Is this a 1/2,3/4, 1 ton P/U or is it a 1 ton cab and chassis, long or short wheelbase ?

If it is a pickup truck with the box rusted off then your better off finding a local welding shop build you a bed. If its a 1 ton cab and chassis with a 34 inch wide frame then you have all kinds of choices from cheap stamped steel to heavy built decks. Then you have aluminum or steel.

A 75 truck is old it would have to be in pretty good shape to be worth putting money into.

3/4 ton, new engine and tranny, long bed 4x4 dana 60 in front end. Its a tuff truck with less than a 100 ooo original mles. The bed is rusted and we nee a dumper anyway. Itb was a goverment truck that was modified but never used.

Try EBAY, I bought mine for $500, I just waited till I found the right one in my area. Might check Craigslist also.

A 8x7 or 9x7 flatdeck isn't that expensive to build then you can have something the way you want it.
