Default Sub framing in Central Cal

Is there Hamber in the Central Valley (Fresno/Visalia) that can do sub framing? I just picked up a Nova today and I'm looking at putting it under one of me AD trucks..........

Check with Steve Esau in Kingsburg. He should be able to help you. I used a TCI Mustang 11 cross member in my 48 5 window.

Steve is one of the best out of Kingsburg, Tim Gowett just started his own shop in Woodlake Ca. He done several Mustage II's and 4 link rear suspensions with air-bags. (Gowett Speed & Custom 559-936-9253). Another now local guy who just opened up in Visalia is Highway 99 Hot Rods (see donshotrodpage.com).

what year nova? 75'-79' will limit your wheel choice as track width is really to wide for AD trucks. 78' -84 GM A-body seem better suited.

I was thinking about '68 but just found out about rear steering. So now I don't know what I'm going to do........

As for the S-10, I may still build one since I have the frame but I think I want to try a subframe to see if I like it.
