Hello Everyone!~ 1957 CHEVY TRUCK HERE!!

Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum...

I'm Paul and I'm a 21 yr old college guy who grew up around classics and muscle cars... I've had tons of different 80's muscle cars... DAD has a 1965 Chevy Impala SS 409, MOM has a built 2007 Monte Carlo SS with the V8 in it.

My CURRENT PROJECT is a 1957 Chevy Pickup-

Its a 1 ton, Long Bed, "BIG" back window truck... It does run and drive!!! HOWEVER....

I'd like to put it on a newer, more updated frame... Also, I need to update the wiring as well... Any feedback or suggestions let me know. I heard S10 frames can work... But I need a 123" wheel base... any advice would be greatly appreciated. !!

Thanks
