Willy\'s Truck.... need a drive train...any help!!!

I have a willys truck that I am looking for a chevy 1ton or 3/4ton drive train for. I have decided if I can find a good frame and running gear I will put my body on that.

Looking for:
workable frame
engine would be a plus but will probably swap in a crate 383
sm465
np205
preferably 1tons axles

My willys frame is aready set-up for a chevy 350 and the truck was brought from California, just surface rust. I could re-use my frame if the chevy frame was trash.

If anyone runs across something like this or knows of one within a couple of hundred miles of central Indiana, I'd be grateful if you would drop me a line.

I'm not looking for a nice driver because I don't want to let go of that kind of $$$.

I'd recomend looking for a Chevy Suburban frame to put that Willys body on. It should be a closer match in size.

If you tell him Andy referred you, does he hang up on you or just raise his prices? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/neener.gif[/img]
