Are you planning on building a V8 bug? If so, any year S-10 chassis will work. Your best bet is to go with a regular cab short bed S-10 chassis. But really, any S-10 will work, you just have to cut the frame so the wheelbase is 94.5" for a beetle or 95.25" for a super beetle, which is what I have. I used a 94 S-10 extended cab frame. It's all I could find, but it'll work.

I know another guy that's building a V8 bug with a S-10 chassis, and I believe his was an extended cab as well, but it was an earlier model. He welded his frame together a little different than mine.

Go here and you could him about his as well. and look for user name hellraiser.

I hope this helped!
