In my opinion that would be a major job and many hours!
Various patch panels to fix rusty portions of ‘A’ pillar are available............would be the way I would go

I'm guessing the trifive in need of the "A" pillar transplant is a Nomad. Aren't A pillars specific to model....hdtp, sedan, conv, etc. It is not difficult to pull a body shell and do a swap. I had a 55 body hanging from the rafters when I replaced the frame. Six pully's and up she went. The bodies show up all the time on eBay. There is a 55 Nomad rolling chassis on eBay..$12K.

best rule I ever learned is replace as much as needed but not any more.
