I bought this truck probably a year ago now based on 4 pictures and 2 people I know's endorsement on how good it was.  Believe it to be a 67 or a very early production 68 before they started putting the fender markers on.  Based on dates stamped on the frame and the dates on the fuel tanks all being between May-August 67.  Shows 90 something k on it.  When I got it delivered the amount of rodent mess was the worst of anything I have ever bought.  I pulled what carpet it had out and tossed it.  Then out came the pressure washer.  Pressure washed the inside.  Currently has a later 534 in it with a 5 and I am pretty sure a 3 speed aux.  Don't know what rear gearing is but suspect it is in the 6's on hendrickson spring.  Has a hoist.  I think it may be stretched to be a farm dump truck.  Eventually it will be DT466 powered, and shortened up and serve as a sort of big pickup with a flat bed and a Bentz sleeper on it.  Has some dents but no rust.

I like the idea of a big pickup!

Trucks ain't light so a project that can move itself around is a plus! 

Keeping it stock might be fun but thirsty!

This is going to be something I can potentially daily drive so I don't think a non original 534 is really something I want to feed to go pick up some truck parts or something with besides I already have the DT466 which will move it very nicely and probably about 4x as economically. 
One thing that is concerning is that it has wedge brakes.  First time I have every dealt with them.  When I do the rear axle swap those will go away but still have them on the front axle.
