Project: Alice

Hello all, I have been following several of the threads on this forum and I think it is time to start my own to show off my ambitions.

The Truck - "Alice"

1964 J-200 Townside
Tornado 230 Straight 6, The first american made overhead CAM motor.

T90 Trans, I believe a Dana 20 Transfer, Dana 44's front and back with 4:10s

This truck was fun for a few summers, I got it running and tinkered with it, When it ran, it purred like a kitten, when it did not run, it purred like a dead kitten that took a lot of money to bring back to life.




I decided it was time to upgrade, I spend a few months searching craigslist everyday looking for something with a 5 speed, and enough power to tow around my CJ-7 when the time comes...

Thats when I came acrossed a 1992.5 Dodge Power Ram with an intercooled Cummins....

my father has a 96 3500 with a cummins and we love it so I decided I needed one as well.

It is the perfect truck for the swap because the motor has 135,000 and the body and frame will make it another 10 miles if I am lucky.

I plan to do a full drivetrain swap starting on Monday. I will have lots of pictures as I work.

Enjoy the holidays.

Welcome to the land of empty pockets and unfinished projects...

Looks like a sweet truck, I will be watching to see how it turns out.

Guess it did work, that photo is Alice from her good side... The only good side.





I made a bumper quick so I had something to go camping with.




This is the motor to be... If you look close you will notice a few "odd" things. first up is the hydraulic pump and valve for a plow... If you know anyone looking for a solid 7'6" Fisher plow take a look on the rochester craigslist...

Next on the "odd" list is the "up" pipe off of the turbo going through the hood. This truck was on its way to being a sled puller until the previous owner needed some quick cash so a stack out of the hood was the best way to pump all of that black smoke from the exhaust. The pump has been turned way up so as you drive down the road it looks like an old steam train....

So what are you going to do with the old 230 (which actually isn't the first American made OHC)? Is it any good? 2bbl by any chance?

Nice looking truck btw.
