53 F100 subframe options

I don`t think I`ll have the cash to do the MII set up I wanted so I thought about just doing a camaro/nova/firebird subframe. I can usually find them in good shape for cheap. I know there is more fab involved but can someone tell me any cons involved with this set up? My buddy did this swap under his old 55 chevy p/u and his truck rode great.

The guys at the Ford Trucks site have compiled a lot of first hand experiences on various swaps. You can access each page from this page:
