heres somthing to ponder on!!!

ok, again i just thought this up not 10 minutes ago and figured i would put it on the forums and see what you powerstroke guys thought about it!

so picture this, a 1956 chevy bel air nomad, on a 4 wheel drive chassis, powered by a twin tubo 7.3L powerstroke!!! and then heavily modified to be a truck/tractor puller!!

think about it, and post you ideas/comments about wether you think this might work or not!

You dont mix. Ford powered Fords and everything else is just a POS.

I think a powerestroke in a boat would be a better idea...a big powerboat with a powerstroke. Through-hull exhaust would sound sick!

If you got torches and a welder, as my buddy says, it all fits...

You don't have to please everybody, if it's what YOU want to see, do it!

I'm all for re-powers of anything, I'm sold on the 7.3 PSD's, and have thought of re-powering my '84 chevy mud truck with a PSD... people swap Cummins into everything, PSD's arn't so popular due to the complexity of the electrical system, but it's originally an International motor, so who cares what brand of body it goes into?

Post some pic's of the project!

why not go all the way, you already have a chevy body, why not throw the other 2 in the mix....dodge frame and suspension, powered by a powerstroke

Sounds interesting. I wouldn't make quite those choices but sounds interesting. I've always wanted to do a ranchero on a cut truck chassis with a 7.3

nice trucks "dieselcrawler", i like them they look very nice! and im guessing they run quite well too huh!

and i agree 100% "7.3heavyhauler", thats a great idea!

well guess i better tell yall exactly why i posted this!!!!

i posted that because i found a perfectly good 1956 Ford F100 body in a junk yard and have finally finished fixing it. i have the frame from an old dodge power wagon, (i think its a 5 ton truck frame from like 1950 or 1960, im not sure.) and i have the powerstroke from my truck because i swapped it out for a Caterpillar C7.1 ACERT diesel engine! so i have the body, frame, and engine. plus i have a shop to build it in so i said SHOOT!, why the hell not!! lol so starting today, me and my crew began the work on the "1956 F100 POWERSTROKE!" well thats what we are calling it. if yall have better ideas for the projects name, just post em!!! im open to any suggestions and if i get enough, i might let yall decide on this projects name through an online vote or something!!!!

thanks again guys for all your input!

a '56 nomad body is waaaay to hard to find these days! well at least in any good condition! thats why we chose instead, the '56 F100 body that my friend's uncle had in his backyard under a tarp!! he had refurbished the entire body of a '56 F100, and then just left it in his backyard under a waterproof tarp. so we asked if we could have it for this project!
