Hello, complete noob to forums in general. Anyway, I just traded my 2002 ford zx2 to my neighbor for this 1979 d-50 and 300 bucks. It runs and drives, 2.0 with a 4 speed and the fiberglass stepside bed, complete with the original Altered Certification Label tag.
it says it was built by Budd Anderson ENT., Inc. in Charlotte NC. I can't really find much info on this bed or the company, I've only found 1 post on here mention briefly about this bed in passing, and 1 video on Youtube of one that had been turned into a drag truck. It definitely needs some love, the floors are about gone, the bed has some pinhole spots and the fiberglass needs some repair in a few spots, hood is trashed, wires are a rats nest,taillights need to be wired and wipers don't work. The good is it runs and drives, its original, all glass is good, no major dents, and the bed is awesome!
