One Ton Cummins

Well here we go. To make a long story short this truck started out as building a combo of two trucks. The chassis of a rolled 72' GMC and a 69' C30. Now it is the combo of 4 trucks and 3 different makes of parts! FORD, DODGE and Chevy/GMC! I made the decision to do a Cummins built truck after a customer had stopped by my shop in his k5 blazer he had swapped a Cummins into. It'll be more useful to what I do and what not. A good friend of mine is doing all the frame fab work. Once it's together and running I will finish what's needed then blow it back apart and powder coat everything.

Here's a list of parts and pieces that are making up the build so far.

1979 Ford Kingpin dana 60 front axle. HARD TO FIND!!
Dana 80 dually rear axle
1972 C30 Motorhome Chassis (cut 20 inches or so out and boxed)
1994 Dodge 12 Valve cummins (donated its life)
Last but not least the 1969 C30 Cab and clip with a GMC grill

Stay tuned!

Re: One Ton Cummins

More pictures. This timeline is over a few months/years. Things seem a little choppy but now I have all the major parts I need. I am also doing a frame off resto on a 69' C10 short bed at the same time. There will be some major progress in the next few weeks though.

Re: One Ton Cummins

Awesome! I’m in to see this come together. I’ve been wanting to 12 valve swap my K20 for years but finding the right donor truck at a good price is almost impossible any more it seems.
