A s-10 chassis is way too wide for a T-bucket. Use the search function on this site to find T-bucket chassis info. Building a T-bucket frame out of rectangular tubing is fairly easy. You can also buy frames for T-buckets...check out Speedway. www.speedwaymotors.com

Dang - an S-10 chassis might be the best thing since granny's apple pie - for an S10 pickup truck. It is not the correct frame for most street rods, regardless of what the ratters say. It's too long, too wide, too deep, too many brackets that have to be removed and so on, and on, and on, and on . There are too many good to great after market frames to choose from and cars like Model A's, T-Buckets, early Chebbies and even '32's with ASC rails or some other supplier. A T bucket or an A can be fabbed in a long weekend with plate stock and some rectangular .125 tubing for about 100 - 150 dollars and a MIG welder.
