    If that box is original to the truck, your "1940" is actually a 1931. Wide boxes were a '31 thing.

  5. I was originally thinking it was a wide box but after blowing the photo up could it be a optical illusion with the bed being so short? :confused: HRP

    Regular A boxes had a rounded lower corner on the rear stake pockets, that rolled all the way under. This one doesn't, it has square corners. They stick out, even with that shadowy picture.

    But some will say it may be a '32 on up box....to which I say look at the front panel. See the arch on top? That's a '31 wide bed thang.
     
  10. You know a heck of a lot more about Model A,,so I will concede that it is indeed a wide bed. HRP

    My plans with this is to stay 60's and leave the the body and interior alone! maybe rechrome a few things but it will have a pontiac 389 in it and it wont be getting chopped or channeled its gonna sit high in the front like a 60's drag car!
