A company in Texas bought factory new trucks, cut a foot of the bed out, and grafted a fiberglass section to the back of cabs of many factory trucks back in the '80s.

From my understanding, they were modified by a conversion company. Apparently at the time of ~$6k.

Does anyone have a brochure or additional info on the company that performed these conversions?

It has been discussed before. I believe there were two companies that built these (could have been one though.) The Texas company that made a few is now defunct. If someone knows the name of this company, please let us know.
