Here is my 1962 c10 that I picked up a few years back that has turned into a frame off rebuild. I have added original pics of when I purchased it and some pics of the progress. I live here in SOCAL so I have the privilege to buy parts from various resources. Let me know if anyone has any ??? I will try to answer to my best ability.

Bad Ass

Thank you for posting pictures, I wanted to put rack and pinion, dropped spindles and a big V8 in my 62. You just gave me so much inspiration. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Greg I ended up using the stock rear suspension setup but used the rearend off a 1970 and used the same front k member off a 1970 and it actually bolted right up ....just had to re-drill a few holes...but after that was installed I ended up using the NO Limit Engineering rack n pinion setup and it actually bolted right up with a little modification to the frame where the steering linkage connects.

I also forgot to mention that I custom built the dollies to bolt up the the cab and bed that will also be for sale. Plus I also made an attachment that will connect to your cherry picker that will allow you to lift the cab and bed by yourself if your the type of guy that wrenches alone.
