    Hi. I am thinking about doing a body swap on a 73 C-10. I want to use a 57 body kit from usbody dot com. I am wondering if anyone knows about the wheel bases on these trucks and if it would work.

    I can look up the 57' wheelbases if you tell me what the two trucks are. The 73 C/10, is it a short bed or long bed? The 73 wheelbases are on my site.

    The 57 kit, is it a short bed or long bed? Stepside?

    Hey there Chuck. The 73 is a long bed. the kit from us body is a short wheel base step side. It sounds like I may have answered my own question here. Is there anything I can do to make it fit?
