Frontclip for a 37 Chevy 1/2 Pickup

Hello everybody,

I bought a 1937 Chevy Pickup and now I want to restore it completely.
I also have a 1969 C10 frame.
Now my question is:
What kind of front-clip can I use without any kind of problems (Camaro, Nova, etc). I want to have IFS and a min 4 inch lowering of the frame. Or is it possible to use the C10 frame (I think the track-width is to wide).

Please support me in the small V8 hating Germany.

Joerg

To get IFS ... a lot of rodders buy a IFS conversion ... and most are Mustang II based ... The 69 IFS from the C10 would be too wide IMHO ...

again WELCOME ...

Thanks for the welcome greetings.

A Mustang II IFS is very expensive and especially the shipment to Germany. So I need an other solution.
Is it possible to shorten the front axle of the C-10?

Welcome ! You said without any problems,I agree that the Mustang II would be the least problems.Anything is possible,just depends on how deep your pocketbook is.I have seen this year truck mounted an a Chevrolet s10 frame also,are you going to be able to do the work ? Or are you going to have a shop perform it,maybe a shop would have some ideas,keep us posted,again welcome to the board,Johnny

Hi again,

what about a jag IFS. Here in Germany you can buy a jag IFS nearly every 2 weeks on ebay.
Please do not answer me: call Heidt´s, they always use the jag-tech.
I need a picture of a jag IFS installation, to see how it looks and to evaluate the feasibility.

Thanks a lot!!!

Joerg
