I love it. Are you keeping it green?
By the way, there might be a few guys on the 67-72 chevy truck forum that'd give you good money for that bed.

Ya know that's a great question. We've tossed around a few ideas, and the only colors we've ruled out is black and red. My 79 is going to have a fresh coat of red on it soon and I don't really want them to match. Green, yellow, and orange have been discussed though.

Well, I picked up a donor for some parts and a frame maybe....

its actually a 77, though its got a 79 grille. I haven't done much investigating yet.

But i got it for 1000. The interior is in surprisingly good shape too.

The red truck is in rough rough shape body wise. It would take a lot more work than i need to take on.

Got the bed on the crew temporarily. I'm about to tear my 79 apart. Paint and some freshening up and it'll be done. then major work on the crew will begin.

This is the 79. My dad gave it to me when i turned 16. I love this truck, and i'd drive it across the country tomorrow (if i could afford to).

I'll start a new thread for it in a day or 2, but im getting the seat redone tomorrow. Taking the bed off and having it blasted this week, all that good stuff.

That looks like a very good project. I look forward to seeing more about your progress.
By the way I have a 4 door parts truck with a fair shortbed on it if you need it for the other project. Your red parts truck looks very good too.

Bump

So the 4wd frame is done. Small issue that we didn't plan on: the bed and cab don't sit level. We accounted for 2 inches of difference that we accommodated with lift blocks but it actually looks like we ended up with 4 inches of difference. I'll post some pictures tomorrow and see what y'all think.

We built the frame from a f250 front and super cab f150 rear, that was also the donor of the bed. Thought we calculated correctly, but oh well. Y'all know how it goes. Looking forward to share progress with y'all tomorrow though!

Picked up a relatively inexpensive 429, got a trans and transfer case. It's starting to come together!
