This is mine - YouTube - 4-53T 2 stroke detroit diesel and 2 sticks shifting

1976 GMC with a 4-53T Detroit. Gets about 19mpg and sounds great! My only problem with it, is that it is only 2 wheel drive and is so heavy on the front end that the front end will sink in just about anything and I will be stuck. So I usually just park the thing every winter since we get a lot of snow and mud around here. And it does not like to start when the outside temps are below about 60 degrees unless I keep the block heater plugged in. So it is my summer truck. But since my Excursion is having engine trouble right now, I might be putting my Detroit back on the road.
