I picked this up at a good price. The frame is in good shape. Fair
amount of body work. Overall ..nice. Engine is in tact.
Truck has not moved since 1979. Original dawn blue under front emblem.
Original wheels to get blasted.
Where is a good source of parts?
thanks

A nice find.

1. All parts from the side doors forward are same as truck. So parts available at many vendors and a reasonable amount of donor parts.
2. The radio is not original and was mounted in dash.
3. No patch panels available for body rear of side doors.
4. If you got the original bomber bucket seats, they are very valuable.
5. Donor fenders are hard to find and two year only. But all pickups 1/2T and up will work.

I restored about a dozen of those Panels and Suburbans 55.2-59 over the last 20 or so years. There are a few tricks for repairing the rear quarters. Lotta work.

Hey thanks. The radio appears not to have the right spacing to fit in the dash.
I took it out ,probably will sell it.
The seats I just took out today. I`m not sure, they could be.
I hope to take years to fix this one up. I`ll probably lean in here
when I get stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I need to get the wheels blasted and painted so I can move it around.
The engine then will be rebuilt.
How hard is it to get the chassis off the frame on these?

The chassis is the frame. You mean body off the frame. It's about 10 bolts. I only removed one of the bodies because I was converting to 4x4 using the original frame. There is no other reason to remove the body. They are big and heavy. It's not like removing a cab, So be sure of why you want to remove body.

Post pics of seats. The other extremely rare item is the gas tank.

Neither are original for a panel. Both are a newer era item.
