I believe that one was for advertising purposes. You'll note the absence of transfer case and drivelines. Only a rolling chassis and the name and phone number of the wrecking yard.
BTW, just my opinion, others may and will vary.

i gotta say looking at that pic though even if it is just an advertisement thing if the wagon wheelbase is close to a brat wheelbase then that avalanche frame will be way to long. basically im wanting rid of my sooby engine and wanting a diesel in it so i can convert that to SVO like my benz, and the sooby diesel motor seems to be not much more than a myth
I am totally with you on the wanting a diesel. I love the subes, but a diesel would be worth it. I have thought of making a fuel still and going that route.

to bad i dont really understand the internals of engines a whole lot, it would be nice to just convert a sooby ea82 over to run on diesel but i dont think it could handle the larger compression ratio of 21:1 like my benz has(not that i would even have a clue as to how to do that)!!lol

well as some of you have probably i got most everything in the running gear part of my sooby up for sale, i am doing a full frame swap on it just still undecided on what to go with, i dont want something that looks like that goofy looking brat even if that 1 is just for show. im also undecided if i want to go 2 wd or 4wd, i know just like 2 weeks ago somebody had a 2wd 95 dakota with the v6 and 5spd in it that was a rollover so the body was crap but it still drove great and they sold it for $200 so i missed that 1, but im looking for opinions on what vehicles (frames ) might be an easier bit of work to get the wagon body to lay flat, btw i have an 85 gl wagon, i mainly looking around the idea of a v6 or v8 motor, but also not wanting to spend a fortune on just getting the vehicle just for the frame either so obviously dont want a rare hard to find type of vehicle for this, so does anybody know of anything with at least a somewhat simular wheelbase??? and if i go with a 4wd it doesnt matter if the wheels stick out since theres no legality issues on that here
