That will be one sweet truck.  So no Ford Racing crate motor plus 4 link suspension, 9" rear end, and disks all round?

Well... discs all around... but that's about it from that list ha and a ford 8.8 which is what replaced the 9", not as stout, but I don't think the 94hp from the flathead 6 will overwhelm it.

Fun fact, everyone likes the flathead v8 (and let's face it, they are cool) but the 226 inline 6 makes only 6 less bhp and marginally more torque, while weighting 40+ lbs less. Bummer about the exhaust note though, hard to beat the sound of a lumpy cammed v8

But an IL-6 with a lumpy cam and a throaty exhaust isn't that far off.  8)

I always wonder what kind of e.g.t.'s some of those are putting out. That bright orange (if the tube is stainless" looks to me to be around the 1600-1700 deg F range, which makes me think the e.g.t. is higher yet. That's amazing
