1961 chevy long bed

I have a 1961 apache long bed that is to long for my taste and am thinking about either having the frame and bed cut reduced or getting another short box and changing front clip ? what would be easiest ?

Obviously , getting a short bed and cutting the frame is the easiest method.

As for the front clip you need to be more specific to what you want to accomplish for more advise. Do you want to change the torsion suspension to spring suspension or what?
