Measure the wheelbase and the track width on both...then take a good look at the rear kick up part on both frames and tell us what you think.

49 chey sendan delivery

I've pretty much have all those details checked out and I will have to do some fabricating but that isn't a issue we me as I have the means and ability to do what is needed. The big reason I've chosen the S/10 is I have one that I used to drive and still have it in the back yard.

And ED. it is a 49 or 50 as there the same. I intend in posting some pic.soon on the progress I've made so far.

Thanks

Old Timer,

I just put a Ford F-1 pick up on an S-10 frame. The rear kick up is 7 inches higher than the center. The front is 3 inches higher than the center. I have a website about the swap with pictures and info that could help.

www.geocities.com/lakota_circle_dancer/

The wheelbases on the Shortbed/Longbed/Extended Cab are 108"/117"/122" . The width of the axles are 55" from wheel mount to wheel mount, or 48" from flange to flange (backing plate to backing plate). If you need a wider rearend look into an S-10 4X4 rearend, it's 4" wider.

Hey thanks Lakota,
The chassis swap is me thinking ahead as the body was rooted out so bad I had to put new floors, rockers, door post and quarters before I can lift it off it's original chassis. Your in put will help as the s/10's I have are still under snow and waiting for spring. I have a two wheel extended cab and a 4x4 blazer so as for the rear end goes and using your info. maybe I'm covered?

Again Thanks
Old Timer

Old Timer,

That's the way it's supposed to look. All our rides started out that way. Mine came in three pieces. Cab was on the old frame, The bed was tied on with old rotted rope, and the nose was in the bed. When my wife first saw it on the back of the tow truck being delivered, she said: "Oh, yeah...It's got potential."
