    It has a 69 grill, so I would guess 69.The 70 grill has the gridwork of the grill broken up into sections.

    tow trucks cost a ton to insure... Dad had a sweet late 70s Chevy tow truck for a while, but it just cost to much to insure the darn thing.

    Thats a nice looking truck, though I'd bet it has some good fender rub issues.

    All the 1 ton's prior to 1977 were C models. That thing is probably an old body on a 77-91 K-30 frame or someone converted it to 4 wheel drive.

    If you don't mind do a 360 of the rig and look for any SERIOUS rust.

    The rest I will get from the owner.

    Thanks for doing this.

    I really appreciate it.

    Damn I think I got you on this one. Notice that it has the dully rear. The kind with the narrow rear frame rails for the narrowed dually read end. There for it was converted or swapped to a K-30 frame:wink1: :D

    But.......

    Any K30 axles, front and rear, will bolt right under the '67-'72 years WITHOUT relocating the spring perches. Only have to relocated the shock perches.

    This is why I say a simple axle swap happened here.
