That looks like the 50" BBC option. makes you wonder where the intake pipe was mounted, as most Petes had them going down inside the cab ??

...not too sure that they made any shorter than the 50" option...the cab rear wall goes around behind the exhaust, but this'n may've been a special build ?.

The brochure is for a different truck!

The Green GM has a 28" bumper to axle dimension and the brochure has a 50" dimension.

Additionally the lower truck you enter from in front of the wheel whilst the green truck you climb in like a monkey or KW driver.

At least you would not need a centre bearing on the tailshaft!

Many years ago, at the "Fridge' swapmeet at Ballarat, a would-be hotrodder was trying to sell a Morris "J" van that he had put a Jaguar six and auto into. He said the tailshaft was one-and-a-half inches long.

If I had had any money at the time, I would have bought it and sold off the Jaguar bits. I already had enough parking troubles at the time as I was living in a flat with a single-car garage and had three cars.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
