Why not go a modern Turbo Diesel engine and have the best of both worlds. Old school looks and modern grunt?

Many many moons ago (20ish years) I stumbled across this in the deserts in the outskirts of Flagstaff, Arizona. From memory he was adding a Supercharger.

Excuse the quality it's a photo of a 20year old photo.

I once knew a guy who had one of these bolted onto a 350 Chev in his HQ SS. The belt noise was amazing!

Ever since seeing a Model A 4x4 hot rodded tray back truck on Fraser  once, and having kids I reckoned a 4x4 dual cab version would be cool .
But done in an aged / weathered condition along the lines of this O'l girl .
