    I am going to strip the 62 down to bare frame. It still has the straight 6 in it but it is tore down to just a block holding the trany up. The 77 is a complete truck and i was thinking that if the frame was the same i could cut out the rivets on the twin I beam and front sup and mark the hole on the 62 and bolt back in. I just dont know how close the frame dimentions are on both trucks or if it would be worth the bother. Im mainly in the idea mode until i get the body work done. No rust just a few dings and dents.

    It can be done but is major surgery as the front frame profiles are not the same. What do you want to do with the truck?

    This entails dash, firewall, floor and frame work.

    Thanks! My first question is can i take everything from under the the hood of a 1977 f150 including the twin Ibeam and put it under the 1962 without any major reconfiguring? The 77 has a 351m in it and i would need the heaver front end and power steering.
