Very impressive work!  Great choice to convert to  a 4x4. When I redo my frame, I will incorporate your upgrades.

Got the stance set where I want it, or actually where it had to be to make everything fit, just a mock up to see how it'll look:

Outstanding work! You're making me want to get another 60 to build like that as a companion to my jacked up 4x4 Flareside!

So I used a Mobius block, but switched the transmission and oil pan to the proper parts from Fireball, then added heads, intake and valve covers from AMT's '60 Starliner. Those old pickups had a single exhaust with a front crossover so I had to make that, and I used a clear red sprue, plus some styrene scraps cut into flange shapes and some tiny plastic railroad nuts and bolts, so here that is so far, of course much finishing is still required but it's starting to look like a vintage truck engine: (I know that it's not really accurate, but I'm happy with it)

Engine looks great. The colors are correct for '59 thru '64, black block with reddish orangey  valve covers. Granny  speed behind a 292 in 4 low will plow up any hill.

Super impressive detailing!  You went above and beyond of what this kit was originally. I appreciate all the extra  engine, drive train  and body work that went into  this one.

Very Nice Build!! Looks real! Who are the tires and wheels from?

They appear to be the ones that come with the basic Fireball Modelworks F250 conversion kit.

Fireball Modelworks, F-250 conversion for the Mobius 1970. I'm just 10 years earlier!
