The Camaro I think is to wide. Trucks are kinda wide but the 40 was still kinda narrow. The cab is what is bugging me on that one. The tape measure would have to come out for that one. I would measure up an S-10 also to be safe. The mustang 2 is a good front end if you want to go with something that is pretty easy to install. They do work on street rods. The thing that I have found on the aftermarket front ends is the material is thin they are prone to cracking on heavy car with big engines. I just got a dodge dokota frame I plan to make patterns of the front end and build them. Think about it bigger brakes, drop spindles, rack, tube control arms. Now If I could figure out how to post pictures on this site I will post the rig I'm currenty building a 57 Fairlane with a winston cup car front end with 78 t-bird spindles.
