Default 50 Dodge Pilot



Got it cheap, saved from the crusher, and it has a good title. Gonna use the cab, the chassis has too much rust. It had a rotten flat bed, now gone.

Default Another photo

The body is decent. I pulled the seized flathead, cylinders are soaking, but still locked up tight. Trans is out. The plan is to pull the front end in one piece, and lift the cab soon. A good cab clean out will happen as the small residents left a mess. They moved into the doors too.

Default the plan

These trucks do grow on ya. I have two good engines, a nice running slant 6 with standard trans, and an AMC 360 with auto. The slant 6 is in a rusty 81 Dodge donor truck. I could use the pedals and driveline too.

Default Slant 6

This engine is a 68, and runs well. Mopar in a mopar. Sounds right., but will it light up the tires.

Default Donors, 3 become 1

Here are the donors. The S10 runs, will provide the chassis, has a 2.8, with lots of bottom end noise. Need to gather up a 10 bolt rear axle. Rusty Dodge in the background has the slant 6. I plan to follow your road map Joe. I would like to install the entire newer Dodge pedal assembly.

Good looking start.
There is one of these that has been for sale for a while down the road from me.
I had an old fiberglass inboard boat that had a slant 6 in it years ago.Very dependable.

Lightbulb firewall

is the length of the six going to affect the firewall and radiator with the frame swap

l had to modify the firewall to clear everything when the camaro sub-frame was used on mine because with the V-8 it is set back about 8 or 9 inches into the cab area, the radiator placement also had to be massaged a touch.

l cut the frame horns off from the pieces that were left from stock frame surgery. l used them to graft the stock pieces on the sub-frame to attach the bumper in the stock position.
