You might also try www.binderbulletin.org. There are a lot of Scout and pickup people over there, but someone might be able to help out. :)

Since your truck has no power package currently, do you have any idea at this time as to what you are going to put in your truck?

A lot of those trucks had the Cummins 220/262 with 10-speed Road Rangers. Later, a lot of those trucks had the Cummins 335/350 with 10-speed Road Rangers.

I have seen a few with the Detroit 6-71 with 13- or 15-speed Road Rangers.

Some of the early ones had the IHC RD450/501.

Even if the RD was correct, if you ever plan to use your truck for anything other than a show piece, I would suggest the diesel power option is a better choice.

Just my two cents worth.

post-15061-1202168703_thumb.jpgpost-15061-1202168726_thumb.jpg im pretty sure the truck came with a 220 from 64, i passed on a 335 and 13 speed that would have come with, instead opted for a power steer axle unit from a transtar and other misc crap, but im unsure what i plan on, im so happy to have found such a good specimen, and im not planning on working it at this point and if i do it would local use to where i could be home daily, but who knows, thanks for the replys, i was wondering when id get more!

If you have a choice of power packages I would lean towards not so correct and go with a big cam Cummins or a Detroit.

I say that only because finding someone who really knows small cam Cummins is getting to be just about as hard to find as finding someone who really knows 2-cycle DD's.

your right about that, but unfortunately im a diesel mech by trade, so i dont mind getting my hands a little dirty, but i dont wanna do any major modifications to the truck to get it to fit, def dont wanna raise the cab, the white one pictured now has a big cam 400 and it fit with only minor changes, but i have so much to do to this thing im unsure, first i have to get it home, its still a state away

Regarding your request for help decoding the VIN, I can say that there is little to be determined from the VIN other than to use it to order a lineset ticket which would list the components your truck was built with. What is the VIN of your truck and was it built in Emeryville or Fort Wayne? I don't think any of the linesets of DCOs built at Emeryville were microfilmed, but the Fort Wayne ones were. Send me the VIN and I'll see what exists.

i think it would have been made in san leandro? no from what i have learned in 63 the emeryville facility was done? and im pretty sure cali was the only 2 plants to produce aluminum for 64 and 65 model 80 inch sleepers? i think the only 2 years a aluminum cab 80 incher was made , so im pretty confused to that, but i did read a black and whit article stating production moving to leandro in 63? THANKS ALOT FOR ALL THE REPLIES AND HELPFULL, AND INTERESTED PEOPLE!!!!

ANY IDEA WHERE I CAN FIND A PLACE WITH THE MICRO FILM WITH PART NUMBERS, I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE TWO PLACES TEXAS AND CHICAGO WHERE SURPLUS, NOS PARTS WERE PUT, AND THAT THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE IF YOU HAVE PART NUMBERS, ANY TRUTH TO THAT, I NEED A PASS DOOR HANDLE ETC....
