I will admit, I want one something fierce...it'd be cool to drive what looks like an old f100 but not have to pay the markup on " classic " parts....although I guess that might be offset by potential labor cost for non-standard locations on certain things.

Yep, I have a friend that done that with a LWB Ranger, his is a 1955. He used a 351 H.O. with a C6 tranny. He didn't like the sharktooth grill on 55 so he switched it to the 56 instead.
