The little 6.2 Detroit? Not a powerhouse but it's easy on fuel. That's a good trade. Truck looks nice.

.... ...... well, to any gearhead.... same scenario as a snocat, I guess.... it certainly deters the masses , in such a circumstance.... lowers the price,.. ( except tuckers..lol),... and opens up the possibilities,.... like,...'' well it needed something to update/modify/ improve, etc... because it was missing something....'' or....''well, half the work has already been started or done...'' . ( in all reality; I like to revive old iron... )......
