Hi I bought a 1969 4x4 c10???? My question is the glove box vin number matches to a 1972 c10 truck and the title is for a 1969 c10. From what I've been reading if its a 4x4 it should be a k20 is that right? Is there any way to fix this problem. This started out as a Dad/son but ending up to be a dad project. I'm in over my head with project one rusty area leading to another. But I'll start with the vin any suggestions out there I guess ideally if I can find a wreck 69 4 x 4 with a good title and glove box I would fix it

Lightbulb Re: Help

You have posted this in the little traveled Suburban section where few attempt cab swaps. You will have better luck in the pickup section. Here are a couple of threads that may help you.

And use the search box above for yet more information without having to wait for a reply. Remember to click the 67-72 button.

And welcome aboard. And expect everyone ask for pictures of your new pride and joy. (Hint!)
Thanks to Bob and Jeanie and everyone else at Superior Performance for all their great help.

Re: Help

If it is a pickup I can move this to the pickup forum for you.

Re: Help

10=6 lug
20/30=8 lug
69-72 had the tall hood.
69-70 had park lights in the grill.
71-72 had park lights in the bumper.

Pretty much anything may have been changed over the years.
Some vehicles have been said to be 4x4 but slipped out w/ C trim on the fender...
The VIN in the door jamb should tell the truck year. If it doesn't match the title, you have a problem.
