46 gmc pickup gasser

Hey everyone. I have been lucky enough to receive my grand fathers 1946 gmc pickup. I have finally got enough scratch to get a good start. This will be my first project that involves major frame mods. I am going to do an old school gasser out of this. Was wondering if I would be better off using a extended cab S10 frame which is only 1 inch shorter on wheel base,or box in the original 46 frame. I will be using a 406 or 427 sbc around 500 Hp 450 ft lbs. M21 4 speed, 9 inch rearend ,ladderbar setup, if I can get the power to the ground this should be a blast to run. Anyway any opinion will be listened to Thanks, Brett

If you want it to be an old gasser then use the original chassis. Box and gusset it where you think it needs it, install a straight front axel so the nose is up in the air and enjoy.
