I have a97 dodge Dakota v8 stick reg cab short box. was kicking the idea around to pull the box of it and find a early 50s dodge panel truck cut it at the doors and end up with a Dakota panel or town wagon. any input would be appreciated thanks

I intend to keep the body and frame original, but opt for a 6.2,6.5 GM (Detroit) or a 6.9/7.3 Navistar which ever I can find within my budget. The rear end has to be swapped as it contains a wall climbing 7.39:1 ratio so presently with the original 6 cyl. it would do an astounding 40 MPH @ 3700 RPM Just shy of the redline of 3800 RPM.
