Go on eBay and search chassis roller, there is a guy that builds them for around 200-250, you won't need a unit with casters unless you want to move it while restoring it.

I have several rollers a few (3-4) of the cheaper ones and one with casters which I only use whike blasting and priming, if you want a top of the range roller I can only recommend CJ autos NBN chassis roller, I have the heavy duty model with casters and brace bars for both splitscreen's and Baywindow's which allows me to pick up and spin a fully complete bus (also handy when rebuilding a bus) but it costs around 1500.
