I have a chance at a '79 Chevy 3/4 ton truck for $400. It's rusty but runs and drives great. Since I have no use for a third truck, I'd turn it into a parts truck and just strip it as my junk broke. I have no clue what the drivetrain is yet besides the axles. 14bff rear, D44 front, 4.10 gears. From looking at spec sheets it looks like the parts would go like this: Tranny: TH350 or TH400 Engine: 350 or 454 (I know it's a gasser) T-Case: 203 or 205 (I don't know if they put 205's in 3/4 tons) The parts in it pretty much depend on if the engine turns out to be a small block or big block. I never popped the hood when I had a chance because it wasn't for sale when I drove it. Do you all think it's worth it? If it has the 454/400/205 combo (if that ever even came in a 3/4 ton) I'll definitely buy it, but I'd like to minimize cost by selling parts I don't need. Anyways, what do trucks like this go for in your area and is it worth the initial cost?
