    The frame has to be modified. The axle mounts are 26 mm spaced and the chassis mounts are 18 mm. I cut off the chassis " tube " and used a piece of Evergreen .080 rod cut to 26 mm and centered it on the chassis. Cut the axle torque arms off and added them to the rod ends. The fix took about 20 minutes.

    The 6 torque is close to the 318 and with a 4 speed and a 2 speed rear, the truck move pretty well in the city. Paul

    I do believe at one time he did in the early 70's. I know he used to try to race with thre "Big Boys" on North Conduit and on Crossbay Blvd. Paul

    This is the Lindberg Dodge. The chassis is stretched and the Polar lights Slant 6 is installed. The chassis and engine are fully plumbed. The body is a shortened Ford delievery truck body. Alloy wheels and home made decals. Paul

    I believe the the Alaskan hauler is how the rig is set up, not any particular model. The main mods are the moose bar and the propane system. So any diesel available could have been installed by K.W. , trannies are again a matter of choice..bbut remember that speeds were generally in the 10 to 35 mph range. As for axles the weight and number are up to builder. Hope this helps. Paul

    I don't think he ever slept....compared to the time frame of this truck (!1969 /72) the new Ice truckers have it easy.Trip times for these early trucks was much longer. Sometimes days, if the ice held. They had support trucks ,snow plows plus with them. Most rides with door opened for quick bail out. Paul

    All of the weathering is done with Tamiya acrylic paints,made in to washes(85 /90 % Alcohol thinner) Air brushed on. Than sealed with Testers Acryl Flat clear, dusted on from about 12 inches with low air pressure. That gives it the "icy - frost" look. Paul
