    How about a 3/4 ton chevy with a diesel title?
    Would that work?
    I have one here (kidjethro's truck), and I have the truck only, no engine, no tranny/tcase no axles, and no bed.
    The cab is complete and clean, no rust or damage, some peeling of paint on the hood.
    Oh and the springs are there too but I am guessing you don't want the springs either?
    Make me an offer, I am sure it will be something I can't refuse.

    I'm checking into how much hassle it might be. Getting caught with a gas engine in a diesel trucks is Whammo fines. But maybe I can get a diesel engine. THANKS for the offer, bug me if you don't hear from me.


    You know what just ocurred to me. That's the truck he was gonna put a 454 in huh? I brought the 6.2 out of it down here for my bro when he bought it. HAHA!

    He did have a 454 in it, and then traded me the truck fo the Ford PROBE he's driving now.
    I sold the 454, and was planning on putting a diesel back in it (that I already have) but I need the money more than I need another truck poject.
    (have about 13 now):o
    I will bug you again unless I find a buyer for it.
    But you are probably the best fit for this since you do need the cab and frame, all the others just need the vin and title.
    :confused:

    I'll give you the truck, a diesel engine sitting in the cross member, with a turbo (banks) and all the parts for it, you need to assemble and add tranny and tcase of choice, and axles.
    Total $1500.
    If you want to keep the 3/4 ton axles it's sitting on, add $300.
    I also have some trannies and tcases, but the truck is setup for manual, and I don't have a complete setup for that, only a sm465 32 spline.
    I do have th400/208, and I have the column, and pedals for an auto, if you prefer auto.
    You can put together a truck with parts fom me, but I thought you had unning gear you wanted to transplant in this thing.
    :D

    All I would need is the truck and the engine. I have trannies, cases, axles. Too many. :doah: Ican't decide if I'd like a manual or auto. I've had both. Sticks are more fun, but a stick diesel is crap in the dunes.

    I'l ponder it.

    Meantime, do you know if a '69 or '70 truck cab will fit a later model (like my K5) frame without much trouble?

    Thanks a lot. - David

    I will ask Jason, he did that I believe, he put a 70 cab on his 78 blazer frame.

    So no more diesel truck?
    You can have the truck without the Turbo and engine for $400, it's complete with all the interior and glass, doors, hood.
    Just no bed.
    All you need is the engine tranny tcase and axles.
    Even has the springs and gas tanks.
    :D

    Too much trouble with the DMV, don't want a diesel. MY bro has a CUCV here I could use if I wanted to.
