65 chevy truck to 70 chevy truck frame

I have a 65 chevy long bed and a 70 long bed was wondering if the 65 body would bolt up to the 70 frame without moving any of the body mounts.

The same frame was used from 1960 to 1972. Yes it will bolt on.

63-72 is definitely the same. The only difference is going to be ball joints, spindles and disc brakes and frankly... all of that stuff is interchangable. The early sixties trucks used a torsion bar front end. Now you can take the 63+ crossmember and put it in a pre62 with some slight mods. 73+ uses the same exact crossmemeber but the frames themselves did change.
