I have a bunch of the AMT 1960 Chevy trucks which are fleetside beds
Aaron, if you would like to trade one of these beds for something, drop me a PM please

The fleetside box came into being in '59 with the long wheel base '58 Chevy and GMC's all being stepsides. The 59 long box was a one year only piece because in 1960, they went to the box design that carried right on through to 1966. Again, in 1967, they went to a new style box that was used until 1972 .
and uh.. likewise - if you want to part with one of those fleetside boxes.. *nudge nudge, wink wink* *grins*

This is a pic of my buddy Sqeeze's '58 3200 (longbed 1/2 ton) from Stovebolt.com.

On a 1:1 the stepside boxes are the same from around 1954 through 1987 or what ever the last year they made it. The only difference was until 1972 they also had a longbox stepside and the fenders changed with the body styles. I had a 1969 GMC long box 3/4T 4x4 and I found this out when I was looking for a replacement box. Just realized part of this was already stated sorry. But the earlier bed side tops sloped at about a 45 degree angle. This was the box from the 30s until 1953.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.. I never knew that they had the fleetside in '58. I stand corrected and yes, I knew about the tailgate being the same but never realized the headboard was also the same. Guess you learn something new every day.
They had The fleetside Cameo Carrier in 1955 1/2 body style to 1957 but all it was was a stepdide with fiberglass fenders. As seen here:
