donor frame for a 32 Chevy truck

I started with a 32 Chevy 4dr sedan and cut the body to make a truck cab. I just want to build this thing cheap. I'd like to put a donor frame under it. I know the front fenders won't clear the top of the suspension. I though I could cut out a piece of the fender and just rebuild it to fit over the suspension. But I do not know what frame to look for. I know the track will be wider, I'm hoping for not too wide and I'll use skinny wheels.
My last car, still not finished, I spent a fortune on suspension and crap for it and it rides like pure ****. I talked to Hortons once about it and they said thats the number one complaint they hear. So this car I just want to run, I'll live with it if it rides like ****. I haven't touched my other car in two years.
thanks for any suggestions.
