1940 Chevy 1/2 ton Pickup Kit

i just purchased this 1940 Chevy 1/2 ton P/U hot rod "kit" as a "basket case". Actually more of a garage case as it is spread out all over a friend's garage. 1st step is to move the kit parts to my garage and inventory, but for interest it looks to be a pretty complete body less rear fenders, a tired 305 small block driving a Saginaw 4-speed and Camaro 10 bolt rear end. One interesting touch is the AMC Pacer double wishbone front end that is grafted in place. I'll be needing the rear fenders and the grill is missing.

Welcome to the site jwallen. Those Pacer front suspensions were used on a lot of Chevy pickups in the late 70' and early 80's. Fit well and rode and drove nice. As for the parts you need place a free wanted ad in the Classifieds (link at the top of the page) on this site. Good luck with your "kit" pickup.
