The New 109
The Mercedes powered 88" has been a perfect vehicle for me and never let me down, but it's time to build something a little bigger. Looking to make this truck even more expedition and long-distance capable, it will get a Mercedes 3.0L turbo engine, NP435 4-speed transmission, Ashcroft high-ratio transfer case as well as E-lockers and 30-spline axles. It should easily make 70mph while returning around 25mpg. Starting out as a '67 NADA 2.6 the bulkhead is perfect for this engine conversion. Nothing more than random pictures here but check back from time to time to see how this project progresses.
