The Service Body Before the Service Body

When I first got into the auto business in 1972, this photo was a common product. It is a stepside pickup where the outside fender has been removed and a set of boxes mounted in its place. I worked at a Chevy dealership then and we could order this same job straight from the factory. You could also order certain plain flatbeds back then. Bailment Pool body companies as they are today, did not exist then except a very few nationwide. I just happened to have my camera out and was able to catch this view back to the past. It has been a lot of years since I have seen one.
