        Unless you have unlimited funds to spend on fuel, I'd be looking for a smaller engine. My dad had a 1974 3/4 ton with the 440 and auto and that sucker would get 8 mpg on a good day going downhill with a tail wind. His had something like a 4.10 rear gear ratio.

      I have a 1978 Dodge Warlock. I've been working on it since i was 12 and now i'm turning 16 in 3 weeks. Been a long process but worth it all.

        it will have a 383 big block 2 wheel drive, drive train. cant figure out what kind of rims to put on it because i want 8 inch front rims and 10 inch back rims with kinda meaty tires not street tires. it will be only for cruising and car shows. i will park it ever winter.
        what would you guys recommend for rims and tires?
