Frame front clip swap????

I've been away from building rods to long and I'm not up on the products available in the market place and need some guidance.
I'm working on a 49,chey Sedan/Delivery and have a 86 S/10, 2/WD P/U with the idea of breeding the front frame clip which has a 5 inches narrower wheel track then the 49. Anyone have any ideas on how to compensate the wheel tracking?
I'm also considering using the the S/10 rear by tubbing the 49 and running wide rubber but will need to widen the wheel tracking about 5 inches. Any ideas? Is there a wheel out there that may solve the rear problem MAYBE?

Thanks in advance
