Bottom line:
Power Wagon & Fuel Economy really don't belong in the same sentence :lol:

I have a 69 Short Box 4x4 W100? 318 4 speed 4-11 gears stock 2 barrel I really dont know the exact GPM out of it but I have driven it back and forth cross country several times and it never let me down I wasn't pushing it really hard or fast but I can assure all of you I was getting a lot better than 10mpg out of it.

I need to restore it but it still runs and drives and has a little rust, really need a set of tires on it right now. I really wanna restore it but I have no idea when I will get the time I have so many projects ahead of it right now and My health isnt what it used to be.

the engine has an Original Forged Crank with a set of forged full floating pistons in it, Clevite 77 bearings and Chrome rings the heads are off a Plymouth 73 318 and should have been rebuilt but they came off a good running engine so I cleaned them up and put new seals on the valves and reran them. I did have a fresh set of 360 heads on it till My kid floated the valves and I had to pull the heads for a bent valve. It didn't hurt the piston but did bend a valve. any way it runs again with the 318 heads just not as good as it did with the 360 heads on it. I would like to find a set of 67-70 318 318 heads for it It has stock cast iron exhaust manifolds and dual exhaust.

It has a Closed Knuckle Danna 44 in front Geared transfer case and a 8 3/4 rear end 410 gears fron and rear it could use either lockers or Sure grip carriers in both axles always been a wish for the rig.

If any one has Pieces parts I am looking for I would be interested not to many Old Short boxs around.

Also looking for HP BB 440 and 400 engine parts

My W200 crew has a fresh Magnum 5.2, with sequential injection, a518 with OD and lock up, with 4.10 gears. Does the same as my 71 with a worn 400, a727, and 3.73 gears. 10 mpg.

Only thing I have seen where anyone was doing drastically different was with a diesel swap.
