Vintage Pickup Camper Shell?
#1
In a few months I'll be buying a full size vintage (70s to 1985) pickup truck.  Best, naturally, if I can find what I need with camper shell included.  But if not---will I be able to find a camper shell to fit?  I will be relocating & towing an enclosed cargo trailer.  Intend to load the camper shell as well as the trailer.

Thanks all,

If you're on Facebook go to truck cap camping. Mike, the gentleman who runs the page has a super clean older Chevy with a period appropriate cap on it for sale. And I do mean super clean.

I've looked into this before for my 65 Dodge Truck. It is very hard to find a well fitting camper shell for your exact model older truck, I sold mine many years ago and recently wanted to get another, .  By far the best way is to find a vintage truck with a fitted camper shell from the period already on it.

Thanks for the tip, MP.

I am not on Facebook, however.  Also will not be in a position to buy a truck for some months yet. 
Forming my plan now, tho.  When I am ready to hunt/buy a truck I will ask again here for leads! 
I realize finding a vintage truck with camper shell narrows the field, but one can hope...

Cheers,

There are several for sale on craigslist in Spokane.  If your looking for some old school cool, there is a couple of Alaskan truck campers.

I will post pics in the future. when I say we, it's my buddy and me we split the cost. we are going to take off the highly desirable parts and then we will reassemble with other parts or part out what's left. highdesertranger
