Hmm Which would be easier?

Well I have been thinking a little bit lately about maybe selling my truck and buying something thats more of a project that can be used hard, have fun with, and not worry about ruining the paint.

So anyhow what do you all think would be easier and or better

Putting a 7.3 and 6spd into a 73-79 Regular cab F-350

or Putting a 73-79 Regular cab body on a 95-00 Regular cab F-350 frame?

Its not even scratches, I mean I love my truck and most likely I couldnt sell it if I wanted to for what I owe, but I think it would be cool to have a 73-79 Diesel to be different. I would like to have something with No payment that I could work on as I have money and build. Not build something that I am paying on every month.
