Something a little different...former CalTrans surveyor truck, lots of cabinets and you can sleep out of the weather!

Here's my tow rig, 1968 D300 former CDP dealership tow truck with Holmes 440 bed (the 2nd owner sold the boom, dollies and accessories before I got it), setting up for 5th wheel towing, fresh torque monster 440, NP435 and 3.73 D70 w/powr-lok, should be great for towing!

Blue Stocker,
Do you know how much that truck weighs?  Looks can be deceiving,but it looks really heavy.  What was the engine combination you ended up with on that 440?
I need to go take a picture of my dually and post it on here,.....

Hi Keith-
That D300 IS heavy, don't know yet as it's not running, but soon. This is the 440 I may have told you about last month when you were posting your 440 truck engine on MOPARTS.  Nothing really special but because it's in the Custom Cab/Industrial line (D300-600) it's got all that industrial bellhousing, extended 8 bolt crank, including the direct drive weirdo starter, hyd actuated 13" clutch and all the other stuff that goes along with this series of HD '60s trucks. Probably in the 5200 range but it might be a little lighter, but darn little if it is! The 440 is no big deal but has all race-grade machine work, blueprinted sub-assemblies and custom 4-into-1 headers I'm building at this time. Ideally maybe 14+ MPG towing, realistically probably doing good at 9mpg, but...you never know so we'll see!

BTW, PM or email me for the engine specifics, thanks for your interest, much appreciate...wb
