My truck was other then original in so many ways when I got it, I decided to mostly keep it that way and make some improvements in the process. The intent is for it to generally remain near original in appearance but perform to a more modern standard.
As it currently sits - Aluminum frame, factory 260" wheelbase, SQHD 4.11 rears, 5x3 (Fuller TO-905C and Spicer 3 speed aux) Cummins Big Cam 400 - N14 450 pump, HT3B turbo and a N14 pulse exhaust maifold. Body is the original cab and a later 62-64 wide tilt hood. I don't know if the hood is a factory piece or some older aftermarket replacement of some kind. I added a later FF-941 front axle with air disk brakes from a 85ish Kenworth dump truck. The brakes made a huge difference in stopping difference.
Currently in the process of being repainted. I will be continuing the blog of the process here.
