75 chevy?

My buddy found a 75 shortbox with a new 350 engine. It is a 4 speed and has the full time 4x4 transfer case. The asking price is $3000. He said the body was straight and has a small amount of rust. Is this a good price? Should he get the full time 4wd? What is the difference between 4 low and 4 low lock? Thanks.

Re: 75 chevy?

The full-time transfer (NP203) is a very strong unit, and not very often found behind a 4-speed. (only used them around '74). The 203 acts like a differential, providing power to either the front or rear (like a rearend provides to left or right). Low Loc causes the case to turn both driveshafts at the same time. I wouldn't let the fact that it has the NP203 keep me from buying it. I would be more concerned with rust/dents/oil consumption, etc.

SM465 is pretty bomb proof.

<font color=green>Yeah, they used the 465 in trucks all the way up to like 2.5 ton cab &amp; chassis, it's pretty burly stuff.

Re: 75 chevy?

You can also buy a conversion for the t-case I think, to make it like a semi-normal one.

Yes, you can buy a part-time conversion kit from Mile Marker (at least I'm like 95% sure it's from Mile Marker)[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
