Just some thinking. When I get the time, the next project I will be taking on is a 'new' tow vehicle. I plan on a using a fuel injected 454 from a 'newer' truck. Depends on what kind of deal I run into. But my question is... what year to build? I dont really care about the stock drivetrain, because I will be putting '90+ drivetrain into it. I am thinking an early 70's era dually(looking like a 70-71). If I cant find a dually, I will make a single wheel into one. I just like this body style. I am not sure of frame stength though. Oh, and it MUST be 4 wheel drive to start with. (I hope) I cant see myself spending $30k+ for a true new truck. Might even spend the cash and get a crate complete 454 straight from GM. Anyone have any thoughts about all this? Thanks Ken H.
