Re: 1st K series

unless someone needs the parts, or you are up for a real challenge, and please do not throw stones, but that is what I would have built a true 1970's rat rod out of. Really nice looking hood and fender, cab looks in fair shape, find one without a title and "build" a runner. Just my delusional thoughts at midnight.

Re: 1st K series

the metal munching worms are pretty full,

just depends on your sheet metal skills, I'm not good with metal, i'd probably walked away from that myself,

but anything is possible

Lol. For what I paid...and its 3 miles from me. I figured the hood would be a cool wall hanger...or, the cowl and hood a good rat rod starter set or, if I find a nice cab with no title, I do a "cab swap" lol

Re: 1st K series

You could use that to add to another cab and make an extended cab or four door.

Re: 1st K series

So the title has the engine # as the VIN... Ugh. The cab only had this tiny tag.... Is this the VIN?
