Number Dummy, I'd like to answer the question you asked the original poster of this. Would I still want a unibody? Hell yes, they look awesome and since I'm an F250 person, the more awesome. I would simply add seat belts. I think everyone is so overhyped on disc brakes. Drums worked fine for 70 years and are still on heavy duty trucks. The only one I will change to disc is my '69 F250 because they were a stock option and a 100% bolt on with parts from my local NAPA store. I just left the truck driving business after 37 years and straight axles never bothered me (if the road is THAT bad, then I won't drive on it, lol) and whether they are hydraulic or air brakes, drums stop fine. Years ago I was into the engine swap thing but thats often a royal pain. The idea of putting an 8 mile per gallon big block 460 in an older truck makes no sense but I do understand personal desires and respect it. I just hate to see so many old vehicles routinely butchered as they are now.

the Y block is one of a kind. Im all positive about them except the rear mount distributor which means laying on top of the engine to get to it (unless you have a 57-59 Ford car in which the hood opens from the rear)
