    Now go easy on me. It has a 47 stude cab chopped 5.5 inches( my very first chop job ) the bed is a ford I lengthend it 4 inches as well as added 4 inches to the width. Im using a back half out of a s-10 and a 68 camro 10 bolt with 273 gears. I built the front half of the frame from 2x3 box tubing. It has a 37 ford front axle with a quarter eillptic spring degsin I came up with. I am using a 68 chevelle gear box turned on its side for side steer. Stock bottm end smallblock chevy with a mild cam and a 2x2 carb setup on a older style quadrajet intake. I am running a powerglide trans built by my dad from YATES RACING AND SPEED SHOP. Using a s-10 seat that I had cut to fit. The wheels are stock s-10 space savers that are 16x4s. Running 7.50s out back and 6.50 up front for tires. The head lights are unknown I just throught they looked cool. Using a 47 m stude grill turned upside down and a 52 stude radiator. Like I said this has been my first ground up build and I dont have access to alot of the tooling that it reqires to do this kind of work I did all of this by my self and in my own garage with a 110 welder and had tooling.

    Theres a huge amount of talent tied up in that first build! Congrats for taking a pile of parts & an old cab & building a real hot rod out of it. Looks cool.
