Post Custom suspension 53 Chev P.U.

I would like information on stubbing front end from a chev Camaro or Chev Nova on a 53 Chev Pickup. What years match up the best? This is my first attempt at this so any information is appreciated.

Cool

Both the Camaro and Nova sub frames require a lot of fabrication and the results depend on the installer. If done wrong the result will be a vehicle that dog tracks down the road, that just requires an 1/8 or less per side. (.125")You might consider a Mustang II setup that bolts into existing holes or a weld in unit. Check advertisers in classic truck magazines and look in the forums in this web site.

Can be done, very easy, but time consuming. Ask Willy`s 33 about this as he has done many, more than i have.
