In a word, NO. Just search out a Dodge frame. Heck, they are practically free being all the sheep want Fords. Get the Dodge frame and then sell the Ford and you will be money ahead.

I agree. The Ford frame is most likely too large and Ford frames of that vintage aren't the strongest in the world either.

Try to search out a Dodge frame but if you can't find one I suggest checking into the possibly of using a Dakota, S-10, or Ranger frame. Personally I would choose the Dakota if the wheel base is close enough just to keep it all Mopar.

Good luck.

re 36 dodge

I have e well equipt shop and can chop up the frame to make it fit then box it, or build one for it from 2X4 tubing. I have a bunch of stuff left over from other builds so I was going to build a nice rat type rod out of it, highboy style with zoomies and a duece grille. Dodge frames are not falling out the sky not around here anyway.

Heres an idea, put the body on the frame and see if it is close enough for you!.

Nice find Primerat. I've never used E-bay. How was the body shipped to you? Is it a hassle or do you recommend it?

36 Dodge

Thanks for the offer I am interested in the Ram. As for as E-Bay I only been burned once by a guy who calls himself RODPARTSDEALER stay away from this guy.
I went and picked up the body it was about a 5 hour drive each way.

Hi primerat
I was sereous when i said you can have it, as long as you cover the postage,
you will have to find out how and price involved and let me know.
I'm also bussy with a 36 dodge pickup (check it out ) after I choped the roof
and changed the grill I decided it will not look right with what I got in mind.
I then got hold of a skull with the flames (harley/s) it fit the cowly as if it was
made for it, I was also looking around for taillights, and got myself two harley
tumestone taillights , which also have about the same curve as the back fender.
And yes I know about all the scumbacks, but I said you can have it for Free.
Have fun.
