Tom, I read on ALLPAR, /6 engines were pretty much turqoise or orange, although they do mention yellow. It does say industrial or military though. My '71 was a 3/4 ton, with the 4sp/creeper, and it also had a 12 inch clutch. It also had what appeared to be a 4 inch diameter driveshaft that was 1 piece with no carrier bearing.

I have pictures of '65 D100 CSS with slant six and engine color is yellow.
Does D200 crew cab have one or two piece driveshaft? I can't find any pictures how it is made.

Check out this link for information on Dodge CSS pickups.

It seems that D100 and D200 have had one and two piece driveshafts. D200 crew cab is so long It must have two piece.

That truck looks AMAZING!! My neighbor had one of these when I was a kid,ugly yellow paint, with the yellow slant six,4 speed, 4X4 with a stepside bed. He passed away and the kids sold the farm. Truck is still sittng behind the house rusting away. I'm hoping to buy it off the new owners.

Some progress has happened. Brake lines and steering parts has been installed in the engine compartment.
Next tires, engine, radiator and battery. Radiator needs some correcting because it was originally in wrong position and must be flipped around.

Crew cab has tires and brake lines now.
Engine, battery and radiator are still under construction. Hope to get them ready soon.

Small update. Engine needs upper and lower waterhoses but I don't have any suitable 1.5mm rubber tube. Any suggestion where to find it? A radiator cap in needed too.
My model master chrysler engine blue enamel has dried in bottle somehow and I had to order more from ebay/USA. It 's impossible to find it in Finland.

Engine is looking fantastic.
The whole truck is looking Fantastic.
For Radiator hose, check out your local autoparts store for electrical wiring.

Great work on it.

Drive shaft is nearly ready but missing paint and carrier bearing. I made working universal joints to make it easier to install. Exhaust pipe is next job.
