I know a guy who had a S10 clip widened 3 inches for his '49 Ford, and you know what? You can't even tell that its been clipped. Now I have a major question to this and that is has anyone else heard of this being done? Hell, I never had. The guy told me that the reason why it was widened was to get it to the width of the old metric Malibu and Regal. He said that it is exactly three inches wider than the S10 with the same suspension parts and is the same width as the original Ford clip. When I asked him how he fixed his center link to work with the widened S10 clip, he told me that he used the center link from the metric Malibu. Now I personally think this is a cool, and I believe that the results are well worth it based on what I have seen. My big concern, and I guess my only concern, is has anybody else done it this way?
