Hello I am the creator of the pancaked s-10 shown in the pic up top, the massive chop and section was necessary to get the proportions right. As far as putting a drop axle in it and building a new frame is defeating the purpose if I wanted to build a period correct rod I would have used period correct body. Also I wanted to ad that the radiator was going to be mounted in the back of the cab so I didn't have to use a grill that belongs on a thirties car . I sold the truck and it got rebuilt in a different way.

I knew a guy in salinas Cal that did 2 of the graft kits, the first was the 50 ford fiberglass parts on a 90's T bird,, the other project was glass parts on an s10 cab to look like a 39 stude truck The truck project had panels that fit over the doors and rear of the cab to copy the shape of a chopped top. He was running full fenders on his. I googled s 10 39 studebaker and it's kreative rodwerks in arizona.

It is cool!!!! And it don't take nuts to cut one, Bring one to me, and see how fast I will cut it !!!! I like what he did,But I would have built a new frame for it,With a dropped axle.I think it would look nice that way.I have been playing with that idea alot.And will do one, one day...

Thats neat looking, But I think they went to far on the chop top!
That looks really painful to sit in.

When you look at the shape of the S-10 body, as compared to the early trucks/cars, there is considerable difference. The earlier vehicles were narrower in the front than in the rear. That allowed the radiator to appear to follow the body shape, without the fenders attached. The frames were also narrower in the front, in a similar manor. There was also very little stuff in the engine compartment that cluttered things up. Since the S-10 frame is so wide, to accomodate the suspension, it would likely look out of place sticking out in the open.
Although you could obviously make the vehicle operable, the job of making it look like something interesting would be alot of work.
