Your 444 looks just like the 58 I bought off a lot in San Bernardino, CA in the late 60s for $150. Drove it for a year or so. Cool car. I have also had a fantasy about making a rod out of one. I'll be watching.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I have drawn the frame and suspension in AutoCad.
The attached pic has all the layers (frame, body, engine, suspension) all turned on so it looks like a busy mess.
When zoomed in I have all the pieces of the puzzle drawn to scale and it makes fabrication have a lot less guess work.

I luv making something out of nothing - most people would have scrapped the car.
I bought a nice running 1993 S10 with the 2.8l V6 and 5 speed manual.
I am using the engine, trans, driveshaft (have to be shortened), rear axle, steering column, pedal assembly, brake booster but a new master cylinder, wiring harness with ECM for the throttle body injection.
I will not be using the S10 frame but instead will build a 2" x 3"x 11ga steel tube frame.
Mustang II front suspension with tubular control arms and coilovers, out back will be a parallel 4 bar with coilovers.

The 2.8l is 125HP which will move a little better than the 60 hp 4 cylinder I pulled out of the Volvo.

Is it all Helix stuff? If so, beware! Helix is a Hoffman company well known for its low quality, cheap knock-off junk...
