Ight gurus got a question

I wanna do a 351w swap I've got the engine now I need the truck. I wanted to do a early ranger 83-88 2wd drag truck... however I can't find any cheap ones. But there are tons of early 90's, is my opinion there butt ugly will a 80 grill/ front clip fit a 90?

1983(first year) to 1992 were all considered 1st generation and dimensions are the same.
1989-1992 there was a style change but wasn't considered a new generation since dimensions are pretty much the same.
1983–1988: 66.9 in (1,699 mm)
1989–1992: 66.8 in (1,697 mm)
So shouldn't be an issue changing front clip

1993 to 1997(2nd generation) saw a 2.5" width increase which could be a problem in matching front clip to cab
69.4 in (1,763 mm)
