Default Need help on 32 bed

Hi all
I've got parts for my 1932 pickup bed, but some are missing so I wonder if anyone could be kind and upload some photos showing the underside of the bed so I could understand how the cross members looks like and others.
I've only got the sides and front lid and rear lid, so any photos/explanation of the rest of it is really helpful

Thanks
Ulf

Recommend you get a copy of MAC HILs catalog. It has excellent original bed pics as well as diagrams.

I only have some topside photos of the shortened bed I used on my '32. JimTN is right , the mac catalog has some very good diagrams. I hope these help.

Thanks guys, The Mack catalog does not get a perfect view from my perspective, your photos is much better! I hope someone could shot in something more close ups and from underside

Maybe these from a 1934 will help.

If you are restoring your truck, make the floor correct that is with the metal pan over wood. So many so called restored trucks have open wood floors with metal strips which are not correct.

Thanks a lot guys! I will try to make my own cross members and subrails and see where it ends...
Anyone having more photos?

I also need dimensions, for example:
Distance between cab and bed
Installation height of the bed

Thanks!
