It really was not that heavy. It did not have the factory core support and it was pretty well minimized. The radiator was mounted to a tree that stayed with the chassis and there were just two plugs for the lights in the front end. The bumper slid into two tubular slides that were welded to the front of the chassis and pinned into them.Thanks for the post. That’s what I was thinking of doing. A ‘55 must have been heavy? I’ll have to build a tubular tree and mount the radiator to the frame side.
