Post 1928 chev coupe body installed on S-10

I have a decent '28 chev coupe and would like to put it on a S-10 frame. Looks like it is close to being the same, any advice. thanks Caesar

I have never done this myself, but I have talked to several people who have done this at the car shows and they claim that it is relatively easy to do and the S-10 frame and suspension is the way to go. If you get the S-10 truck cheap, you could build a nice street rod for $10,000 where the average cost is closer to $30,000.

why put a REAL hot rod body on a S10 frame. youll be the Kool guy at the car show who NEVER has a real hot rod because your driving a s10 with a cool topper?
why not use a model a frame or hell even the more popular deuce frame?

Owe and the 30,000 dollar hot rod? come on a kick *** hot rod can be built for under 10,000 any day. if you arent into BILLET WORLD. this is the day of low buck rods. look at the economy who can afford it besides the gold chainers

Just use your stock frame. I've owned my '31 Chev 2dr Sedan since the '60's. I put in a '57 rear end and used the stock front axle. Drove it as a daily driver till the 80's and retired it. What I plan using the stock frame is to put a Heidt IFS, 9" Ford rear, GM crate engine & 700r4 trans. Then cruise my ***** off. BTW your '28 chevy frame is a lot beefer than a Model A ford. Good luck.

Way to go Ceasar!! I too am looking at the S-10 frame for a project car. I have a '62 Chevy II Wagon with a sagging stock front clip and was thinking about mounting the body on the S-10 frame for a start, along with the 350, trans & rearend!!

well i am in the same process with a 1950 Willys Sedan Delivery.It is the most common way to go up here and as said the $$$ The S10 will fit right to the tee for me. The only thing I have to do block the rear and put drop spindles on
