    Roy,
    I think the S10 rear would be too narrow, but it depends.
    What you want to use will depend on wheel size and rear suspension setup. I am running leaf springs on the outside of the frame like the original F1 design, so I am using a 1970-1981 camaro / firebird rear which is pretty much the same width as the original. Another rear which is the same width would be a 1968-72 chevelle rear. Original brackets have to be removed and new suspension brackets welded on for either one.
    If you are running a 4 link or super wide tires then you may want to mock up the tires and see what you need as far as width, wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface.

    Look at the picture showing the front wheel centered in the front fender during mockup, will be 2" lower than that in the fender at ride height.
