    No. Stay with a modified stock chassis or aftermarket boxed rails and all will be well.
    Doing the other will tag you as a dink.
    Forever.

    Where are guys getting this idea that an S-10 chassis is a good platform for a 30's pickup? My current project (34 Ford PU) was so badly butchered by the previous owner's attempts to mount it on an S-10 frame that it will really never be restorable. To paraphrase Winston Churchill: "A dumb idea travels halfway around the world before a good idea can get its pants on."

    Find an original frame in repairable condition, or buy an aftermarket frame, or build a frame yourself.

    Well I think the signature describes what it will end up like if done.

    If you really want it to look good put it on a 32 chassis. Here is some inspiration
