Are there any pickup truck body's out there?  Shell only

Hey Bill.....

I think Mini Mania had a fiberglass one they've had for-evar, if they still have it they would make a good deal on it I'd think.

Otherwise, I think any pup you find will already be restored, or need SO much rust repair......

Well Dan, while you weren't looking Krystle licked the door handle like the old VW commercial therefore claiming dibs if it is ever for sale.  ;D
I am the GR8KORNHOLIO! Are you threatening me?

I spotted this Pickup project for sale when I was poking around last week.  Not inexpensive, and in the UK.  But there aren't a lot of them around...

If you can't find a shell, here's a non-project Pickup for sale.

Appears as though I accidentally sold my truck shell.  However, I know this guy Jims5542 down in Florida with an almost running truck he wants to sell.

"accidentally".....Ha!   ;D

So it looks like RaceCR12 has his shell - that was quick!

Deposit being sent and some discussions about this 998 auto lump and subframe that you'll end up building sounds like.  I'm thinking 1098 crank, 266 type cam, head work, and Russell's largest small bore pistons making a 1220cc torque monster.

Where would I get a 1098 crankshaft?

I think minisport and probably spares sell them.

Thanks for the leads! Great input and community feedback

I'll have to unbury it once Mark's done.  There's a couple minor things on the body I need to tweak before sending it out anyways.
