i usually recommend using the stock frame, if you can find one buy it, any 55 (2nd series) to 59 will fit.
they are easy to modify and everything fits.
there was another guy looking for a frame from so cal, i googled it and found 5 frames all under 200.
also look at buying a basket case or parts truck, since you will need a lot of parts to finish yours.
since you don't have a frame some guys use the infamous s10 frames.

check out the 55-59 chevy truck thread in this forum
