    add one dually pickup bed, add one 89-91 Burb front grille, subtract some wheelbase and you'd be in business.

    They ran that body for just over 20 years. Swapped to the '88-'98 style body in the big trucks in '92, I think. I do believe '73 was also the first year of the square body in the big trucks, too.


    Corrections??

    Here, as long as it's got hydraulic brakes and you're not carrying 26k lbs, you don't need a CDL.

    federal DOT says 10,001+ gvwr is commercial, and requires CDL. dont know if or how they enforce it, but thats what it says.

    well, i had read the federal motor carrier saftey handbook a while back, and it does say 10,001+ gvwr is considered commercial vehicle (section 390.5), but i just checked again, and i guess i missed the part that says, "used on a highway in interstate commerce". :doah:

    i've always wanted to cannabalize one of those for its roof. something about the small back window in a light duty truck. went to Lima in '06 and met up with a friend of a friend who had a C60 cab on his K20, and it looked every bit as sweet as i pictured it.
