I think you may be looking for 60-66 tail gate. Unless your looking for a 55-59 tail gate?

58 to 66 Fleetside tailgates are all the same.
Original one's didn't survive very well as they were the business end of the truck. You're aware new repop one's are available?

Still Looking.

Thanks for your feed back, I feel like those re-pops are very cheaply made and cost a fortune.

Re: 59-66 fleet side tailgate

This one is a pretty penny. Really not too bad when I can see a repop runs around $500 delivered

Or for $350 shipping charge you can have a worse tailgate

Re: 59-66 fleet side tailgate

And I would think a GMC would run more than a CHEVROLET. Nope, only $250 for a GMC

Re: 59-66 fleet side tailgate

I have resolved the case! People today are not aware that the tailgate goes to a specified vehicle. They are actually convinced that it is a back rest for a bench seat. So if you do a search for tailgate bench seats, your almost more likely to find the tailgate than you would be searching for the tailgate.

Re: 59-66 fleet side tailgate

Not bench "seat" but bench "art." They are very popular for that.
