Default wide bed box value

on the east coast, I see regular pu beds in good condition sell for around 500.-700.


the fenders go for around 300.


so my question is- I never see wide beds or fenders for them for sale.


do they command a premium?

The wide bed fenders are made out of a special metal called "nonuntainium"

I think you could "section" coupe/ roadster fenders and mount them on your widebed, the coupe fenders are around an inch or so wider that the wide bed.

I sold a set of widebed fenders a few years ago for a LOT more than $900.I didn't even try to set the price.I had a couple of people interested in them,and one guy said he didn't want to get into a bidding war.He told me what he would pay and all I said was,they're yours.

Fenders can be made
Sedans work better to convert

I bought mine for $380 shipped to my door a few months ago. Another pair were on ebay for a long time at $400. I would have bought them, but had money tied up in other parts. They come around, just keep an eye out.
