So I bought a decent, fairly complete '78 40 to scavenge a few things for my '79 and then part the rest.

The Engine/Tranny/Tcase are sold, but everything else remains.

I start a new job on Thurs. and I'm not sure if I want to use my spare time to post up everything, deal with shipping, etc...

Anyone want to take it on? I think there's probably an easy $2000 worth of parts left. Probably more like $3000 I want a few things, but not a lot.

The tub is shot, but the hard top is in good shape, frame is too. I've got the axles for sale, but this would include them as well, and if they sell, we'll adjust the price accordingly. There is a set of fenders from a older model included. The 78 fenders are no good.

The truck is about 2/3rds disassembled. It is still rolling/steering with hardtop on, and the dash needs to be disassembled.

Anyone want to tackle this for $1200? If not, the part out will begin in a week or so. Please no requests for parts at this time though, unless you want the axles:)

I am interested. My main question is how is the frame? Any deep rust?

Hey Justin, will one of those bumpers for the 40 work with a stock PTO? If so, maybe we can work out a partial trade or something...
