Post 47 Plymouth Super Deluxe chassis swap

Can anyone help me out with a project that I've been working on? I recently bought a 47 Plymouth. I would like to get a newer 60's to 80's Frame under her so I could get a somewhat modern drive train. (V8) If anyone has any ideas I could use the help! I believe it has a 118" wheel base.

Thanks!

Mark,

nice ride!

<------

i'm working on a '47 also. i just bought a '88 dakota to use the frame. the truck i bought is regular cab/long box and the frame is about 5" too long - but it's better than being too short.

if you want to replace the whole frame then you will need to find something like a dakota or s10. i would try to find something newer because if you did find something from the 60's then you'd probably still have to do a brake conversion on the front. or you can subframe the front with a volare or camaro clip.

p.m. me if you have any questions.

JB

JB,
Thanks that sounds like a place to start. Curretnly I have a 302 Ford engine and tranny installed but its just too tight, and right against the steering box. Sounds like the Dakota frame may be a good way to go.

I'll take all the advise I can get
