Re: Swapping a 69 Chevy body onto a 97 Cummins chassis

i've got a lot of time on my hands out here and have been looking around for a very particular bed idea. it's like a welder bed except completely flat like a flat bed, maintains the bottom of the rear fenders to cover up the frame and maintain body lines, and chop the tail gate to have it still be functional and have some storage. best i can do is a drawing for now, i'm gonna give it a shot when i get home around april time frame. oh, and i think i'm going to go with avitation gauges and build a custom dash/gauge cluster. i want functional and i've never really liked the way the bottom four gauges are kinda hard to see and that the cluster is flat. plan on angling the panel at a 30 degree angle, works for our helicopter, should work here....

Re: Swapping a 69 Chevy body onto a 97 Cummings chassis

That looks VERY COOL!! One think I would do for the gauges that would (in my opinion) make it look better, would be to stagger the gauges, they look too boxy and structured to me.

Re: Swapping a 69 Chevy body onto a 97 Cummings chassis

back from over seas and the quad cab build has begun!! the burb tear down was hindered by the rain but we got the front clip off, interior stripped, and body mount bolts removed. not bad for only working three hours on it. body is in ok shape. rockers, both inner and outer, and a bit of the floor needs replaced but thats what i expected.

Re: Swapping a 69 Chevy body onto a 97 Cummings chassis

Got some parts brought to me from my dad; an extra cab, doors, inner fenders and a wood flatbed. Worked on seperating the outer roof skin from the inner in order to splice into the burb roof. Spot welds suck!

Re: Swapping a 69 Chevy body onto a 97 Cummings chassis

I'm curious why you don't go ahead and do a crew cab while you're at it. I guess it's the length of the frame you're trying to match but i think it would be worth the extra effort. Either way it will still be cool. Nice progress!

Re: Swapping a 69 Chevy body onto a 97 Cummings chassis

I actually am making a crew cab as we speak! That's what the extra cabs and roofs are for. Got the burb and all, just gotta find the money and time now...
