I am doin a vega in my shop and i was trying to see if a vega would fit on a beretta frame without to much modification to the frame or body because an s-10 frame has to be cut and welded to much for my taste i was lookin at a beretta im putting a corvette engine with a six speed trans in the car and that means the sub frame wont hold and it will need to go on a frame if not the beretta frame what other vehicle frames will this car fit on without alot of modification having to be done Confused i did the other with a smaller engine and trans so i didnt have to put a frame under it but this one im having trouble with anyones help will be much appriciated.  Grin

it has installation instructions for the don hardy front and rear subframes..

there are a bunch more links on those pages...

buddy the beretta is a front wheel drive unibody design, and does NOT have a removable frame! if you are looking to put the vega body on a frame, an early s-10 blazer has a shorter wheel base than the pick up truck. wikipedia says the vega has a 97 inch wheel base, the s-10 blazer uses a wheel base of 100.50 inches. if you choose to try this job, seek out a leaf spring fab and repair shop, they can shorten the front of your s-10 leaf springs by re-rolling the front eyes, or make you new main leaves that are 3 and half inches shorter in the front section. by the way, my little brother has a 1966 nova hard top that sits on a modified 1977 corvette frame.
