The company I work for recently had a chevy C4500 cargo van get into a bad accident. It had about 9K miles on it. Bent the frame and all front sheetmetal. It will be totaled out. What is the chassis worth with the good 6.0 motor and trans? Tom
Chevy HiPo magazine has an article in the current issue about a 5.3 truck engine with 4L60E swap into a '72 Nova. They said the cost of the engine, trans, computer, and harness was only $1300 (sounds quite low). BUT they used an LS conversion kit from Turn Key Engine Supply which cost $2500 that included engine mounts, different cast alum oil pan, harness, and other things not mentioned. They also listed Sanderson headers at $300, Lokar throttle cable at $50, and an Alumitech radiator at $500. There were other things they didn't price like external fuel pump, GM fuel filter, trans cooler lines, etc.
Got the chassis bought! Has a 2009 6.0L LQ9 and 4l85E trans. Comes to me as a complete chassis for 1500.00 . Motor and trans are perfect! If I understand correct, the heads should be the L92 version? Tom
