Reg Cab Shortbed s-10 Frame on Airride, but what body?????

i recently picked up a 1991 chevy s-10 pickup with a vortec v6 and 700r4 tranny. the truck has full airride setup including rear 4 link onboard compressors tanks 1/2" lines. i ended up trading a motor for it that i paid 300 dollars for. anyways, the body is a turd so im thinking of using all the running gear for a streetrod project

any suggestions on what may have the same dimensions as a 1991 chevy s-10 reg cab shortbed ive looked in archives but all use extended cab or longbox frames.

any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

john

have you thought of lengthening the frame to fit whichever bodies fit the longbed/ extended cab frames?

Could get a Grand Am, do a little work to it, and put that on the frame. Of course I would swap out the V6 for a V8. Could be one hullva project. May take more time than you want, but would be really cool.
