It fits just right on a 58 Dodge.

Wonder if that was an intentional pun in the Craigslist ad: "...runs like a champ." :)

I had to do a double take. Remarkable how much the 58 Ford wide bed looks like the 58 Dodge bed.

What is stranger yet is the similar look of the 1950 International Harvester pickup box.

I doubt that IH would have had a Styleside Wide Type Box as early as 1950, but whatever they had, it was likely made by the same People at Budd Corp. that built the Dodge and Studebaker Beds, so any similarities would not be that uncommon.

Didn't those kinda flare out at the bottom of the Bed Sides ?

Also on a 59 and 60 Dodge.

It would be neat to even photoshop a Dodge with that bed sitting next to the Stude with the same P2 bed so we can see how it looked on the Dodge. Craig, I'm sure has a picture or four that he could do that to !
