Blackface cabs are pretty simple, you could try making your own. Don't worry about the finger joints, if you don't have a table saw or router and dovetail jig, you can just put it together with but joints and reinforce it with 1/4" dowels spaced an 1" apart.
I have been looking on eBay and not seen anything price friendly as this time, chassis wise... I am going to need the trem module or have to make one, yes ? I have a 1966-7 Gibbs 17" Hammond reverb tank, and lots of speakers, including a SFD/PRO 12" Oxfart from the 70s.
So when I collect some part if I do not trade this off first, I will sure be seeking help here...
Cab, no problem, I got the goods for that.
Funny part is I had a 74 DR Cab in great shape I got in trade with a speaker in it last year I sold on eBay. I got it basically free or little as pat of the trade. Sold it on eBay for 167.00 pretty fast. Sorta wish I had still it. ;)
One of my revenue producing ideas is to make matching DR cab and Tele [or just body] for my Proto Paisley. See below... So I can make the proto cab now....
