I know these posts are a bit old but I'm super impressed with the work your doing. I have a 69 521 i plan on building. I want to do a KA swap, is the 521 like the 510 where you have to flip or change out the crossmember? Just a novice question. Thanks in advance

The 510 and 521 are totally different, the 510 front suspension is struts, while the 521 has torsion bars.

The cross member that holds the transmission mount bracket is permanent, the bracket is modified when going from one type of transmission to another.

Welp, dude is picking up this truck in the morning, i am hoping he hits me with a lowball offer, tho we already agreed on a price, so i can act mad, kick him out, shoot up in the air and keep it a little longer.

 

 

In other words i hope this truck falls into the right hands like the orange one did
