Hey all, need a little guidance. I just purchased a 1954 3600. I am looking to makes some upgrades and wanted a little help. I have heard but not 100% sure that a Corvette C4 rear end, suspension, and spindles will work on a 54. Is this correct?

Hi JPRenat, Welcome. If I am correct then the 3600 is the longer wheelbase variant of either 3/4 or 1/ton?

In truth, you can put any suspension and driveline in anything but how much it costs and how well it works is the real question.

If your original frame is solid then there is a raft of aftermarket fronts and rear conversions available including complete frames like an Art Morrison.

If you can give us a better idea of what your needs and wishes are and how much you think you should spend then we can give you focussed advice.

What condition is your original frame in?
