    Hey Buzz4041 looks like your well equipped with a lift, that would be a real nice addition to any shop.
    I was down to Corpus Christi this pass weekend playing in a Seniors softball tournament to benefit Toys for Tots, it netted a few hundred toys. I see your using a engine that belongs in the truck unlike my chevy.

    Depends on what you call late model and little modifications--------
    You can build a package using the front crossmember and a -arms/steering/suspension to adapt to what ever frame structure you choose as well as the rear --however in 1997 they went to a rear trans/differantial/suspension that was quite advanced and it will get complicated. I got a complete rear package along with the torque tube for a build for a friend with a 34 truck. also sourced a cut out of the chassis structure so I would have all the diminsions/geometry of the vett to mount under the truck------

    If your frame is bad/rusted/etc I would suggest sourcing a replacement frame from one of the builders to use the vett stuff on------
    not putting your stuff on a vett frame

    Welcome to the forum, Gary. You really should start your own thread instead of jumping into Navy's build thread with your questions. Just click the "Forum" tab at the top left, then the forum name you want to post in, and finally the box "New Thread" and follow the process. No one's too picky about which forum you choose.

    I'm not a fan of frame swaps in general, unless they are done to facilitate registration in the face of tangled government regulations, like our friends in NZ face. Adapting a body to a late model frame is a lot more work than people think it is, and getting an old body to "sit right" and "look right" is generally pretty difficult, and even then when you look underneath it's an obvious swap vs frame to fit. Like Jerry says, you'd be much, much better off sourcing a replacement OEM style frame and using your 'vette components on that base then trying to graft the two together, IMO.

    Once you get a thread started you can send the Moderator, "mrmustang" screen name, a PM and ask him if he's willing to move these three posts to that new thread.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
