    I need a rolling chassis for a 73-79 GMC/Chevy 1/2 ton SWB 4X4 near San Jose, CA. I would like to spend around $500. Is this possible?

    My frame is messed & I was wondering if it would be cheaper to get a replacement than fixing it. The estimate for straightening it wasn't pretty.

    Thanks
    Mike

    I called that guy. It's a pretty good deal, but it's a LWB. If anyone is looking for the parts to do a 3/4 ton conversion, this would be a good place to look.

    I have a dang near perfect '85 SWB bare frame that I got from a salvage yard in Missouri. I have a photo copy of the title for it, too. I paid just over $500 for the bare frame and will sell it for $400.

    Thanks Tweetysuarus, I decided to go with the 3/4 ton. After I piece the two trucks together, I should have some spare parts to sell or give away.
