1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread

So I figured I might as well make a build thread. I started out with a 1984 single cab long bed S10, a front clip, a cab from a 52, a short box from a 49 and a 1999 4.8 litre and a 4l60e. I paid 300 for the s10 delivered, 800for the clip and cab and title, and 300 for the 49 box. The truck will be matte bright white with gloss black grille, bumper, door handles... All the trim. Cab is sound deadened with fat mat. I have Dakota digital vhx gauges, vintage a/c, stern beast 20" wheels, tanks Inc fuel tank and set up, psi wiring harness... And a bunch of other nice parts for it, I designed custom hood emblems also. Pics coming!
Here is the 52 parts hat I started with .



Here are the truck parts



4.8 with 120,000 on it

Re: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread

I read everyone else's posts and changed he measurements a little because I want my truck on the ground but with no air ride... So here are some of the mounts I made

Some weld action





I made some panels and brad rolled them for the firewall



Seat installed and column mocked up

Re: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread

In having a local upholster do my seat, door panels and headliner kind of similar to this



These are the wheels I have 20x9 Stern Beast wheels. I wanted a somewhat modern resto mod type look



These are the headlights which I think will be awesome against the matte white

Trans painted



Motor painted, did the valve covers matte white. I used a 1970 gm fleet bright white and then sprayed a matte clear on top



Intake cover, it rid of the vortec



Here are the logos I designed and had a friend cut them out with a cnc laser, these will be gloss black on the sides of the hood

Re: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread

Dash primed after I filled some holes and built a small cubby hole



Had to check one of the gauges out !



After I had it mostly mocked up



I did 3" drop lower control arms and 3" blocks in the black

Most of he body work done, I hand made the front part of the floors and trans tunnel as well as shaved the hole for the fuel fill



That's all for now.. Should have my interior back in a week or so and I'll use it painted and hopefully done in a month, maybe a little longer.

Re: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread

Thanks ! I'm going to stain the wood black also.. And do gloss black steel
strips in between the wood. I've never seen a matte white with gloss black trim 47-53... Ever. So I hope it turns out like I'm hoping

At the front of the running boards it's right around 5 inches off the ground. I think it looks lower in the picture than in person.

Looking good man. I'm interested to see how your firewall came out with your custom bead rolled panels.

Looks really good! I'm at 5.5" under the front of my running boards and 3700 miles into it the closest it's come to hitting anything was pulling on to the 4 post hoist for the alignment.

Re: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread

That's awesome ! I like them low. The last truck I built I did air ride, and it was cool but I didn't think it rode the way I thought it should. I did a manual valve setup on it. If I did it again I would do electric valves and height sensors so it stays at ride height no matter what when you set it. I drive quite a bit. I live a hour away from friends and family so the stuff I build has to be reliable. I did the LSX because I wanted the power, reliability and gas mileage .
