Hello all, I'm new to the forum and I have recently accepted a build off challenge. The challenge is a street legal vehicle build and will include a quarter mile drag race as well. Kind of a friendly build off but I have decided on a memorial truck of the first truck my grandpa and me built. The idea is a 1980 f100 stepside on a car frame. Similar to the crown Vic frame swaps but I haven't found any information on a 1980 f100 let alone a stepside. I want the low stance from the car suspension and the disc brakes as you can imagine. I'm planning on putting a twin turbo Windsor in the truck with a manual shifted c6 transmission. My grandpa talked about a way that racers install a clutch plate on a c6 but I've never seen it. My main question is if there's a newer frame that will fit the needs of my build. The gas tank is going to be built to go behind the seat so tank placement on the frame won't be an issue for the build. Any suggestions or advice?
