  • P-2 6-1/2 ft CHAMP pick-up bed, anyone interested?

    Been wanting to switch out the wide bed on my Champ for a narrow P-1 since the day I bought it. Selling the P-2 bed will help speed this process along. Anyone interested in a solid 6-1/2 ft P-2 wide bed with tailgate delivered to York $600.00

        Bob, I know the wide bed was standard on 62 Champs, but I'd really rather have the narrow. I already have a nice set of fenders and an 8ft narrow bed I can cut down, but I know a super guy in Calif. who is treating me right on a 6-1/2 footer if I can work out and afford the shipping :-)

          Thanks, I did send him a PM when he first told us of his misfortune, but got no reply. I hope he is able to work things out with the insurance company!

            Hey guys, I've been a little frantic lately, but I'm convinced my Champ is going to be repaired to a high standard. While it's waiting for a flatbed ride across town it's back at Mike's garage (a block from my house). The starter bendix finally ground to a halt. In tracking down it's replacement I discovered that the engine is probably 1958 or 59 Lark by the ID on the Delco-Remy starter. It has a Flight-O-Matic 2 speed automatic. I believe it's also a Borg-Warner tranny. The truck was born a 3 speed no Overdrive. Mike had me send for a R&R ring gear rebuild because some gears were missing and are ground down more than he liked. I don't have the skills for the repair but I love my truck. Sorry about the PM mix up. My computer skills are also not up to par. I mailed the gear assembly off to Precision in Iowa. They said the turnaround will be about 2-3 days. I understand that they are going to grind the old gear out & then weld the new one in & then balance the whole operation. Forgive me for my ignorance on the operation & connection of all the parts involved. What is the relation of the torque converter to the other parts connected to the starter motor. I agree... I also prefer the P1 bed but the P2 holds a sheet of plywood nicely between the fenders. LarkTruck: I wish I could handle getting your bed but working on restoring a building so budget is tight. I'll eventually have the space. Thanks for everybody's help. Robert

            P.S. I also responded to Ron Dame who had a lead on a P2 box in NC. Sorry if you didn't get my pm. Ron helped me with a rebuilt Ross steering box when I needed one.

                Will do. 52 ragtop had good advice also on how to conduct myself with the field adjuster. He arranged for a rental truck even though the body shop doesn't yet have the truck. They are concerned with the leaking gas tank liability. New issue is the left fender & door rubbing & paint chipping off.
