S-10 swap

I am working on on of these myself..the objective for me was to have all the parts to come in one pile..S-10 has a chev ten bolt and the tranny is a good one..you will get lots of things like the steering column and a complete brake system..All the little stuff that costs bucks if you have to get it all piecemeal..

To be clear my project is different as I am using a 4wd as a donor and putting it under a jeep..using as much of the S-19 as is possible..

And there is a decent aftermarket if you need lowered spindles or something..

It may be possible to graft the entire steering column brackets, clutch pedal and brake assy into the firewall of your car..certainly worth a try to see if that would work..


If in your case if the chassis is a bit narrow that can be made up as now you will be able to change the backset of the wheels and fit some wide tires which is not all that bad of a deal..

New body mounts will need to be fabricated and if you do need to alter the wheel base a bit the frame can be cut and rewelded..box it at the sectioned area..Might need to do some rework to the body to get it to set down to where you want it..

May even use the seat if you need one..I gave the seat out of mine to a friend for his coupe..it will need to have the upholstery removed and we will cut and section the seat frame to fit his car..Make it a bit narrower..since the seat needs to be redone anyway this should work out just fine..

Lots of good stuff comes in an S-10 provided that it comes close to being the right size in the first place for your car..
