    Can anyone tell me what's the difference between the 1958 and 1964 slongbed stepsides?
    I know the wheelbase is different and I would replace the fenderwells a bit forward proberbly.
    But how much and what are the pitfalls?
    I can trade a 1964 stepside for a 1964 fleetside bed and want to put it on my 1958 longbed truck that I do not have a bed for.

    How much work would it take to make the conversion
    I suppose I need other stepplates as well
    Does anyone have a site or youtubelink to go to.
    Do not want to reinvent the wheel
