Turning a 74-76 Repu into a 77?

I have an interesting idea and I'm looking for input. I very much want another 77 Repu to replace the one I should never have sold. It is not as easy to find as a 74-76. But what if I said I had access to a totaled 77 and wanted to chop the back of the cab off with the intention of welding it onto a 74-76 to give the desired appearance of a 77... Possible? If anyone knows the depth I would need to dive to complete a project like that, I'd love to hear from you!

Is the 77 frame longer?

I wanna say it is because comparing photos of 77's Vs. other years it looks as though the bed is identical but the rear wheel is farther back because of the added length in the cab.

I have a 1975 and a 1977 REPU. I just did a rough measurement from the center of one hub to the other. The 1975 was 105", the 1977 was 109".
