What vehicle to look for to use for swap parts?

If I were to look around for a vehicle that I could buy for dirt cheap that would offer excellent swap parts, like axles, motor, ???, what would be some good choices?

I know a few people that are selling late 70, early 80 model Ford and Chevy trucks.

I forgot I posted this.... I haven't figured it all out yet, but when the time comes to swap axles and such, I was just curious what vehicles are common to swap parts from? For example, I know my Uncle has a 70 model Chevy truck that I could probably pick up for a couple hundred dollars. It's running a 350 in it right now sitting on 32 or 33's. There's a couple other vehicles like this in the family that are just sitting off to the side somewhere not doing anything.

well if its 3x3 just take the whole power/drive train out and replace yours with it. if you use the axles and keep the 231 youll need to clock it or just use a psd tcase
