That may be true with one ton 1955-1959 also. I've never seen one but there should have been a demand for them!The 48 - 54 Chevrolets had a nine foot bed available. They were one ton pickups.
Looks like he's got another nice one there in the yard too!The fella that has the orange GMC I posted yesterday, seen this in his yard today. And while stopped to take that picture saw a 67 four door chev goin along.
Speaking of motor homes, I've got a "Born Free Detachable Motor Coach" sitting here we have never camped in yet. My wife's Uncle stopped by one day and unloaded it. He said "the wife can't get up in the bunk any more, so it's yours now"! Like I needed another project! The camper is a 1972 so it's actually perfect for my '72 GMC. I need to build a specific back bumper for the truck that has mounts in it and a couple of forward frame mounts for the camper to fit securely, then wire it and put a trailer brake in the truck. It's in better shape that the truck though! That's a whole nuther story!
