Not So Good News!!!

Well, I went and picked up the truck yesterday and brought it home. First I had to stop off at the local Canadian Tire store and have the brake line fixed to get home safely. While there they told me the frame was rotten.
Not being so trustworthy of Canadian Tire's garage, I had it checked at another garage today. They told me the frame is cracked and showed me. They said it can be fixed but the guy figured it was more work then he figured I wanted to get in too. At least he was kind enough, not to even charge me for a safety check.
Anyway, the truck still has lots of good part(s) on it, so I am parting it out. The buyer's package from MTO does show they were the original owners. The truck has a 302 in it with 105,000kms on it. I've posted it on Kijijii. If anyone knows of someone interested in a good parts truck, let me know.

Yeah, I don't think it would be too bad for a farmer to use in the field.

Where is it cracked or rotten? On my 91 I bought it as a right off I cut the frame under the cab and replace it and had it plated welded and bolted and I drove it for 10 years with no problem had it align and was perfect. Old frames are cheap

I believe the crack is just in front of the driver's side rear wheel. It was Monday when I had it at the garage and trying to recall when it was on the hoist. I was just so disappointed that I didn't care any more.
Thanks for the suggestions everyone. How much do you figure an old frame costs?
I could check into the frame for the 84 and if it would work, not sure though. I guess the body style is similar, just more rounded out, so it may work.
I am just not sure how much work I want to put into it. I don't have a garage or anything to park it in and work on it either, plus I don't know much about welding, although my brother-in-law is a welder. I guess it's all something to think about if I don't get any decent offers for it.
I figure the motor, tranny and cap should all be worth something on it.

Thanks again everyone. Nice to know we have such a good group of truck people on here.
