I think your cab would be more comfortable on an s-10 frame, and the build would be easier.   Lots of guys with model A's don't use A frames.  Or make your own.

Sounds really unconventional, but could be intriguing if it were fenderless.

Got pics?

The body can be made to fit, but it will take some work. The model a frames are fairly skinny which makes it tough to sit the body on the frame.

She will bolt right up to the S10. The front end will take a little bit of fab work, but it will be allot easier to build.
