I have a friend that bought a 50 Ford car (should be near the same as your Chevy) with an S10 front clip in it. He seems satisfied with how it drives but unhappy with the looks. It is too narrow for those cars in my opinion. I have clipped several cars and a pickup with mid 70's Camero type clips that have worked great and are a bargain considering the end result. One thing you need to consider when measuring is the desired ride height. Some cars have plenty of tire to fender clearance at the stock ride height but it may change a lot when you lower the front end. Good luck!
