chevy body swap?

Got a 1980 k20 4x4 and it needs everything: cab corners, rockers, doors, hood, fenders, inner fenders, core support, floor pans, etc. Considering a possible body swap. I am curious what other chevy gens will fit my frame with ease?

Probably pretty much the 73 to 87 models will all interchange. I'm not saying all years of body parts will swap with other years, just that any body of that run should bolt on. Of course the bed will have to be the same length.

I was in a similar situation with my '80 C10. But I found this '54 complete cab in a junk yard up on Signal Mt. and swapped it out. The bed is from the '80 with '54 fenders. Nothing major to the frame to make it all work out. Take a look:
