    geesh! what a butcher! I wonder what happened to the rest of the truck? I notice he's also selling a good running 289 out of his Hawk so he can put a V6 in it[)]Pretty much sounds like going bass akwards to me[)]

        Reminds me of that poor Avanti years ago that someone in L.A. put the
        whole front subframe from a Chrysler "K-car" into. Front wheel drive,
        and a 4 cylinder engine. Was hyped as being "Classic styling with a
        modern engine". If it hadnt been butchered so bad, I would have got
        it and put that Chrysler 4 banger to good use - as a boat anchor.

            At least he has a sense of humor.
            Could be a sweet deal for someone needing a rust free floor that can't afford a rust free cab. He at least offered it up with good pic's. He could have tossed it, and then no one might benefit from it.
            Possibly someone was making an extended cab Ccab and used just the roof section. The fact that we can't see what he actually built does not automatically lump him in the butcher class....

                Jeff, in this case "chop top gone bad" pretty much sums up what happened to the cab. I can't say he butchered it, he might have just made one wrong cut.

                        What's the issue with the floors location ? Shipping might be $100 or so and you'd spend a grand to fix that rusted cab.
