New frame for the old girl to bring her into todays standards. 92' S10 Sonoma was the donor.

Body dropped on the S10 frame to see how things fit.

Have now pulled the frame back out from under the body and decided to clip the old 49 frame with the S10 to keep body mounts and things easier.

How bad is the floor my 50 ford coupe the floors were fucked
Used a 80s Malibu frame and floor pan worked great
Just cut the Malibu down to the rockers set ford body on top
Trimed till it fit and started welding

Been there done that... Gota try new things to keep life interesting. Will see how far this takes me, might allways get another 4x4 but i'm getting old now and the body cant take the abuse it used to.
