Well, I just had a truck rolled into my shop (like I have the extra room with 3 cars already in there) but it is the most noble cause that I can think of. It belongs to the father of a friend that I drag race, and turn wrenches with. It was his grandfathers truck, and they have never let it out of their owner ship, though it was just parked on the ranch property Texas, as a reminder. Well, the time has come to return all of the help that his dad has given along the way (some late night breakdowns, including a broken driveshaft come to mind) So here is what I ask of you... what direction do I go on this, as I am basically being given liberty on this? Basic Details: It was a farm/ranch truck, but it is a 57 chevy long bed. He wants it to be something very nice, that is reliable, and looks good. also to shorten the bed. so do I go the easy route, and nova subframe it, do all of the body work, and put a 9 inch under it with a 4 link, and stuff a 350/350 combo in it, and just a nice clean paint job.... or go a little more wild, such as LS1 power, air ride, and bright metallic paint. Neither is going to be the exact thing that he remembers, and I am at a loss... Help me out on this one, as I usually do drag cars, and my old man is along the lines of the more custom the better! Never done a project with this much meaning to another person, especially since he doesn't know that we took the truck, and his wife told him that she had it hauled off!!
