    '54 International

    Been working on this on and off for the last few years. My old man had been helping some but passed very suddenly and I didn't touch it for over a year.


    When I bought it



    Swapped it on to a Dakota frame. If I did it over I think I would have just put a mustang 2 front end on the stock frame, oh well.




    I was going to run a ford 5.4/mustang t45 in this truck but in the end I couldn't get the steering/header/oil filter/upper radaitor hose to play nicely with each other. Also I lost a lot of cab room to that huge bitch.



    So I yanked that all out and sold it off. Found the engine I was originally thinking about using in this truck before I ended up with the 5.4. Toyota 2JZ. Trans is a Chevy AR5 manual.

    I was able to fit back almost all of the factory firewall save for a small bump out on the drivers side. Tons of room to work with now also.





    Random stuff

    Dodge 20's



    GTO seats





    And that is where I'm at now.

      I put in a little time here and there. I'm out of welding gas and haven't had a chance to get my tanks refilled the last few weeks so kind of stuck right now.

        2JZ

        Pretty much the best swap ever

          Just found this and subscribed I have a 52 L-110 sitting out back, accidental ebay buy! I bought it from the grandson the last time it was driven was in 65 according the license plate. They also had a water truck of the same vintage so there are no windows, parts of the transmisson are missing, and the motor is locked up.
          Thought about doing a frame swap also, read about several that had been done with Ranger frames, there was a guy on youtube who did several dodge swaps, I wasn't to impressed with his way of chopping the bed short to get it to fit the frame, the idea of the hemi motor was interesting though.

            Made up some engine/trans mounts and tacked up the turbo manifold. Decided to just run with a log style manifold with a T3 sized flange instead of a spaghetti monster/tubular (plus pretty much every pre-made manifold has a T4 flange). The pictured turbo was off my Cummins.


            I may redo the turbo flange to rotate it lower though. Downpipe/firewall clearance might be an issue with it this high.

            I also mocked up the LS style power steering pump and a Sanden a/c compressor (the stock one would have interfered with the steering rack)
