Would 79 z28 front clip fit in 52 ford

I was just wondering if the clip from a 79 camaro would fit in a 52 ford truck. I know the Mustang 2 and nova and stuff would work. If someone can let me know that would be great.

You may need to cut the ford frame out and weld in the Camaro sub frame.

The only thing that will really matter in this swap is the width. I have to say, I am sorry I put the Camaro under my Chevy truck of the same vintage, it is MUCH too wide. I would go with a 80ish Buick Regal, Cutless, Malibu frame clip, it is about three inches narrower.
