I just finished a nova clip under a 58 chevy truck,It came out really good,It has the rear steering.And i also c-notched the frame also.Your truck looks very good.The rockers are about 11 inch off the floor with no weight on it.The front tires are to small on this truck,they are 24 inch tall.I told him to go with at less a 26 inch tall tire.Any thing i can do to help you let me know.your truck is coming out nice,Just keep on trucking man!!!!!

Nice.

Years ago I had a 55 Chevy pickup, also several Firebird parts cars, never thought to marry the two.

Put a 455 Pontiac in it to be different.
