Dodge had a concept truck at Sema called the lowliner. Used a 68 D-200 with a boxed frame, air ride, 5.9 Cummins with manual 6sp transmission and leather interior.

That's the one. I always wanted to do that with a 50's style truck with modern drive train and pull a old Silver Streak with modern interior remodel. One drawback is it would take two 50's style trucks to build a crew cab.

The tilting hood on that concept negates the really cool hood function those trucks had. They would open like a normal hood, but, if you pushed harder once it hit the "stop", it would release and open further ending up at a 90 degree vertical position. You could pull an engine without removing the hood!

Brother drives a '48 Chevy carryall, (Before they adopted the name "Suburban", everyday the weather is nice. Going camping he uses it to tow his 1940 Vaughn travel trailer. Yes, it's cool.

Being contrarian, I’m not a fan at all of lowered trucks, particularly a diesel. Now if they stuffed the engine out of a hellcat in it...

It has adjustable height airbag suspension. I don't care for lowered vehicles as well. If it could be lowered to have access to the bed then raised to a normal height I could see the advantages.

OMG, that truck just gave me a ______ (not heartattack a hard___)!
Simply stunning!
When/if I resto mod a 2 wheeler, it's getting slammed and the big plain steelie wheels.
