Default 1948 Chevy Truck - frame build up

well, yet another AD Truck coming through the shop. this one is a real deal 48. lots of neat differences on the older trucks. the complete truck is about rust free, however we will be focusing on the frame build only, for now. the goal is to build a very clean frame using a mustang II front end and 4-link rear on air bags.

keep your eyes on this one for updates. parts have been ordered and expected to arrive next week, in the mean time i striped the frame and its scheduled to get blasted on Monday. till then...

stock frame:


body removed and in transit for storage:


frame stripped and all unnecessary brackets removed:


awaiting sandblasting:

looking good Salty!

yesterday we picked up the frame from the sandblaster, it came out great. very minimal pitting. coincidentally that afternoon i received 6 boxes from California! needless to say i could not resist starting the work on the frame, so we gave it a light self etching primer coat to protect it from the many finger prints and Florida humidity. later that night we boxed in the front of the frame installed the cross-member and top hats. going to finish welding a few things today on it and notch the frame for the rack and pinion.

there were 5 AD trucks present at my shop last night, in all different stages from my daily, to a bone stocker, the finished GMC, the s-10 subframed one and this bare frame.

Default Re: 1948 Chevy Truck - frame build up

thanks guys! i want to keep the momentum going on this project, being that the goal is a finished frame then we can take a break and worry about he body.


so last night the focus was on getting the rear end under the frame and still having the frame flat out. so my pal started off by triming the leaf brackets off the rear end and i worked on notching the frame so the rear end fits under it with tires and all.



this frame is going to be smoothed out and nice looking so we are smoothing out some welds before body working the frame...







running boards still flat on the floor

completed the triangulated 4-link last week but forgot to post pics of it. also got the metal to fully box the frame and ordered sbc mounts and trans mount along with frame power brake system. i am hoping that soon the fabrication work will be done on this frame...

Hey Yaril, you do great work. I am now totally hooked on AD trucks. I am wondering about your opinion on power steering versus manual steering on these trucks. I see you are doing this one with power steering while your Ozzy truck was manual. I have a pair of super clean rust free AD's; a 1950 3 window 1 Ton and a 1953 5 window 1 Ton. I am planning to do the 1950 with a Mustang II IFS and I am wondering if I should go manual or power on the rack. How did your manual rack work out? thanks

honestly, there is nothing like power steering. even with r/p as an upgrade to the old box it will still require a bit of work with out the assist of the pump. id say add it, most MII kits offer a power rack for no extra charge, then you need the pump, braket and hoses. i think its worth it.

owner stayed longer in Cali than anticipated. he stuck around for Pamona, so he is driving back today. bringing me a 61 Caddy for a customer of mine that wants it chopped. im sure the frame will make its way to my shop soon after he arrives.

Hi Tyler great work on your chassis.
I was wondering if you would be able to measure the original rear end axle face to axle face and tell me the width.I am going to start my 34 truck and am hoping I can use 49 -53 front and rear axles.
Thanks in advance Joe Mac
