Can I use an S-10 frame under a 37 2 door slantback sedan?

I am looking at aquiring a ratty 37 slantback body with no frame. I have an S-10 frame and would like to use it under the 37. Is this possible and if so what modifications will need to be made.
Thanks!

Anything is possible... But it doesn't mean you should....It will take a lot of modification,, And more then likely will ''NEVER'' look right under the car.... No matter what you do... Your better of putting a clip or updating the one you have..... Me I would just build another frame..... So much easier then what you want to do..... You can also buy a Mustang II front end for it...


Everyone want's to do this frame swap today,,, thinking it's the easy way out... It's the hardest way to go....

You know, I think Chevrolet would have sold more S-10 chassis than complete trucks if EVERYONE wanted to stick one under there hot rod. I can't believe how many guys have asked this very same question in the last few weeks.
