foxrods said:Yes the car Im Building is on a 80's s-10 chassis sort of, Tremendous amounts of work have been put into my chassis to make it work , and alot of fiberglass work also ans still many things to work out. but to just think you can plop this body on a truck chassis. WRONG. I do have some pictures and can go into a bit of detail if needed, but believe me you need alot of imagination. I chose this chassis because i wanted a good riding car all around and i also put a small block chevy with a 8-71 blower on it.

This has been bashed around here many times - if you don't have a frame, or don't want to buy an aftermarket OEM style like a TCI or other mfr, make one out of 2x3x.125(or thereabouts) rectangular tubing. These S10 frames are clunks under something like a '37 Ford, especially something like an Oze plus everything has to either be rebuilt or bastardized to fit, including the entire drive line. The spring rates are wrong, the wheel tread is too wide, the rear end...........and it goes on and on often to disaster(go to a big swap meet sometime to see them) - especially if you are a newbie
