Although my 39 pickup is complete I would like to buy a donor car for the engine suspension and drivetrain. I want to turn it in to a daily driver low with a v8 I was thinking of a 2000 or later salvage Corvette but am open for sugestions. Does anyone have experience with this, it is my first project and could use all the help I can get. In stead of spending a lot of money on the individual parts I might spend less this way and have everything on hand.Let me know what you think of my ideaThanks Gerrit
Hi Gerrit61,I am just finishing a convertion on a 1955 with a 2006 GTO but I think a 1939 is narrower than the 55 but it is sure working out well i have a few pics on a post in here of some int but i was going to try get some more on shortly.Im used the LS2 6.0L and trans and rear ind.also used the engine cradle and front struts.This is the same drive out of a vette.
Never thought about the GTO Thanks
