55 chevy truck frame swap

does anyone out there know of the best doner vehichle to use in this endevor.my reasons are simple, by the time i bought all the after market parts to change suspension,steering,brakes, and etc. i think it would be easier to roll a 80,s short wheel base truck frame under her and fit old body to newwer frame.i have been told many different things to do and what way to do it. 79 camaro sub frame, cut and splice late model truck front frame clip to old frame.s-10 frame. if you have the answer or know where to go to get the help i need i would be eternaly greatful. thanks john s.
