No but it definitely sounds interesting. I did have a friend years ago that drove a '50 ford drw 4x4 with a 12' flat bed. It was sitting on an 80's or 90's frame with a 400m and 4spd.

With a welder and a bit of imagination, anything is possible. Especially with a mechanically injected diesel powerplant and a stick shift.


I'd do a model A though.

Thinking about pulling my 93 f350 crewcab off and mounting a 65 c50 on it. Anyone done one similar?
The pickup frame isnt that beefy.... so dont be using it like a 5ton.

"Basterd Powertrain Hybrid" :rock:

I love it as it irritates the Ferd and Chebby crowd, as well as any purists who just love stock because it's stock. Go for it, sounds like good old fashioned swappers guide cool :cool

The ford drives great. Did a lot of work to the brakes and suspension, dual tanks and runs on WMO. I really don't like the cab that much. The stock gages are unreliable. list goes on.

You missed a number on the medium duty, sometimes referred to as "business class" :joker:

I know, I know: you are going to use what you have, and you have an F350. Still an awesome swap IMNSHO ;Sweet
