    Does anybody know what the wheel base is on the old c10. a buddy of mine
    has come across a '63 c10 and was asking me if he could put the bed & cab on a 77k5 frame. It looks like it would work to me. How much choppin' we talkin' here?

    Short bed or long bed?

    After a short internet search, I found 115" for a short bed and 127" for a long bed.

    Being that a k5 is 106.5, it'd be close if it's a SWB.

    Hey thanks Ryan22re, I tried looking it up couldnt get anywhere. 115"? I thought the short bed was around 110" so we would need to another 8.5" of frame, new driveshaft, and alot more fabbin' than I would care to get into. thanks.
