40 chev pu

I helped the local wrecker crush cars a while back and he gave me a 40 PU and we cut the rear end and took the front suspension out of an 80's elcamino. I haven't tape measured all the parts but if necesarry I can get the spring mounts from speedway or a local trailer parts Co and remove the old brackets and align and weld in the new ones. I plan on using the chevy I beam and doing a disc conversion.
