You can appreciate the ďbeefĒ of the GMC/Chevy 3500HD trucks, a stripped rolling 3500HD chassis weighs more than a running C1500!

When posting on this site you won't have to explain what the 3500HD Beast is! ie 19.5 wheels, straight axle, 10 bolt wheels, 15000lbs GVW, 4 Wheel Disc Brakes etc

Without those frame braces on that long chassis I could see it bending.  Another thing to remember just because it's in Texas doesn't mean it's a Texan....could be a patched up transplanted NY rust bucket ;D.

Could be!  Or the cab mount bushings might just be shot.  However if it doesn't have the frame stiffeners it just may be bent.  My 1993 was and it had lived its life with a utility bed, welding rig, etc. and was a maintenance truck for a garbage hauling company.  She was hurt!

There have been a few old HD type trucks at decent prices around here.  The upside is they have very little rust thanks to the climate.  I've been really tempted but just have no room or time!

I see that posture up north when the rear cab mounts rot out, the chassis perch is normally OK but the body mount collapses.

That would make a good resto...but the price is up there even for NY. I like it.

Really cool old truck, owner seems a little confused as I seriously doubt it has power steering. :)  Priced high for what it is but looks solid overall, claims to run and drive.  Title missing.

Bad transmission...and didn't indicate which engine it's gas so 7.4 orig but you never know.  Frame sure looks bent :(  Nick (MrBeast) and I had looked into which models got the frame stiffeners and which didn't; I'm honestly surprised this 1994 model doesn't seem to have them considering it's a long wheelbase model.  My 1994 135.5" did not, my 1993 159.5" did not either.  My 1995 159.5" did.  Nick's 1994 had them but although it was a 135.5" it had been chopped down from a 183.5" if I recall; we ran the VIN on it to find that out since all his rear spring hardware and crossmembers were bolted in, not riveted.

AZtim has put 3.73 in his Cummins swapped HD and seems to be happy with it. His HD also has a NV4500 Which has a nice 1st and 2nd gear. Not sure what you have for a trans but if itís the 4l85e you might want to go to 4.10s instead. The 4l80e and 4l85e(found in the HD) have a high first gear and off the line acceleration is a little unimpressive with the 3.73s I have in my 5200lb 3/4ton with a 350 vortec. Even the 6.0 vortec seems to be held back by the 4l80e. So your heavy HD when towing off the line sporting 3.73s might not be impressive, But I can assure you that highway towing will be nice. But At the end of the day, itís your choice and your truck!
