55 chevy pick up

i now have a 55 chevy pick up frame in my shop. so far it is subframed in the front something from a 70's camaro, with a new gear box and rebuilt front end. the owners have installed a 98 camaro ls1 and 4 l60 e. looks like it was done right if it is in the right spot. they have asked for something better in the rear. i am thinking about a 4 link with air all the way around. after you have done one of these swaps it is about as straight forward as just rebuilding the stock stuff. the cab is in… Continue

Thats Cool We made ours just for the H3ll Of it. People kept hitting it when it was parked so we decided that we would make it into a truck because my dad wanted to teach me about cars anyway. So Three years later it is close to being done. It could of been done much sooner but i spent half a summer making a custom tailgate out of steel tubing. we had it powder coated and it came out really nice.

Wow, that sounds like quite a project! That's gonna be one sick ride! Too bad two 59's had to die to save the 3rd one. I'm sure they were beyond hope though if that was the case. Thanks, my son and I enjoyed every hour in the garage working on that impala. We love the car and it's a blast to cruise in. Good luck with your companies 59!!!!
