Smile 1950 F-1

Me and my dad started another project. We were getting wore out on the other one because of slow progress. We are still working on it. Anyway a little over a year ago i bought another 50 ford cab and front clip. And then 6 months ago i bought a s10 with the intention of a frame swap somewhere down the line. Well about 6 weeks ago we picked the s10 up. and decided to go for it. We striped alot of weight off of it, Then did some burnouts then took the rest apart. The s-10 was a rusty extended cab 2wd with a 2.8l v6 with 180K on the clock. Now for the pics.

We shortened the frame 8 inches. the factory seams between the front and back were grinded then pulled apart. Then put the back into the front section after cutting the 8 inches out and tacked and measured.
