Corvette frame on S10 is it possible
 
So I would like to know if a 2000 Chevy s10 body would fit on a corvette chassis if so what would be the best year and model

Probably easier to graft the Vette components to your s10.......

Oh dear God, will it "fit"? HUH? Think about what question, will it "FIT", you KNOW it won't fit, can it fit with enough modification? Of course, you could modify a White Freightliner frame to fit a Yugo if you spend enough time and money.

Would you do it for the "handling" ?

Exactly what I was wondering. You know for a body-on-frame truck, these vehicles can actually handle quite well. I wouldn't bother trying stuck anything from a corvette into an S-10 other than maybe the engine (and that's only if the corvette was a 97 or newer model)

I am the wrong guy to ask as I can show you a Jeep Wrangler on a C-4 Corvette chassis and am currently building a rod on a Suzuki Sidekick chassis with a 472 Cad/T400 and 9 inch rear to have a custom body..So in this case a complete C-4 chassis and grafting the S-10 body on it is well withing the realm of possible..Of course it all depends on the skills of the builder..

Technically yes, but there are a few problems:

Generally the corvette has a shorter wheelbase and a slightly wider track. This means at the very least the wheels will stick out a bit. If you put a flare over the wheels then that solves the problem.

Then there's the problem of actually finding a suitable corvette chassis. Would it be cost effective?
