...I have recently done a 1950 Chevy truck with S10 frame swap...now I may have come across a short wheel based panel. Any body ever put one on a caprice frame?...or a 47-54 truck on a caprice? ... Any info will be helpful. Thanx

The larger Caprice/Impala type frame is more commonly used under the Task Force (1955.2-1959) Chevy/GMC trucks. The track width is too wide for an Advance Design. Not to mention the width of that perimeter frame, seems to work better under the wider Task Force series cab.:)

Want a nice chassis for an Advance Design body swap? Try the Dodge Dakota.:cool: Check out Todd's build thread, "Project AD-kota." Worthwhile read.[;):cool:
