If by proper you mean period correct well then no. As a modernized restoration why not.

I've seen a blog following an L-700 restoration that is repowering the truck with a Cummins out of a Dodge pickup, so I see no reason a V10 is not a reasonable alternative. The L700 was available with a 470 cid diesel so I would think a V10 could be squeezed in there.

DO IT!!! Chop the top, lower that sucker into the weeds, power it with the V-10/T-56 combo, put low pro tires under it and run with it! Build it for you and the sky is the limit! you might be able to use the wheels and tires out of an old Ford F-350 kit...

Are you planning on dragging a trailer with it? If you lower it, it may pair nicely with a Galaxy 38' gooseneck... Just throwing out ideas... Whatever you do, we'd definitely like to see pictures of it.

You might be starting a trend here... After that why not a Ford C-cab with a supercharged 5.4 from a Shelby GT500? :D

Okay bringing this one backup. I have started the dodge viper engine and I am working on the frame for the Coe. I will be trying to post some pictures of the cab to get some ideas on how to chop the top. That's all for now
