    I found a 79 K30 dually in the paper here for $1500 OBO. Somebody's unfinished project. Guy says it has 465/205 and he swapped in a 305. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    He says all new cab corners, rockers, doors, and front clip. Needs a windshield, seat, and a bed. He says its ready for paint. I'd buy it for the D60 but I don't have the room or the cash this close to x-mas. I'm going to look at it this afternoon anyway.

    did they have the d60 in '79? I can't remember what the cutoff for the 44/60 swap was, but i'm thinking it was somewhere in the 70's... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I just went and looked at the truck. Worth $1500 to somebody looking for a tow rig, but I don't have the room.
    Too much work to put the truck together and sell to recoup the cost. At this point the D60 isn't worth $1500 to me.

    It had 305 /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif/465/205 D60/D70 with 4.10 I think. He didn't know for sure and I didn't feel like pulling the cover cause I really wasn't gonna buy the truck. Truck is in pieces and doesn't run, no fuel pump. Has perfect fenders and hood. Cab has no glass but new cab corners and floorsand lights on the roof.
    Has a nice set of shiny Eagle wheel simulators.I guess that is what you call them thingys.

    Laketex, Did they make DRW D44s?

    If anybody needs any of this stuff let me know and maybe we can work something out.

    I think '77 was the first year for the 60 Front in GM's. A friend bought a '77 K30 from a local plumber (For $450 /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) and it has the 60/14 combo. 292 6yl/400/203 also.
