Front end subframe for '53 Chevy 210 sedan
I recently purchased a beautifully restored 1953 Chevy 2 door sedan. It has had some „upgrade“ modifications, for reliability and safety (12 volt conversion, HEI distributor, dual reservoir master cylinder, sway bar), but ultimately I would like to consider a front end swap. I like the feel and handling of an old car, and I'm not looking for „sport car“ handling, but I'd like disc brakes, and slightly better front end componentry. Is there a recommended series of donor front ends which would work well for me? Is this a major modification? Or is it something that doesn't require advanced shop equipment?
I used a s 10 front clip. It works well and is welded directly to th e. Original frame rails. The only problem is the tread width of the tires. The s10 is about 3inches to narrow. You can install wheel spacers to compensate. I think a Camaro or Monte Carlo would work just fine
