Project Old Skool

Plans are to use a bunch of tube, this cab, hood and grill from this truck. Patina'd look will stay. I will be putting this together for my two young boys. I am going to used parts that I have laying around and hope to keep the entire budget around $1500.

[IMG][/IMG]

The 429 from my 69 T-bird. It needs a little work. It has two bent pushrods. It will be getting a cam upgrade. It will stay carbed for now, but may get propane down the line.

[IMG][/IMG]

I am undecided on what transmission to use. I have a C6, and I could find a np 435 pretty easy. I am leaning towards a C6. I will use a 203 to 1356 doubler. Cut down 89 f-350 frame, Dana 60 front, Sterling 10.25 rear. I am going to shoot for a 118''ish wheelbase and run my cut 42'' Iroks.

[IMG][/IMG]

I will use the frame from this truck.

[IMG][/IMG]

Dana 60 front from this one. Anyone want to buy the cab off this truck?

I need to finish up the hay rack on my duece, then clear a spot for this project.

Dude you got a Ford graveyard lying around. And an auto will be easier for any kid to learn how to drive and wheel with.

There is a really big crease/dent in the back of the cab, the floor panels are going to need replaced too. I am going to have to dig it out of the dirt when the ground thaws. I will get my tractor out and maybe see if I can pull it out. We will see how good of shape the cab is in when I finally get it out of there. The plates that are on it are 1963, so I imagine it has been sitting there since then. I can use these two trucks for parts too. Not that there is much salvageable though.

i like the late 30's-40's cabs better for a 4x build, but this will be pretty damn cool regardless. old iron is class. shit just does not get much cooler than old iron with modern running gear. always wanted to do a ratrod tow truck 4x4 on rocks and smaller ags.

Why not use that 6.9/7.3 on the pallet? This is going to be cool no matter what you do.

I seriously considered that. It is a 7.3 IDI, I have a banks turbo kit for it too. I could go with that and the zf5 sitting on the floor next to it. I like to have the insurance of knowing I have a backup engine for my 86 crew cab. It would make things alot more simple, because everything would bolt in. The 7.3, zf5, and 1356 were all pulled from the red and white 89, which is the frame I will be using. IDK. Maybe I should take a vote. 7.3 IDI with a ZF 5 speed. Or a 429 with C6. What do you guys say?

diesels are fawking gay for more than than trail crawling imho. i've seen a shit ton of mud in your videos and unless it was built to the hilt i'd never wheel a diesel for those conditions.

p.s. i don't give two shit's what you diesel guys think of my opinion. they are big and nose heavy and wtf does a wheeler need an overdrive for anyways? 429-c-6-t-case doubler-done

I can't wait to see this thing come together. I've always wanted to take a beat up 30's-50's cab and set it on top of a newer or homemade frame and wheel the piss out of it.

My vote goes big block and NP435. That's what I wheel. Second choice big block and C6, which is probably easier.

I vote big block C-6. Less for the kiddos to worry about and as much as I like my diesel for a DD, it's hard to beat a 429-460 for wheeling. Plus it will be nice to start them on a fairly stock engine and upgrade it for more juice as they progress.

I will probably stick with the 429/C6 combo. I considered making this thing somewhat streetable, and the diesel would have been nice for that, but I'll just have to buy premium until I get the propane on it.
