'65 short/wide bed. A friend is fixing-up this vehicle, supposedly for
his grandson who is 15mths old now...we all know better...anyway he
wants to do away with the chain tailgate supports and use concealed arm
type. IMO it's a mistake, but it's his truck.....er, grandsons truck.
He has found retro kits for the step-side bed types, but not for the
wide tailgate. Any suggestions? Thanks
the chain supports are probably more durable and stronger than the arm
type units. Also, the chain type would look more vintage and correct.
Man, if he's splitting hairs about this crap, looks like he's going for a
hot rod restoration rather than a vintage, original look. Pretty soon,
he'll be shaving the door handles off and painting it yellow and dropping
in a 400 horse V8.
