Frame idea for roadster pickup?

I am building a roadster pickup from a '50 Ford truck cab. I thought about a 65 Chevy pickup frame because they have a cool looking a-arm setup, but it is a front steer set-up. I need something that is rear steer. Modification is not a problem.

Rear steer? If that means what i'm thinking then it seems pretty dangerous

GM "G" bodys have rear steer setup. Frames are narrow enough they may work out well to.
Earlier "A" bodys did to, but they are scarce as most of those are under a restored classic. Lots of "G" body stuff in the salvage yard though. practically all with disc brakes too.
"G" bodys are 80 and up malibu,regal,gran prix,monte carlo etc.
