Use some punctuation there will ya buddy.... longest sentence I've ever seen. A few capital letters properly placed would make it a lot easier to read as well.... (No I'm not an English teacher, just an old fart that believes if someone wants to communicate using the English language that they should try to do it properly.)

To answer your question: It can be done but not by January. Considering your lack of experience, your best bet would be to find an S-10 that's all rusted out but still running well and just swap the body over. That might get you on the road by January providing you have help and don't run into any unforeseen problems along the way. Worry about swapping the engine and drive train later.

You should be able to find a rusted out S-10 cheap, I just got another one the other day for almost nothing. It is a 2.8 V6 5-speed and talk about rust!

No in fact i have two trucks that is just sitting around. I would like to save time and money and just buy one that is done are almost done.
I looked in the for sale area, I did not see anything that i like. If any one in the NY and NJ area has one that I can drive back to NY drop me a line. If you are in my area and want to work on the trucks that I already have drop me a line also.

huligar,

keep an eye on http://www.stovebolt.com - forums - swap meet - trucks for sale. They cover all pre-1973 chevy.gmc trucks. They even have a panels and burbs section.

http://www.oldchevytruck.com/ <- classifieds for old chevy trucks, another place to check from time to time.


Good luck,

-W
