'35 Chevy Dumptruck ???'s

I've got a '35 Chevy Dumptruck heres a pic,

that I want to street-rod. My ???? is, is the frame the same as the 35 pick-up? It would make things a little easier for me. It is all original as it is now(minus the fenders) Or would I be better off finding another frame. I have some skill in fabricating and 4X4 building (engine and swaps, axle gears, lift-kits,so forth). What would be the best bet for this project??????
I do know that it is the 2 1/2 ton, has the 206 or 216 6 cyl. (I can't remember which), and the dumpbed was a aftermarket item for the era.

Neat Truck!!

In the day the pickups were based on a car chassis and the trucks had a heavier chassis..

I think just a nice restore on the cab and chassis..It will take a bit of investigation but measure up a late clip with disk brakes to see if the front chassis clip will work on that truck and take the rear end from the same donor truck. I woudl be very tempted to take the donor parts from a 3/4 or 1 ton with the 8 stud wheels for that.

Engine? Your choice..mine I think would be something in the order of stock or mildly warmed engine so that you wind up with a gorgeous parts chaser or tow rig..

There are a couple of trucks of that nature around here that fellows have done something similar to and they are real eye catchers and useful to boot..

Just my opinion..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
