    Crew cab located on an abandoned farm in ID.
    Hudson was found on property I purchased. Kind of sealed the deal actually. Was hoping to find an abandoned car on the property and will be adding more.

    Mid 60’s propane truck.

    I’m guessing a 366. Some kind of gizmo so it could run on propane.

    Did they make a big block a 366? I thought the only small one was the 348 when it first came out.

    Tall deck truck engine. Made in 366, 427, 454 and 502 ci displacements. 366 and 427 being the widest used. Very similar to the light duty big block common in pick ups and cars. Shared many parts.

    looks like a 2 stage pressure regulator instead of a carb - to run on propane.
