Talked to my inspection guy. He said here in PA he and his dad had to do the same thing with a 1950 gmc truck. Bought a new frame for it and since the title was in his name he got a VIN assigned to it and registered it that way. He said not to even dick w the stock stuff unless I want to use it. I'm gonna call another guy I know with a 34 in the morning. I hope I don't need it...Hotrodderhaag seems like a good dude. Like to see him b able to make something out of the frame.
