Left behind: Payload Exceeded

I am not sure if in the early to mid 1960's if "max payload" was considered when buying a new pick-up. I can hear it now, "Yeah, let's go ahead and put that last cord on top, save us a trip back across the field and look, its gettin' dark and I'm hungry." They made it about half way home and POW the bed literally snaps off the frame. Now these are good, God fearing people up in the mountains, but as soon as they got out of the cab to see what happened I suspect they were swearing at that truck like it was a rented mule. Its been almost fifty years and they were so angry that they left it right where it broke down - 150 yards from the barn.
