Aftermarket IFS vs S10 chassis?
Starting on my '50 Willys Overland 2WD Wagon. Started on body (rough/rusted), snagged a '96 Buick Roadmaster and have the LT1/4L60 ready to go. Question is what to do about suspension. I want a more modern (read IFS) suspension for ride and handling. Should I reinforce the stock frame (afterall, it was designed for a flat head 4 with maybe 70 hp), install an aftermarket Mustang II style front end (Speedway Motors?) and source a good modern rear axle (Ford 8.8?) or would it be better (cheaper) to just go with a early 90's S10 chassis I can get for little of nothing (get whole roller pickup for $400, maybe end up with $200 in the chassis after selling body)?
