Any thoughts on a 1955 Chevy 2 door frame? It was a convertible, but has had the center "X" removed, so it will need some bracing, but it is a roller with a bad rearend (hole in housing) and still has front suspension & steering.

My internet research shows wheelbase is short 1" at 115", and track width is about an 1" wider in front (57 21/32" on the 1941 vs 58 16/32" on the 1955) and both are right on at 60" for the rear.

I am thinking this may be my best bet yet, short of finding someone that has an actual 1941 frame.

What do you guys think...worth the effort?

Its free, just have to go get it.
