Default My New Project

Well this last weekend I picked up a 1957 Chevy truck. I am planning on transplanting this onto my RCLB LB7 truck frame. I know it's a crazy thought but I will be pulling back some power out of the motor so it's a little better street manors. It'll most likely be getting 4 linked and of course making it as light as possible. Still should make a good clip down the track and be fun to drive. It'll be a lot of work but it should be a very fun project.

I'd leave the body alone and it could be an older version of farm truck. Just better because it'll have a duramax.

That is the worst idea I have ever heard

The rest of it sounds like a brilliant idea

You did say a couple years ago that this was your goal, so congrats on being able to do it! It looks like it'll be a fun project.
