it is hard to find a tonneau cover for a slick. i looked for years. i did manage to find a camper shell to fit a long bed slick. i really wanted a tonneau cover for a short bed. i finally found one to fit a 73-79 shortbed that was a factory ford cover but i had sold my dent shortbed and could not find another that i wanted. i sold the cover a few months ago to a guy building a 79 lariat 4wd short show truck. very rare piece and the only one i have ever seen . i got $900 out of it and the guy drove a few hundred miles to get it. none of the ones i found fit a slick short. don't buy one until you measure it and make sure it fits. i think you could probably order one new but it would be expensive.

I think it was $400-500. It was only 2 years ago but a lot has happened since then.

Wardlow Top Shop in Ca. used to make them and they also made the Bra's or mask's to go on front to keep bug chips away.

I know they are still in business but not sure if they have changed directions with the time changes. Look them up and give them a call.
