    I was wondering if anyone here would have the measurement for a 51 ford F1 bed. All the measurements of the entire bed, Like plans if you were going to build your own?

    I recently bought just a bed with a semi decent set of original fenders for 200 dollars. However, the bed has no tailgate mounts and the rolled edge along the the top of the bed rail is missing and looks like it never was there. The bed appears to be as old as the fenders, but I'm wondering if it was made by someone back in the day and not original.

    I'd like the measurements to see if it's the correct size to help me determine if it is worth fixing and using.

    Thanks for your help

    It would be easier to tell if you'd post pictures of the bed.

  3. 48-52 used 2 different bed styles

    The one shown above is 1948-mid 1950
    it has the curved bottom stake pockets
    embossed bedsides

    mid 1950 to 1952 are like shown below
    square bottom stake pockets
    flat panel bedsides

    The tailgate hardware is also different between the 2 styles

    no measurements but a good view:
