My 56 build

Hi everyone, Iím new to the forum . I bought a 56 step side in August. I bought the truck for the body which is in good shape. The mechanics of the truck was another story. I believe the person who brought it to this point wasnít very mechanically inclined, but have excellent bodywork skills. I bought it with a 350 and 700R4. I had to drive 9 hours one way to buy it and contemplatied what to do with it all the way home. I ended up junking the old frame and started over with new steel. Put an ifs with rack and pinion and 4 link rear end. After months of tinkering I nearly have a rolling chassis. On to the remainding bodywork which I donít particularly care for, but Iím ok at it. Just looking for others working on the same style truck to bounce ideas off!
