And judging from the angle of the lower frame rails I'd say they didn't do much, if anything to the front end other than the rim and fender. They even retained the stock brakes on this one. Be a nice winter project and I would think that a reasonable facsimile could be built for substantially less than it would sell for if the MoCo produced it.

Hmmmm.... those pics are going in my "inspiration folder" for sure!

The tank appears to be a 1990s vintage STORZ aluminum "road race" fuel tank.

I had one. Nice tank.
