A frame swap is a lot of work. My '42 has a '74 Nova front clip and it rides and handles very well. I am using a '57 Chevy truck radiator and it cools my Olds 455 just fine. Can you just use the S10 front clip and rear end? Also I used the Nova steering column with a U-joint for a steering column. Chassis Engineering makes a bolt in ride height adjustable Mustang 2 crossmember for your car. Also 42-48 Chevy are the same except the grille area and the different body styles.
