Default 59 Apache/C6 Corvette build

So I have built a few resto-mods in the past and just sold my twin turbo & supercharged Grand National and am ready to move on to my next project that will be my passion. As I'm getting older I have been really loving old trucks... So I thought I would spends a couple years building a 59 Chevy Apache with all Corvette C6 Grand Sport and ZR1 components.
I live in Arizona and sourced a good body.

Looks like a good start, gotta love them Arizona bodies...

What part of Arizona are you in? I'm a recent transplant to the Peoria area.

I'm a couple months behind on this thread. I have it posted on a couple other sites and thought I would get up to speed here. I'm also in Peoria. Around 75th & 101

Drive train installed. Set engine back about 2", but torque tube still too short.

Chassis update: Just about current. This last month I sent out the torque tube to Gamel Street Rods to extend 2" and install a larger drive shaft with ZR1 couplers. The rear end is from RPM. ZR1 Stage4 with 3:42 and Wavetrac.
I have the body at my buddys shop. I'll get some pics of that up next. Cutting out the GMC dash to install a 59 Impala dash.
