Default 32 pick up bed dimensions?

Hello guys I'm planning to build my own bed for my roadster 32 cowl, I knows the 32 roadster are very rare and have a differences with the roadster coupe cowl, my cowl It's belong to a phaeton car cut... It's any difference with the roadster coupe and the roadster pick up in terms of sub rails, please anyone would bring me the dimensions for a 32 pick up bed, I understand that's the passenger car and the pick up chassis are the same, only don't know if the chassis rails in the rear are flat or have a slow down form like the chassis car, Wouldn't find a pics of a bed mounting....
I've recollected a few pics for the web and The Hamb threads, but no have any results at this moment!!

Thank's Leandro

Try Mack Hils in Missouri They manufacture PU beds and they have a dimension chart. I think they have a website with an online catalog that may give what you need

The '32 passenger car and commercial vehicle chassis frames are identical in all respects, including rearward of the rear axle. Here's a couple of photos of the brackets that attach to the rear of the frame rails to support the bed of a pickup.

Do you have the commercial open cab cowl, or a cowl that was cut off from a phaeton? They are two totally distinct designs and not comparable. The phaeton cowl is the same as a passenger roadster.

The subrails are completely different between the various passenger cars and the pickups. The commerical open (roadster) cab does share the same subrails as the closed cab, however, so if you're trying to replicate an open cab pickup starting with only the cowl, that does help.

The "Ford Pickups 1932-1952" booklet is rather worthless when it comes to open cab specific information. It is semi-useful when it comes to other commercial-related information.

Yes I have a phaeton cut car, the cowl, the doors and the part of the cab which supports the seat, I planning to build the pick up cab with the cowl and the doors only, making the seat back and the pick up box...
