1934 Olds sedan chassis

I'm just starting to work on my '34 Olds 4-door sedan and am kinda lost as to whether or not I should keep the car on the original frame and do a MII IFS or Camaro clip OR abandon the frame and swap it for a S-10 frame. Wheelbase of the car is 114" and S-10 that is close is 117.9" and would need shortening to match the car. Anyone have some experience at having done both these options on their builds that could give me opinions? I'd appreciate the help as I dont want to head down the wrong road. Also $$$ is an issue as I'm trying to keep the cost of the build reasonable.


"Reasonable" - within suitable limits and guidlines as mandated by the all-mighty "wife-godess".

Thanks for the input.

Can anybody provide me on wheelbase specs on G-body cars? I got a tip that this type of chassis may be more suitable for my frame swap than a S-10/ S-15 truck chassis.

I'm looking for something close to 114".

Thanks in advance

I would recomend using the original frame and adding a ifs and a modern rear as it was made to fit the body and extensive modifications would be needed to install it on a s10 or any other chassis,tonight at a cruisein I seen a 47 chevy coupe on a 74 impala frame and it looked horrible underneath it as you could tell that frame did not belong there and the motor was too low in the engine compartment.
