They Build Classis Pickup Beds
Three men who started out as truck collectors now make and sell quality truck beds and other parts for all models of pickups across the U.S. and Canada.
  "Our motto is ŠIf we wouldn't put it on our own truck, we won't sell it,' " says Pete Colwill, one of the three owners of Pro's Pick in Arthur, Ont. "Our main focus is pickup beds for 1930 to 1980 trucks."
  Pro's Pick epoxy-primes 16-gauge, satin-coated steel truck bed parts that can be assembled by customers in 4 to 6 hrs. The beds have plug-welded construction so customers don't have to spend a lot of time smoothing out spot welds.
  For older truck models, Pro's Pick offers oak floors with smooth stainless steel strips in between, secured with sliding bolts so there are no projecting bolt heads.
  "Some of our beds are going on $250,000 trucks," Colwill says. "Many of our customers were street rodders in the 50's and 60's." To satisfy customers, the company pays attention to quality material and labor.
  Cost for the sidewalls and front for most truck bed models starts at $1,475. The cost is about $2,900 with wood floors and a tailgate. Pro's Pick also makes custom beds and sells powered aluminum bed covers and tailgates, and a full line of fenders, running boards, and most body parts needed for restoration.
