ?
Thank you very much for your help.
I'm sure others will appreciate this info also. Harold
I'm trying to refurbish the bed boards on my '46 1/2 ton. Someone here already pointed out that my back fenders aren't true to a' 46...and then I come here to get the dimensions and realize that the exact dimensions posted for a 46 = 7 boards. Mine clearly has six.
1) What year range would that make my bed?
2) Does anyone have the dimensions for the six boards?
Thank you in advance!
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a truck...and that's pretty much the same thing.
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.)

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.
