You're getting mighty close to sliding that S-10 chassis under your masterpiece. There's those chassis under lots of cars and trucks. I hope it works out for you.

Thanks bob.
Surprisingly there is not a lot of info out there on using the entire S 10 chassis for a car frame swap. Mostly just using the front clip.
I found one guy that put the S 10 chassis under a 49 Chevrolet car but he didnít give out much info. Only that he had to modify the floor under the back seat.
Now trucks in the other hand.......😳
Once I get to that point I will document it all so that the info will be out there for others.
Spending today trying to get rid of the scrap. Lots of interest. No shows so far.🙀

I have to relocate the body for more front clearance so while I have it hanging.....
This is a bit lower then the photoshop pic that Rik Hoving did on the CCC site.
Based on the rear wheel opening lip to wheel cover.
With the rocker level the roof height if 54-3/4 Inches.
Not sure that I can get it this low in real life so we will see.
Keep on keeping on,
That for stopping by.......

I like it. How much ground clearance will you have?

The way it sits right now I have 7 inches of clearance to the bottom of the rocker panel, kenny.
I donít think I will be able to get it that low as a static drop.
And after all the floor work I did I really donít want to channel it.
From eyeballing the fender lip positioning against the wheel cover Iíd say itís about 2 inches lower then in the picture.
