    Does it have the transfer case? If so, I may be interested.

    Damn! Was hoping for a 205 case as I need one for the '74 you found for me.

    Figured a way to get the title for the '74. A buddy of mine said to go to the local mechanics shop and have him put out a mechanics lien on it. When it goes back to the PO and they don't reply, I can apply for a new title and call it done. May cost up to $50 but it'll be worth it.

    Still got it. Its tucked away in the shed behind my new home. Got MAJOR plans for it once I get my credit cards paid off. :wink1:

    Right now, I'm in the "rounding up" stage for parts. I got a 350 four bolt main engine waiting to get rebuilt, waiting to hear back from Goose on his K-case 350 tranny, and now looking for a 205 t-case to put behind it.

    My plans are to build the motor up and use World Products Sportsman II heads on it. The tranny is gonna get built with either TCI or B&M parts. I'm not building this for mileage/economy, but rather to do sand, hill, mud and snow driving/playing for next year.
    A 3" body lift and new 35" tires with 10" wide wheels are also on the planning list, too.
