I built the frame. Putting a car body on a truck frame is an easy way to build a hack job.

I built everything but the front 4 ft of frame. The front 4 ft is Chevy luv becuase I originally used a luv diesel driveline. But it didn't take long to realize I wanted solid axles and more power so I put Dana 44s in and a 3.8 Buick v6. 5:13 gears with front and rear lockers and 35 inch tires

Thats pretty neat. Cool that you reconize "hack jobs" not some florida deal where they stack frames and call it badass. Maybe some day i can link some tons and put it on some jeep.

Here is the link to all the photos I took over the years. Excuse some of the poor qaulity, they are 35mm scanned to the computer.
https://smg.photobucket.com/user/4x4chevette/library/1986%20CS%20Chevette%204x4


PAGE 8 THE QUALITY GETS BETTER. I started this build when I was 16 years old with the help of my dad. 2003ish took about 6 months for the first built. Then i stripped it down and went bigger. Sold it 90% finished in 2005.

Found it on craiglist for sale in 2012. I bought it back. it had not been "finished" and was in worst shape. Knowing more now than I did in 2005. I pulled the driveline and upgraded again.

Last August i rolled the car with no roll cage. So I pulled the body and the running gear is sitting out back under a tarp waiting until i find another donor.

I stripped this car down 2 years ago after the roll.

The axles from it are going under my jeep right now
