The off the Wall Ford truckster project

Having more than a couple of 42-47 trucks I got to thinking I need a roadster so I've started on a roadster project using a '47 cab and doing something that will not be confused with a rat rod, At this time I'm thinking either a 4 or 6 cylinder for power. I'll try and load a few conceptual images here. Any suggestions?Click the image to open in full size. ,or Click the image to open in full size. or Click the image to open in full size., this could be a cheap build for me as I have most of the parts in the fields and sheds now.

Looks cool, I like it. I vote for v6 power, ever drive a Taurus SHO? 3.0 V6 DOHC Yamaha engine. I understand that it will hook up to a 3.0 Ranger/Aerostar rear wheel trans.

Interesting idea, I've been give some thought to a Mercruiser 471 engine out of a a boat they are 1/2 of a Ford 460, aluminum block, accept any head a 460 will including the aluminum pro-stock head, have a chevy bellhousing pattern and are cheap. Here's one that pushes a 1500 lb. car to 8.50 second run.s in a 1/4 mile.. Click the image to open in full size.

I'm always thinking as cheap as possible with the best results. Here's one that pushes a 1500 lb. car to 8.50 second run.s in a 1/4 mile.. Click the image to open in full size.

That is interesting, I have not seen one of them, not much of a boat guy, but sounds fun.

How about a nice old 2.8 Ford V6, lots of em laying around from Rangers, Mustangs, Capris, easy to work on, cheap parts, cams are available, Offenhauser has a 4bbl manifold and a 390cfm Holley 4v works great, Headers are avail from Edlebrock. Cheap and uncomplicated, all old school and no computers or EFI to mess with.
