    Came with everything you see here. Straight frame, 2 Wheels & tires, 2WD steering box, whole 2wd front suspension, Cab (converted to 81+ cowl), rear doors + 1 extra rear door, Front buckets & console, rear bench seat, 2x 20 gallon fuel tanks. Most if not all of the once minor rust has been repaired.

    Edit: The plan is to do a body-swap onto my K10's frame.

    Let the fun begin :D:hack::grind::weld::grind::truck: ----> [​IMG]

    Sweet, you are gonna build it I would assume. Good starting point. You gonna leave it 2wd or convert it? Wish a $75 rig was in that shape around here. For that kindof money around here you bring a broom and dustpan and have to sweap the rig up and bring it home.

    I'm actually going to do a body swap onto my K10's frame/powertrain/drivetrain and chop the bed short.

    We desparately need more cab space for the dog, passengers, etc.

    Building your idea of what an Avalanche would have looked like had it been built during the 73-87 era? Pretty cool I think. Like others have said, you practically stole it for $75! Nice find!

    I see many parts on that thing that are worth the $75 all by themselves, and I mean each one. Good catch!

    nice score.. i found a 89 crew cab complete... 4x4 cab with hydro master cylinder..... when I say complete.. you could drop it on and go.... $300 but im not going to buy it till next summer....

    get some pics that is gonna look cool... I am going to put the crew cab on my frame... myself, wife and son fit in the truck now.. but addition of a new baby makes needs for more room... and buying a sub or a already 4 door is no fun:haha:

    That's right... built not bought :D

    The reson I'm swapping bodies onto my K10 and not building up the crew cab is that I want to keep my short wheel base without having to do a complete from-the-frame-up rebuild. I don't want/need a trail truck with 14' of wheelbase, but I sure would like to have 4 passengers, or not have my dog having to sit on top of my shifter

    Good luck with your project ... I know I'll need it with mine :)
