I'm a little ahead of myself on this build. The the plan is to stuff this 6V71 into a 2005 Ford F550 frame and drop the cab down and make a 50's style Peterbilt pickup. The transmission will most likely be an RTO-9513 or possibly a 6x4 trans setup. Still mocking things up and lots to think about but thought I would share this build. The cab is a 2000 Peterbilt 378 and the engine is a 1958 Detroit 6V71. I'll slowly collect the needed components over the next 6 months and get going on it by the end of next summer. Lot's of thinking and designing to do before I search for the right frame. Should be a lot of fun. Here's a video of loading the cab and some pictures.
