Default Rare trucks?

So I've been looking around trying to decide what kind of project I want to start on. I found something that really caught my eye and that's a 1971 Dodge pickup.

Are these style trucks hard to find or something because I am having a lot of trouble finding them on kijiji and auto trader

Wow. Thats kinda cool. I don't see them AT ALL around here..... I suspect most cars/trucks of that vintage have long since succumbed to the ravages of rust, and winters....

Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking I found one on kijiji, its pretty beat and it's still 3500 bucks... Maybe I'll have to build on a different chassis

Maybe look for something a bit more recent, but, still in the style you are looking for. (if you have one. )

Yeah that's not a bad Idea. Maybe a 1st gen ram or something just before the first gens

Ah. Yeah, that's gonna make finding something old, in rescuable shape, a bit more fun...... Probably Canda's answer to craigslist is gonna be the hot ticket......

Especially when the old Dodge trucks liked to rust. Did you look on "classic" auto trader? AT is confusing now! It used to be one site where you could look for anything. Now it's all divided up. Wouldn't hurt to look on ebay once in a while. In my opinion the 72-80 trucks where the best looking and you can get just about anything you need as far as rust repair panels go.
