Looks like you definitely have something to work with. That should turn out real nice. If that has a steel frame it sure would look good with 2 or 3 ft more wheel base. However if it is aluminum it will be just fine as is. Those with the integral sleeper are getting rare I think. Should be one you can be proud of when you get it done.

I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

It is going to be a long road for sure. It is aluminum. Has a 335 Cummins with a cracked block and bad rod. Landed a 350 Cummins that is going to go in one of these days. Then lots of time with a MIG. Somewhere in the fray I have to locate a passenger side windshield, and hoping that I can have a glass company cut me some flat glass for the rear window, side vent window and sleeper (if you can call it that)

Welcome PickerRun.
Really great looking truck you have. Don't know anything about these, so will be watching your build with interest.
Intergrated sleeper, Dima in Europe will like this one I'm sure.

So far
-Aluminum front motor mount from 335 will not work for 350, and is cracked, welded and fish plated.
-Rear motor mounts won't work with 350, new ones on the way
-Radiator is shot
-Frame cracked where pillow block is attached
-Bell housing for 350 to Fuller 13 speed needs to be located and installed
-That power steering unit in the foreground is just there for laughter

Had fun taking it apart, only have 6 bolts to drill out and re-tap, the not so fun part is what they want for a new core.
I am going to give myself some lessons on polishing aluminum shortly.

1500.00 $ last year for a core about that size for a low mount Pete, thats a little excessive.

$800 to $1200 is what they are telling me. Lots of elbow grease and a corner to stitch up with a welder.

The bell housing from the 335 will fit the 350 and you won't have to deal with new mounts,but you'll have to dial indicate the housing to the crankshaft.
Whats the matter with the core, a leaker or plugged.
