I don't think a '36 1/2 ton pickup counts as a 'big heavy truck', and I
thought it was later than closed bodied cars from the same year. I have
seen some sort of model A or 32 roadster with an ordinary Pinto engine at a
swap meet in Amherst, New Hampshire, but the owner wasn't around to ask how
it runs. I would expect it to work just fine in a truck.

With the turbo, it should just be better. As I recall, the SVO Mustangs
moved very well, and don't remember at what point a 5.0 V8 in the same body
out performed the SVO or by how much.

I'd say dare to be different and go for it.
