On the frame slide thing. If you look closely at the frame it appears that the front subframe connects to the side rails in the area even with the front of the transmission pan in the lead photo in the story. it might be possible to cut those welds and slip the frame a few inches to correct wheel base length.
I did much the same thing at the back of a 75 Monte Carlo frame that I put under a 51 Merc.
yeah i think it looks like it is right after the trans mount. hmm.. now i really have to rethink what i'm going to use on my morris... maybe a bac halfed s10 would be cheaper and better than getting a morrison or fatman chassis made. well better for street use anyway... but i didn't know that the monte did the same thing...
