looking for a truck bed

I got a 1965 GMC pickup and I'm looking for a short bed for it but not a step side if possible. I'm new to this hole Restoring thing so any help please.

Welome to the site Tim... a man after my own heart.

You should actually be asking for this in the Classifieds section of this website, I think.

So anyway ... your truck was originally a 6-ft bed, or was it 8-ft?
Rear leaf springs or coils?

If it is leaf-spring, you should have a look at CPP's (Classic Performance Parts trailing arm / coil suspension conversion kits

These guys have everything you need to modernize that old truck to something that steers easier, brakes harder, and handles much better.
