48-52 Ford F-1 is the only frame that your cab will bolt to. "Fit on" well that is a wide open window, with enough modification you could "fit" your cab on a Peterbuilt frame, or a 27 Model T, it will "Fit" on what ever you want to spend the time to make it fit on.

Personally, I am a big modify the original frame guy, I loath frame changes. Because basically it's just for the sake of doing it, it gains you nothing you can't do with the stock frame that looks MUCH better under your truck than some late model placenta.

That being said, there is one frame that I have seen used under those F-1s that look like it was darn near born there, a Toyota Tacoma 2000ish year model. The rear needs to be lenghtened at the spring pearch and a hundred other modifications as all frame "swaps" take. But damn it looks darn near stock when you are done.
