looking at a 99 ECLB for a build truck is it a good candidate?
as the title says im looking at a 1999 ECLB and its only $3500 which isnt to bad. the bad is it has a destroyed tranny theirs a hole thru the oil pan he said he was doing a 4X4 boosted launches and he let off the brake then a big boom and the truck had to get towed . which doesn't matter cause im would put a fully built tranny in for the build. it is a 52 block so no problems there. here are some pics do you guys think i should get it?
it has a edge comp,50's,4" str8 pipe. no gauges but it needs a frame i brought my BAFH= big a** fuc**** hammer today lightly hit the frame and it went right thru. so theirs a frame in lafayette NJ for $550 mint just powdered coated 3 weeks ago so i might pick it up for a spare just in case i dont get the 99. so should i jump the gun or what?
good candidate for a puller-possibly
good candidate for a street/strip truck-it's a stretch
good candidate for a lot of headaches-definitely
Chances are if the frame is that bad that a lot of other components are in the same shape ex. brake lines, etc. What may seem like an attractive deal now could end up being quite an expensive project later. It's possible that you could part it out and come out ahead though.
