I'm sitting here brain storming what would be a proper engine for a truck like that and all I can think about is something with a big noisy cam. :yes:

That aside, I think a Boss Nine aka 429 Boss would be proper!

Jon Kaase Custom Built Boss Nine Engines.

jonkaaseboss429
From Street to Strip, Muscle car, Show car, Street rods to full out Racing applications, Jon Kaase Racing Engines INC. are producing Boss Nine replica engines custom tailored for your application. Now you can have the Boss 429 you always wanted in a complete ready to bolt in package! Engines available from 500 to 1000 Horsepower and up to 1500 Horsepower when Blown.

boss500

The Boss 429 was available as a NASCAR homologation special in 1969-70 Mustangs (and two special Cougars) and the Ford faithful have been lusting for the Blue Crescent/Shotgun engines ever since. While others dreamed, the die-hard Ford junkies at Jon Kaase Racing Engines worked, and brought the Boss 429 back to life on its 40thanniversary.

Kaase’s modern Boss Nine combination is based on a high-nodular cast iron cylinder block that can accommodate 429, 460, 521, or 600 cubic inches and output extends from 500 to 1,000 streetable horsepower. Kaase allows that displacement beyond 521 cubic inches include a race-oriented cylinder block equipped with 4-bolt main bearing caps.

The 10.30-inch deck height block receives a cast crankshaft in the 460ci version (600hp). Engines with 521ci and beyond are founded on a 4340 steel crankshaft joined with 4340 forged connecting rods and Diamond forged pistons. For complicity with pump gas, the compression ratio is usually limited to 11.0:1 or less. Kaase caps the short-block with new aluminum cylinder heads fitted with stainless steel swirl-polish 2.30-inch intake and 1.90-inch exhaust valves activated by WW Engineering 1.75:1 aluminum roller rocker arms.

Though the rather large round intake, D-shaped exhaust ports, and marginal cam specs of the original 429 hampered low-speed response, the multiple cam phasing applied to Kaase’s Boss Nine engines has completely eliminated this problem. Customers also have the option of a hydraulic or solid roller camshaft. Bear in mind that the 521ci version produces approximately 770 horsepower and 730 foot-pounds of torque with a hydraulic roller cam. Boss Nine engines are fitted with a single-plane intake manifold for a 4150 or 4500 style carburetor.

Imagine a Boss Nine singing beneath the bonnet of your street rod, rat rod, or 54 Merc. The reaction of the on lookers would be priceless.

The New Boss Nine engines can be built with a 4150 or 4500 series carburetor, Stack Injection, Blown or EFI conversion.

Pricing starts at $22,900 for a Dyno Tested  ready to bolt in Kaase Boss Engine.

Options:

  • After-market Aluminum cylinder block
  • Forged or Billet crankshaft
  • Hydraulic Roller or Full Roller camshaft
  • Billet Timing Pointer
  • Billet Specialties Front Drive
  • Large bore cylinders (requires aftermarket block)
  • Front sump oil pump and Front sump oil pan
  • Electric water pump
  • Upgraded steel rods
  • Powder coated valve covers, Intake and associated parts
  • Danny Bee belt drive
  • Cometic head gaskets
  • H.F. piston rings
  • Titanium valves
  • Titanium Retainers
  • 4500 series Intake and carburetor
  • ATI balancer
  • Compression Ratios from 8.0 to 14.5
  • Stack Injection, Blower, and EFI induction

Dang, I thought I saw it for sale and thought about checking with you on it then forgot.  I miss my old Inline truck and would love to have another down the road.  Nothing beats a good beater truck that you literally have to do NOTHING to it to keep it going.  Good luck with whatever you end up doing with this one tho, I love the older style alot so it should be sweet no matter what you do.
