Hi I have a 1978 Chevy K10.  I looked for 14 months and finally found one rusted out for $1,100 in new jersey. The truck had not been on the road for 11 years. I drove it 95 miles home.  I brought rockers, cab corners, hood fenders, and an ac compresser from lmc.  I went through the engine and rebuilt the transmission.  All together, invested $5,200.  Truck has antique tags, open tires, straight pipes, no inspection.  I could not have restored the truck without lmc parts.
