Do you just need the length and width, or everything in between? I've got a bare 54' frame in my backyard I can take some measurements from if that will help.

Thanks.. But I need the whole lay-out of the measurements.. And I know the body's changed in 54 not sure how much the frames changed.. I have a new frame to build for a 51 Chevy truck.. I'm planning on using a Art Morrison front end,,With four bar on the rear..I may have to make my own measurements...Thanks again..

If you are going to use the frame stub you might just want to purchase the whole frame. If you do not already have one, it will be much easier that way. I have done the clip with a camaro, nova and an s10 frame. None are easy, but I had the frames for the clip job already.

The difference between the 53 and 54 frames are behind the cab for the newer style bed.

I did about 8 or 9 clip jobs just last year..
I will not be putting a clip on this one..I will be building a whole new frame from scratch.. Brand new.. ( hand made..)
