Just wondering, will the body, (cab,box, rad support) Swap onto, as a complete bolt on, to a 73-79 truck frame? Have a 1978 F150 2wd shorty and really want an older bumpside truck instead. Put lots into the frame and would like to keep it if I could. Thanks for any help

I actually did this with my '65 and I don't really like the way it turned out because of that extra 4". The cab is A-OK, but the rear tires are way to close to the front of the wheelwell now and it looks funny. I don't think I have any completed pics but you can check out some of the swap process at http://mybrewery.shutterfly.com or just search some of my older posts. I thought it'd be nice gaining the power steering, boosted disc brakes and 9" rear, which it is, but I wish I had a flat bed to put on it now.
