Wanted, mostly scrap GMC frame

If convenient I wouldn't mind having the front half of a 48-53 (or 54?) GMC frame to help me figure out and modify the transmisison crossmember to suit my needs.

1 ton would be ideal but I think 3/4 through 2 ton uses same transmission corssmember, fits in the frame same way. Not sure about 1/2 ton.

All I need is from front engine crossmember to transmisison crossmember, though wouldn't hurt to also have crossmember behind cab.

Needs to be from a GMC because of the front engine mount.

Thanks,
Grigg

How about a 51 3/4 ton Chevy?
The whole truck delivered to your shop in May, after we get the engine started at the Homecoming. Clean title in my name.

I'll get more pictures of the mounts later today.
Price will be discussed privately.

Thanks but no thanks, really needs to be a GMC because the front crossmember is different from a Chevy.

Also hope to turn up half or whole frame less the rest of the truck.

Grigg,

I have the chassis from the GMC Sleeper Cab project that John had...don't remember the size...2-ton??? You're welcome to any or all of the frame members you want, unless you already took them off!

Thanks Mike, I think that truck being a 450 series has a much different frame and cross members, particularly the rear engine mount. I'll look at the pictures I have of that truck tomorrow. Do know we saved and reused a U shaped channel iron crossmember from just behind the engine which is why I'm pretty sure not same as a pickup.

Really just looking for enough of a 1 ton or comparable frame to fit an engine in and mockup and fabricate a different rear engine crossmember. Be a lot easier to do that with a short section of naked frame than one with a cab on it.
