I came up with some interesting info referencing running boards. I had bought a set of what I thought was the right stuff for my 108 wheelbase as I made a rookie mistake and bought the shorter of the two that I found thinking my 108 would be the short ones compared to my 126 B2D parts truck... I was wrong. I got a set of 60" boards straightened and cleaned up, extracted 4 busted bolts and chased all the threads, POR and then POR top coat, installed on the truck and then started fitting the bed.... As many of you already saw the punch line comming - ... the space between the front fender and the back fender is about 64 inches! If I can find a god set of 64" boards I will be posting the 60's on our classifieds . If not I'll be building a 4 inch spacer ;-) Anyone know of a source for the 64" boards? I added this link as it may help someone else sort out what they need before they head down the path I did. Just another subtle differences between the 50s and 40s trucks... Cheers. J
These panels were on this car when I bought it but they are rusted out. Check out the photo. These do away with the conventional running board and replace it with just a rocker panel. Somewhere the original owner found these, but I can't. I've done searches but I can't find these on any other 40 plymouths. Anyone know where to find these or what they are called? Thanks for any help John
