Found my donor vehicle!

I finally went and looked at the truck that I've been meaning to go look at for 3 weeks now. It is a 78 Chevy 1/2 ton with dana 44's front and rear, 350 engine, sm465 tranny, and np208 tcase. The body is in real good shape so hopefully I can sell it and get some of my money back. I hit the switch and it fired right up for me. I am giving $500 for it. Now I just have to find another transfer case. Anybody have a dana 300 or a np205 laying around that they could let go for cheap?? Andy

Chevy didn't use the dana 44 in the rear.

It would be a 12 bolt in the rear then right? The case isn't round, so I'm guessing it has to be a 12 bolt. Andy

What does it have for a transfer case in it now? I thought that the mid 70's with 465s had NP205 attached to them? Does it have a 208 in it now. If you don't want that then you could probably sell it on a full size board. The 208 is a nice swap for the 229.

Olin, I thought they all came with the 205's too, but when we looked at it yesterday it has a 208 in it. Do you have any idea how much would it be worth when I sell it? Thanks, Andy

That is a link to a full size forum. They have a great for sale/trade sight.
I would say that if it is in good shape you could get between 100 and 200 for a 208.
