1972 Chevrolet 1/2-Ton
I have been in contact with a suprising number of people that have wanted to
do something like this themselves. I hope to also do another stretch within
the next couple of years if time and finances permit it, a 4 door would be fun
I own a '72 1/2 ton that I spent last summer stretching to make an extra-cab pickup that seats 6. It was quite the challenging project but very rewarding. It even has a third door on the passenger side (suicide style) for better access This was also my first experience at major bodywork. Cab and frame are lengthened 27-3/4 inches, third door on passenger side opens suicide style (both doors shut together),& oak door panels and headliner. All work except driveline, passenger windows, and arc welding of the frame(never learned hot to stick weld) was done by me.
Less than $3000 was spent to do this. I would be happy to answer any questions by e-mail.
