vega frame swap

so i saw a 1975 Vega for-sale that i might buy
the guy who has it said that he was gunna swap the sub frames out for a first gen s10 short bed frame

im wondering,are the wheel bases of the two the same? would there be any advantage to doing this? would i have to change anything on the s10 frame if the wheel base is the same(other then suspension parts to give the Vega a better ride hight)
the only reason i would consider this is because parts fro s10s are alot more common then H-body parts and the frame would be stronger.
and id also imagine modifying the s10 frame for a v8 would be easier
