has anyone put a 1951 chevy or same vintage truck on a ford ranger frame
I sure have not. I dont know if its been done.
I don't know what that guy is smoking but I sure don't want none of it! An S-10 chassis would be an ideal choice for that job. Someone take that guy's tools away from him QUICK!
haha, smurf your post cracks me up. Take his tools away!
Hey Lewis K! I'm glad you saw the humor in my post, but many a people have screwed up a good truck with a bad idea because someone didn't take their tools away from them. I've seen it more than once. Just makes me cringe to see that stuff. They get in the middle of the project and realize that they're in trouble, then they have to find someone to try and make chicken salad out of chicken ****. I know from firsthand ezperience, I've saved more than a few projects from the crusher. I guess that's why I build stuff for people, I like a good challenge from time to time.
Yea, I have heard stories of people trying to do things without really thinking it through or knowing how to do it and it turns out horrible.
The bed sides from my 53 shortbed stepside are missing the mounting flanges. Can anyone tell me how high off the bottom flange to mount new pieces? Also, what are the dimensions of the cross bed supports # 2 & 3 (Hoe high from the frame.ThanksPhil
NO,BUT I HAVE PUT A 1951 CHEVY TRUCK ON A 1984 TRUCK FRAME.I MADE 8IN. MOUNTS FOR THE FRONT OF THE CAB.FRONT MOUNT(ENGINE)AND A SIDE MOUNT (ENGINE).CUT 8IN. OFF OF FRONT OF THE FRAME.
I have an original 51 truck with the 216 *** engine. It has begun to miss and backfire basically overnight. Did a complete tune-up--no difference. Rebuilt the carburator---no differnce? Checked the teeth of the distributor--looks good. Pulled the timing cover and the timing gear and drive gear look good? I'm thinking the cam must be worn out, but having a tough time accepting this happened overnight---any advice.
No, but my brother is putting his 58 chevy apache on the chassis of a '98 Tahoe.
