    7911F1C1-008E-4295-A038-1184E9AF3EE3.jpeg Hey Guys.

    I am after some measurements for the 1931 Model A Pickup Bed. The improved one not the earlier one.

    The first measurement I need is the overall depth from the base up to where the fold starts.

    The other three measurements needed are the width of the fold, the width of the floor and the depth of the sides from the floor to the fold.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Been messing with a '33 bed that I was going to shorten and run on '32 rails...
    Almost all the re-pop parts I see listed run from '31 widebed to '37 pick up bed... except for the head board and the bed length/ beadwork...
    If '33 measurements are cool ? …
    i'll shovel a path out to it, bring my camera, tape measure, clip board and a sharpie...

    That’s appreciated, but there is no need to go out in the snow unless you have to. It will be a while before I start fabricating the bed.

    Warm rain for 2 days, snow dropped 6" … no shoveling...
    bed measurements are from a '33 bed...
    #1 angled flange = 4.25" …
    #3 hight = 14" …
    #2 width = 45.25" … HIH.

    Thanks for the fresh measurements, it’s really pushing me along to get this underway. I made up a paper pattern about a week ago and finished trimming the wheel wells yesterday. The pickup bed will be mildly tubbed to suit the Roadster/Coupe fenders I have. The coupe/roadster fenders are stock but the pickup fenders were more narrow, hence the need for tubs. The tubs will basically be the same as coupe/roadster wheel wells.
