    65-66 cab versus 67 and up

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I have lots to think about now before moving on with that one.

    I hadent thought of cutting the top off. Ill consider that. I hope to get it over to my brothers and up on a lift to do some measuring and see if the frame is tweaked. I cant really cut and weld but i can get help in that area. Thanks for the ideas.

    That's a cool ride. I like the extended cab and is that a unibody? Ive never seen that before.

    Pillar behind driver side was damaged by large mailbox hoop. Twisted the top of the cab a bit. Enough to shatter the back glass and cause a 1/4 or more gap in the door alignment. Lower part at back of the cab was damaged as well.

    The cab was damaged in an accident. A replacement cab for a 65-66 is really what i am after. I see what you mean now on the extra radiator room. Yes, those inner fenders would all have to be removed and swapped.

    What I have is a 66 single headlight 520 and I am looking for a replacement cab. I was told somewhere that the 520 cab from a 65-66 was the only option I would have however I have a 71 521 as well and when I take measurements of its cab it looks like they are the same. I could use a cab from say a 67 -71 just fine maybe. I haven't even looked at engine swaps yet as I hope to keep the j13 that is currently still running and in the 520. Oh, and I am out in Saint Helens, OR

    65-66 cab versus 67 and up

    Ok. Ive searched and searched but i cannot find info on the differences in the 65-66 520 cab versus 67 and up. I know i have seen comments stating that the engine compartment is 3" shorter in the 65-66, but is that because the fenders are longer/shorter or frame length, the firewall sticking out more or the cab altogether is different? I am not sure. I have measured my 66 against my 71 and to me they look swappable. Is this true? Or am i limited to using only a cab from 65-66? Thanks ahead of time for any info on this.

    Disc brake conversion. 66 520

    New member here. Looking for a kit to convert the king pin front drums to disk. I saw an older thread but it seems the links just take me back to the post. Anyone know or have the needed parts list to do this?
