This is a '58 Chevy pickup that I am building for my dad. He has owned the truck since 1965 and it was our family daily driver for years. It will be powered by a 1958 348 with three Autolite two barrel carbs. The chassis is being assembled while my dad finishes painting the body. Here are some pics: The front of the frame was boxed above the axle because of an up coming C-notch and the motor mount tabs were welded in: The front axle was flipped on top of the leafs: The steering box is out of a mid 70's Chevy pickup with a home made mounting plate: I had to re-locate the shock behind the axle to clear the steering box: The tranny crossmember is a narrowed '64 Chevelle piece: Here is the frame with a small block mounted. The mounting positions for the small block and the 348 that is going in it are exactly the same, as I moved nothing to drop the 348 in the chassis: The gas tank is a 20 gallon stainless tank from Rick's Hot Rods. You have to move the rear cross member all the way back to make it fit: Since I didn't want a brake booster and M/C cluttering up the bottom of the truck, I mounted the complete brake booster/ M/C, mounting bracket, pedal and brake light switch to the firewall of the '58. This swap is really easy and fits like a glove: The chassis was blasted and painted with black catalyzed urethane. We decided that we did not want a "clipped" truck, or a Must II front end and simply upgraded the front axle with power steering and disc brakes. The front axle was flipped to the top of the leaf springs to lower the truck 4 1/4". A 9/16" thick plate was welded to the bottom of the axle to accept the U-bolts. A "C" notch was needed in the front frame rails for axle travel. The inside of the frame was boxed for the "C" notch. The rear end is a 57" wide 9" smoothie with big housing ends and brakes. I narrowed it down from 62" and installed a set of Dutchman axles. The gear ratio is 3.25. The rear end was flipped on top of the leafs to lower the rear down. The back was also "C" notched and boxed. The left side of the frame was notched for clearance for a 12" linear actuator that raises an oak tonneau cover that allows some storage inside the bed.
