I was aware the square holes in the roadster pickup beds was for stakes if carrying bulky stuff, but until now I haven't noticed any pictures of a '25-'27 pickup with actual stakes.

Here's an ebay auction for the body parts of a RPU - with stakes. Could they have been Ford supplied as accessories or do you think they were aftermarket accessories/ home made?

It looks like an early '26 bed - later on the front stake holes were moved back so the top could be lowered with stakes in place.

Ford Body Parts and Price List book shows no part number for bed stakes.

The owner made his own. And the early '26 bed, Aug-Dec could not have a front stake either! The front stake pocket was under the seat overhang.

So Ford made a change in the pickup bed and moved those front stake pockets back 7".

Has anyone ever seen any original FORD literature for the 1925? All I have is original magazine ads.
