WTB - camper shell

I'm looking for a period-correct cap or camper shell for my 1970 C10 (fleetside).

Geography is not important - for a nice specimen, I'll cover the cost of shipping it to Virginia. If these are impossible to find, does anyone know of a fabricator that could recreate one?

WTB - camper shell

I'm looking for a period-correct camper shell or truck cap for my 1970 C-10 (fleetside). This seems to be a difficult item to find.

For a nice specimen, I'll cover delivery costs to Virginia.

If finding one is near impossible, does anyone know a fabricator that could make something that at least looks correct?

Thanks!

Re: WTB - camper shell

I know of one listed up here in the frozen tundra:

If you're serious I can take a look at it if it's still available.

What size are you looking for and do you want an aluminum one or a fiberglass one?? I have one that I took off of a truck I purchased that is fiberglass, but would need to know what measurements. Thanks, Jay

OK, thought I would respond and ask some questions to see. Good luck in your search. Have you tried to contact a camper shell manufacturer direct to see if they would build one to your specs? Might be worth a try. Jay

Re: WTB - camper shell

Hi - I have this cap which fits good. It's aluminum and in real nice shape. If it's the look your going for, I may be able to meet you half way.

I am also looking for an 8' quarter panel 68-72 after market (or nice OE).
Thanks,
Wayne
