flatback74: My question: it seems the general consensus from this thread is that its easier by far to keep these trucks on their frames or swap to suburban frame 73-87 because of the hump. Is this correct?

flatback74: Im asking here because I see a lot of different answers on the web... Im looking for something to drive with, not a show vehicle, and I can weld, but do not want lots of work or a mega project

patrick: Hi I'm a new member. I've owned my 60 for 15 years now. Bought it from "back yard body shop" I've kept her running, now it's time to strip her down and do her justice. How do I know if I have an Apache?

Apache: No problem crabman. The answer is yes. I'm selling my '54 c10 and looking for a '63. I'm not looking to do another build so I'm really looking for a daily driver with a decent body. Kinda like a good woman. LOL
