1955 Chevy Truck

Hello,
My name is Mike and i live in Battle Creek, Mi. I just bought a 1955 Chevy 3100 2nd. series truck. I have been researching IFS conversions for my truck and i have decided to go with a 2wd 89 Suburban front section frame and graft it onto my existing frame. I have a built 350 ready to go in my truck as soon as i graft the frame. The motor in the truck right now is a 283 with power pack heads or 327 corvette heads. There is a 4 speed manual on the floor, I believe it is a Saginaw. I am willing to sell the motor and tranny for a reasonable price. If anyone has any websites for patch panels i would greatly appreciate it. The truck needs cab corners, cab steps and lower fender patches. please if anyone had any input on the suburban front frame let me know..... thanks for your time, Mike

Welcome to the forums Mike.
Check out this thread. There is alot of info on the 55 to 59 trucks.
55 to 59 chevy truck owners
If you post your questions in the appropriate forums you'll get plenty of help.
Their are a few sites that sell patch panels, Brothers Trucks and Tuckers are a couple.
Good luck with your build.
Kim
