S10 chassis are incredibly versatile. Sharing all the front suspension with a GM G-Body, or Metric, Chassis means that there are a lot of easy-to-get parts from the aftermarket, the auto parts store, or the wrecking yard. And because the S10 chassis has leaf springs from the factory that makes for a simple rear suspension to deal with as well. But what’s even better is that there are a ton of bolt-on and weld-on suspension upgrades for the rear of an S10 so you can add a number of different 4-links, 3-links, and more. Another great benefit to them is that there are lots of ways to use them for different projects thanks to several companies making bolt-together kits for lots of old cars and trucks.
And since you can put any engine you can imagine into an S10 chassis, the world is your oyster. But if there is a weak point, it might be the factory fuel tank location, fuel pump, etc. Luckily there is room in the back of most old trucks to put the tank under the bed floor, and there are a bunch of ways to do that. In this video from our dude Brent from Halfass Kustoms, he’s going to swap a Mustang fuel tank into the back of this 1950 Chevrolet pickup that is sitting on an S10 chassis and you are going to want to watch for some inspiration and a little know how.
