Default OT---Looking for project truck

I'm looking for an interesting project truck to tow my Cafe Racer with. I'll probably only use it for short distances, and what I really want is a white Chevy 3500 Extended Cab Dually Diesel, but I'm open to suggestions.

Anyone out there know of any junkers in need of a new home?

I'll travel a reasonable distance for the right deal, so lemme know.

86 1-ton standard cab it's not too bad , does have a new sbc and t-400 tranny and new michelins about the right yr for your new boat.... It is Nasty Habits' but you can just give me the $$$ for it

it just sits here he'll never miss it

dan,

yeah...i'm a bit partial to chebby...the boat was named Heartbeat when I bought it and I'm a bit superstitious, so I put the name on the back and removed it from the sides---it looks much better!

If you don't mind though, maybe you can let me know what they want for the f-350...

neb...you kiddin about nasty's chevy...although I don't really think a sbc will be enought ot tow my 10,000lb boat...?

He said it is no ordinary sbc and then started spittingout a bunch of #s , He said he can pull the motor if you want as it was never intended to be in that truck anyhow , it is a solid truck though. You will need a bbc for that boat
