Tilt bed..

Anyone ever put a tilt bed on a 47-54 chevy pickup?? Any ideas would be great. Just thinking about it right now. Cant seem to find any info anywhere. This site has been the best source of info I've found. So i figure I'd start here.

If you just want it to tilt there are several companies that make hoists for smaller trucks..I think even Northern Tool or tractor supply may have them..

Well in that case one would need to put some kind of subframe under the existing bed..Just look at it and put on the thinking cap and a solution will show itself..

When those trucks were new you could order a hoist for them. I see many 3/4 tons on the farms around here with them. Check out some farm auctions and see if you can find a truck with one. They usually go for a premium though. Pull the hoist out and resell your new purchase without the hoist.

As Homebrew says, there were a lot of those trucks, mostly the one tons, with hoists installed for farmwork.They were a "scisser" type,a rail mounted on the truck frame, mated to a rail on top of it with a hinge at the back.An hydraulic cylinder sat flat in there above the driveshaft on the mecanism to lift it.The truck bed was attached to the top hoist rail.Putting one on a truck with a bow like you have always looked like h#ll because it raised it up on the frame and threw out the bodylines.
