Auto Shop Turns Great-Grandfather's Truck Into A Custom Bed

Lex Gabrielle 22 Feb 2021

There are many things in life that are special and sentimental to families. When it comes to items that our families cherish, it's hard to find a place for them when they begin to get older and fall apart. For example, trucks and cars can be passed down in families for generations. But, eventually, they too old to continue driving them.

Sometimes, family members will work on older cars to keep them around.

Instead of keeping the truck up and running as a car, they repurposed it to give their son as a bed. How clever is that?!?

The original taillights, color, and windshield were kept in place for the bed. And, all they did was remove the actual bed of the truck to make room for a real bed.
