Only person that made something like that was a custom builder in the SBG forums named "Customotive Modeling & Fabrication" Or "Customotive Scale RC". I don't know if he's been active recently though and you're talking $200+ for one.

JK RC makes 3D printed 1976 and 1979 Ford truck bodies, those are the closest I have seen.

Ford F-150 - JKRC

Interesting, but I would be wary of a full PLA printed body.

i have that one. i haven't built it up yet but yes the PLA scares me since i live in east county san diego where 100+ in the summer is normal and my garage probably gets close to 120.
but its a great body and mr Kim is easy to work with.

now if you don't mind a slightly smaller truck, Jconcepts makes a lexan body but its closer to 1:12 scale. decent if you run smaller wheels and narrowed axles. (i also had RC Nerds on shapeways resize a 79 grill so im sure you could find somebody do the same for a 75.)
here is my super long build thread, feel free to ask me about anything. i pretty much racked my brain for all things 1:10 F body. the traxxas bronco is a great source for detail parts also.

and here is the Jconcepts lexan with RC Nerds grill, bumper, and mirrors.

and here is the JK3D cab on the same chassis with updated/larger tires.

fits like a GLOVE. granted, my axles are custom narrowed by CODYBOY.
