whacking the frame is easy...then you'll double the initial investment trying to find a shortbed bed
Put a tool box on it and call it a shorter bed. If a little solid, runing they will bring 2 to 3000, If v-8 it will be a 4 bolt main most likly.
Meh, just whack that too.
$900 I would jump on it. I need a longbed lol.
At $900, it seems like it's worth a shot, fixing it up and selling it. If you misjudge the market, it doesn't seem like you could really lose too much.
That generation of truck is very hot. I thought, like some have said in this thread, the LWB is a deal killer. However, last month visiting the Good Guys car show, there were a bunch of long bed trucks all dressed up. It may have even been a 50/50 ration with SWB. If the truck is solid i'd jump on it.
Around here, the long wheel base is not a killer at all. The stepside bed is the killer. It doesn't matter if it is short box or long box. The fleetside trucks are the premium trucks. The stepside trucks are the losers no matter if short box or long box.
In 1970s terminology, Fleetside=Impala SS. Stepside=4 door Biscayne.
I've got an 72 LWB Highlanger edition. Orange/White with orange/white houndstooth interior.
Only pic I have online:
I would think $900 for any 72 model truck in driver quality condition would be a buy.
Heck, I won't restore mine because I still use it to haul crap from time to time!
Good site here, and this is the link to the 67-72 Classifieds for comparison:
For $900 I'd be all over a 72 Chevy PU.
Fix the rust, weatherstripping and the other crap you mentioned.
A 350 or a BB would be better in that truck.
A LS and OD trans would do it too.
Yes the short beds are cuter,, but not that much cuter.
You can use the truck for 10 years and double your money out of it.
