i did a 57 Chevy very similar for a customer using a Nova subframe. if i ever did another, i would use an aftermarket frame instead. lot of cutting and fitting and welding!

Been working on a '65 Ford F100 Shortbed w/ 390ci and 4 on the floor for a couple years. Has come a long way compared to the condition I found it. Made a lot of progress on it but always something to do. Had a 352 but replaced with the 390 which I had totally rebuilt a year ago. Next big item is getting it painted.

Looks like the body is it good shape and no rust. Guess you don't have to deal with the road salt that we do. Its a killer on the vehicles.
