I wish I could find one with that back window... that is crazy! I love it! Mine fell in my lap a week after I started looking for one. Funny how those things work... now I am looking for the K5 bucket seats and center console... I wish those would fall in my lap the same way! HAHA

Found this one, not sure if the older trucks have different inside bed dimensions.

Re: Truck Caps, Camper Shells, Toppers... call them what you will, lets see them

here is my old 8ft pickup trailer thats not road worthy anymore . so i turned it in to a firewood storage trailer so in the off season i park it out behind my shop .

to keep the wood dry and bake it dry in the summer like a hot box i used this old hightop cap with side slider windows and front slider . so if i need to let it breath i can open them .

this combo works super nice for parking right next to the shop door to get fire wood in the cold season .

but its my truck cap pics of the only one i own .

Funny that you posted a trailer... I have been thinking about building a similar trailer except lowered with matching paint and rims to match my truck... then put my shell on it... I think that would be so sick!!! Hard to find a rust free bed here he Hawaii though.

Re: Truck Caps, Camper Shells, Toppers... call them what you will, lets see them

they trail so nice and smooth behind you i have 2 of them and building a 3rd for a friend out of his spare parts .

blue one did match the old truck perfectly . . .

and cut the frame long in the front right before the firewall area kickup . gives nice long trailer and tool box storage up front for full un wasted box space . the white and red will be getting a storage surface in front of the tool box also this summer. ignore the HUGE i-beam sitting on the tongue . thats my snow plow ballast weight .

done with the thread derail back to the caps . last pic in use stuffed

That would be a score if you could get the whole truck! One shell is enough for me... I already struggle to make room for it if I take it off.

I couldn't get the whole truck, I just started a business so all my extra funds are tied up in it. He was going to scrap the shell so I was able to save it the other day. Every time I try an post a picture I get a security token error now though.

Here is the shell that came with my truck. I took it off and had it stored but a storm tore it up. I would love to find another one.

that canopy is perfect!
matches the era of the truck, not too '70's, but not to modern looking. i would gladly pay $1200 for that....shipping would prob kill it though
looks better than the cab-hi fiberglass i got on my '85

A cap from Dodge and Ford will fit also. BUT any thing from 88 up none of them interchange. That comes from a camper shell builder.
