    What an interesting project idea.

      I had thoughts of buying a cop car and pulling guts and feathers and transplanting it all into my 47 Lincoln. Couldn't do a frame swap without a lot of cutting, the Lincoln frame is welded to the body like a unibody. I woke up though, realizing how much I hate computer controlled engines and transmissions and all that goes with them. Would be nice to have a 4.6 in it, but all that computer stuff is above my pay grade.......

        If I was up to another project, this would be it. I even looked on craigslist and some guy around here has a 2010 police CV with 84k miles for $3500. Add a $10k truck and you'd have a state of the art driver for under $15k.

            Very cool, Hot Rod Garage is pretty good. Can't wait for the next episode where they finish it.

                The new Car Craft magazine (July) has a two part series on this conversion, it has a tiny bit more detail on it. They promise to go into detail on the bed and fuel tank modifications in the next part.

                I've been watching YouTube videos of other conversions other people have been doing, this has been catching on quite a bit. If I didn't have so many other irons in the fire...

                  I hear ya Steve. More time in the day would be perfect. There is a Towncar sitting across from our shop I can have for almost nothing with a great running 4.6 and I have a rust free 59 F3 at home that would be fun to convert. If there was just 48 hours in a day, lol.

                  Going to check out a '65 IH Scout in a couple hours. I secretly hope he wants to much for it. Other wise I'll end up dragging it home for the collection of never ending projects.

                    Why do they always screw up the beds in so called "shop trucks"? A flat bed is essential if you ever need to haul anything bigger than a few grocery bags. Don't think I would have been running it that hard on that road, mountain on one side, cliff on the other.......bigger balls than I have!
                    When you figure in all the new wiring, computers, and suspension components, this low buck swap ends up getting pretty pricey. Guess I'm just too pessimistic, cool truck, but I'd just stuck a bigger motor in it and called it good. Still, if ya got the bucks {unlimited sponsors bucks for advertising}, a pretty neat project.
