Mike,
This sound a little like a hemorroid transplant, yeah you can do it, but
why? 8 )
Seriously, what is there about the S-10 that you like so well? Are going
to use any of the interior or just the rolling chassis and power train?
Stock suspension or with the nose in the weeds?

I keep thinking about the same idea, putting my '37 on a, say a 4X4
frame. It seems that if this is a good idea then you have to find a
donor frame that is fairly similar to what you have. You might have to
move the motor, extend/shorten the frame, would the shock towers fit
under the fenders?

Maybe you use part of your old frame and add the whole thing on top of
the new frame/chassis.

How about this? Weld body mounts onto the donor frame so your old body
will fit. Is this what some do? There are numerous places to connect
to the frame like fender and running board supports...

Then there is just replace the axles and motor/tranny.

Ideas? Books on the subject?
