Default Back kit's for Chevy luv's?

I picked me a 72 luv truck yesterday. And this thing is untouched. What I am looking for is a back half kit for this truck. That is if they even make such a thing. if so does any one know of a company that might sell them?

I used a chassis engineering stage 2 kit for mine and just moved the stock frame rails in to make room.

Just say NO to backhalf kits!!! Stock rails and radials are the best!!!

On a serious note...we need more pics!!!

If you notch the frame you can fit a 29.5/10.5 easily, move the leaf springs in and run after market coilovers. alot cheaper than a back half kit and you will be able to class race it . Its the new trend stock suspension and radials

Well for starter's this truck is a "VIRGIN" truck in every since of the word. I bought it from the origanaly owner and it is very clean for 72 luv. Now I bought this truck for my 15 yr old son. We are going to make it his first street/strip truck more street than strip. But he is pretty adimit about the Pro street look though. Another thing, me and him both don't care for the Fleet Side bed. SO if there is any one out there with a Step side bed that fit's a luv and would like a Fleet side let me know. So ere is a couple pic's of the truck.

Well me and my Son have been talking and decided to test the water's. So here's the deal, we would like to try and trade this truck. And what we are looking for is: 62-65 Nova coupe or wgaon, 77-80 Malibu, 72-75 Pro streeted Luv truck. Your trade must be street legal and you must have the title to your ride. Not interested in stright up drag car's, well it all depend's what ya got.

That's what I should have done instead of building mine from scratch.
