Default 1970 1100D SWB 4x4 pickup

Into the rabbit hole I go!:d stumbled across this a couple weeks ago and just made the deal on it last night. Got the LST back on it last week and with pics and conversations with the owner I felt comfortable spending the $350 on it. My buddy is pickin'er up this weekend and hauling it back down to chico for me from redding, CA. Pretty excited to get this one going along side the 67 t'all!

specs:
sv 304 (obviously missing)
t-18 manual 4 spd
np-202
d-44 front, 3.73s, tie rod protector (still on!)
d-44 rear, 3.73s w/ powerlock
hd springs f/r
increased cooling radiator
hand throttle control
deluxe interior trim pkg
exterior trim pkg
std 2 tone wht roof/ blue body paint
6 1/2' bed, 115" wheelbase

minimal rust, really only some surface cleanup, no rot. Body panels are straight as an arrow and he said the doors shut just like it rolled off the showroom floor. He's got the hood, which is also straight & rust free, just removed and is white. Some idiot put a sunroof in it so I'll end up cutting a patch panel out of my donor t'all and fixing that! not that big a deal... He actually bought this rig awhile back as a bed donor for a 74 IH crewcab his Dad has that they use for hunting. His Dad ended up finding an identical rig to their 74 so they bought it for the entire body, crewcab and bed, and this one just sat intact in his yard.

Plan:
I've got the 69 1200d t'all that's going to make this all happen. Once the complete 3/4 ton drivetrain from the donor gets swapped into "grizz", "pepe" will get taken back to stock with the great running 304 coming outta the 67 t'all. Also looking to swap the p/s, p/b from the 1200d onto the pickup to make it a little more driving friendly. Some cleanup, spray in bedliner and a coat of paint taking it back to the factory codes and it should dress up real nice. I've got the 33x9.50x15 ats in great shape that went on grizz this last trip that will end up on this rig due to grizz getting the 8 lug 3/4t axles & wheels. I figure w/ the 3.73s and 33" tires it should do everything I'll need it to do offroad or in the fields and still do pretty good on the highway/ mpg for longer trips to go buy more IH stuff! if I think the 3.73s are to hi (doubt it) then I've got the 4.09 geared 1/2t axle set from grizz I can swap right in. Be a great little ranch truck/ home depot runner when we move back home. The Travelall is the #1 priority on the list as I'll need that to haul my plethora of kids around but, I've come to the realization that I don't want to be without a pickup! This will become my everyday work/ runaround truck when I don't have a bunch of kids or early broncos to haul...

this was all my crazy logic in justifying the purchase of another IH. Best part is, it's 2600 miles away so I can hold off on telling my wife until her next visit out to the ranch in oct...

p.s. I have officially banned myself from craigslist!...

To be perfectly honest, that look is really what sold me on it. That plus the swb & 4x4 I just couldn't let it go. I'll have a 2nd grill to match that's in perfect shape off the 69 1200 t'all to boot.

Alright guys, just how big of a project do you think this is to fix? Just got some new pics of some suspicions I had on the front windshield frame/ cowl area this morn. Just proves one man's "rust free" is anothers "holy crap"! Might explain the wet floorboards in the other pics he sent that he could not explain. I've got a 1200d t'all to rob from but not real sure on the condition the cowl/ windshield frame is in on it as I didn't buy it for the body and have not gotten eyes on it yet. What do you think? Currently in re-negotiations...

Thanks,
fungus

Did you buy it?
That looks like a good deal to me, for $350
the body looks great, for the most part.
I have the same truck, except it's a '71, 304-4 speed, and it has way more rust plus dented panels. Still thinking about saving it though.

Nope, I passed on it. The problem with the rust in the windsheild frame was more work than I wanted to get into. I planned on just dropping in an engine and running it without all the "project" part of tackling major rust issues. It actually has a sunroof in the cab and I'm sure it's leaking in around that and flowing down the windsheild pillars, into the cowl and ultimately onto the floor in the cab. I'm sure there's alot more rot in that cab than the pics show.

Need to focus on getting my '67 t'all to daily driver status and that alone is hard enough being over 2000 miles away from it without having 2 full blown projects...
