Hi Everybody,

I'm planing to build a 55-57 Chevy Truck with a Big Block, maybe with Blower.

Now I've read a lot about those mixed Frames with Camaro Front Clip......
I'm not sure if I should go this way too? Buy or Build a truck with front Clip OR buy a totaly new Frame (Art Morrison, TCI....)

Is it worth to buy a new Frame? Also if i sell such a truck?
Has anybody build a 55-57 Chevy Truck with Big Block? Any experience?
Does a Big Block AND a Blower under the Hood?

does anyone else miss when chevytrucks were made of all steel. sure they didnt get the mileage, but man they were tough. i like the new ones, but replacing all this plastic clip nonsense gets old. i don't like being able to break the spare parts

You probably wouldn't get much if you plan to build it and flip it. A project you're talking about will likely run into the 10s of thousands unless you have a major hook up on parts. There's also not many people that are going to

Buy a truck and put a blower on it and enjoy your new ride!
