My truck has been off road for 30years, it’s a 72 Cheyenne so just getting back to it now. Interior parts, seat belts, door panels, I don’t have seats. Took it apart back then and now trying to build it back up. So what do you have? Thanks

Sorry but I don't have much that I would get rid of, my brother and friends are all building trucks so the parts pretty much stay local.

Re: “Castro” my new 72 build

I picked up a set of NOS rockers off the board. I have a set of repops that came with the truck, but these work way better. Old Castro will like these, they fit like a glove but are not cheap when you find them. Worth every penny for the labor you save.

Re: “Castro” my new 72 build

Also picked up a new Big Block fan shroud and fan here off the board, mine were smashed. I wound up not using this fan and used a mid-80’s C-30 5 blade fan for a 454 or diesel and an ECP radiator.

Time to pull the body off, it gave a fight, but I won, front clip off and started gutting the cab for removal.

Re: “Castro” my new 72 build

Cut out the inner rocker, both lower A and B pillars and the rusty section of the kick panel. I like to the cut the inner rockers in half and fit the front and rear separately, I sometimes find the length a little off. Also replaced the cab corner

Re: “Castro” my new 72 build

Consolidated my parts onto the frame so I would have a bit more room to work but the cab will come back off to finish the bottom. It looks cool and at this point I needed a little motivation

Re: “Castro” my new 72 build

3 partial cab braces installed, one was still good. I cut out the floor board for a high hump, went with a repop high hump which works fine. This was to give me a little more room to shim the trans upward to better align the driveshaft. I dressed all the welds underneath and scrubbed, scraped and wire wheeled for hours but finally got the bottom of the cab cleaned up and coated with Ospho. I installed the high hump temporarily, so I could weld the nuts to the floor pan.
