Need help on deciding

I am going tomorrow after school to look at two trucks. One is a white and yellow two tone 72 Chevy pick up with a 350 and a automatic. The other is a orange Chevy dually i think its a 74, it has a built up 454 in it and a automatic. I don't know what they want for the 72 but im pretty sure they wanted 4,500 for the 74 dually. Any help on which truck would be best or which truck has most parts availability would be appreciated. Thanks

buy the 74, remove the engine, throw the rest away and you should have a sweet sweet ride.

Buy the truck and put the engine in my Nova? Is that what you mean? I would except the Nova doesn't have much of a frame so a built up 454 will give a lot of torque and will twist the body. The frame stops under the doors and then starts again somewhere in back so there's not much of a frame like would be on a Chevelle or Malibu. Plus i need a truck for the winter cause my car don't go to good in the snow. Thanks for the suggestion though

What is so funny Kevin? He told me to buy the truck for 4,500 just for the engine? The body is in good shape except for the back bumper is bent but nothing major like rust. The same with the 72 nothing wrong with it as i could see. So i will probably look in to getting on of them as soon as possible.
