1937 Chevy Pickup Frame Swap
I am wondering where to start in looking for a frame for a 1937 chevy pickup 1/2 ton. I am helping a buddy to locate a frame that will work. S-10? If anyone has done this or seen it done, let me know which frames work, and what modifications will be needed.
any response is greatly appreciated!

Look at my Ford F1/S-10 frame swap on my website. I don't think you'll be happy with it. The S-10 is best suited for the fat fendered 46-52 pick ups.

37 Chevy Frame swap
Hey, I have the same problem that you have. I have a 37 with a Landcruiser running gear under it, which does not fit very well. I am trying to find a simple way to put a modern undercarriage under an old body. I posted a couple of weeks back and was shocked that there is not another member that has done this to a 36-39 Chevy pick-up. A Chevy Astro Van has a very similar wheel base and allready has the mounts for a 700-R tranny, I have been told that the steering box location will be an issue though. Keep me posted on what you have found and I will do the same.
I had the same problem, ended up using a 79 camaro front clip then built and welded on my own frame rails, used 3 by 5 tubing, maybe a little over kill but they fit nicely into the camaro clip rails
Why not just the stock frame and upgrade the suspension and brakes????
