Been there, done that.  The Monte Carlo rear is a very good fit width wise.
I installed one in my 57 panel back in '90.  Needless to say, spring perches
have to be welded into the correct places.

On that panel, I also used the Monte's complete steering geer to get power
steering on the stock axle.  Fairly easy bit of back yard engineering.
