This '58 Fleetside is being built as an everyday driver. Externally the truck will look some what stock. The main changes to the truck will be the chassis.
It is fitted with a LS2 motor and backed up with a 4L60 tranny, remember every day driver. The frame has been reworked to allow the truck to lay on the ground and only loose 2" in the bed. We will keep the body 2" off the ground so it does not get set down on a rock or something and damage the rockers or the bed sides. The front end is Camero. The fuel tank will be relocated to the rear of the chassis. The Ford 9" rearend will be narrowed and reworked to fit the trucks original wheel wells. The truck will run down the road on air ride suspension with dual compressors.
We will update as the build proceeds and decisions are made.
