i had my late 40's on a s10 frame . . . it was already on the frame, looked like factory s10 cabmounts just relocated. front frame horns have to be cut off. mine was a standardcab frame too, it wasnt cut and rewelded. i believe the xcab you have to shorten.

Re: early 50s chevy pickup on s10 frame

Why use just the frame? I used the floor, firewall, and all systems including HVAC, ABS, power steering, EFI, gauges, and what have you from a 98 S10. Its a 62 and not a 50s, but still a full size body on an S10 frame, same idea.



I channeled it at the same time. For those that remember how close the wheels come to the S10 brake booster and heater box, I welded the cab up in the forward position, cut off the body mounts and slid the body back 4.5 inches to center the wheel in the wheelwell. With 2.5 inch spacers on the front, the wheels arent any where near the booster or blower. That may change with the 22s but I am not scared.

Re: early 50s chevy pickup on s10 frame

i do agree. they bring alot more when you sell too.
my body looked like it came out of a junkyard but the drivetrain was done right, when it was all said and done i had maybe $3500 in the truck and it sold for $7500

It's '39 Studebaker, not Willys, and yes, we are aware of it. It actually uses the S10 cab.



Vehicles may be subject to change......

2003 S10, 2.2 auto- the daily driver, currently with a 2"/2" drop and some minor engine bolt-ons BLOWN UP, looking for a motor (PM me)
