Alright I know this truck does not have alot of potential without significant investment But... There is an element of cool. 12V71..I know old tech, fuel pig but the sound and that long hood. I have an MP3 of one running (no idea how to post it) I can't help but be eccentric.

With ya on this one Mase, definitely an element of cool with this setup. 'Course, it would take a bit of work to achieve the result, but hey, a 12V71 at full song is something no one should go thru life without hearing at least once, much less being behind the wheel!

Can't argue with that. I used to get the doors blown off my 8V71 Mack by a guy with a 12V71 in an Astro. Never drove one myself but I did drive a GMC with a V12 gas engine. Two of those V6 blocks together. What a treat to set up those two distributers.
