Old school trucks with new school power plant?

So, ive been a Dodge guy for many years. Ive always loved the looks of the 70's and early 80's rams. Although they had some pretty tough motors back in the day, for MANY years ive wanted to build an old school ram with a hemi. 4x4, Lifted a little, 35" tires, 4.10 gears, maybe the 20" oem dodge wheels. Anyone already built something like this??

Like your idea . Always wanted to see a professionally done RestoMod Dodge Warlock or Dodge Lil'RedTruck...
---------------------------------
I did a search...and found one...but it is sold...www.streetsideclassics.com in Charlotte, NC. It is an orange 1977 Warlock with a 5.7 Hemi and lots of goodies.
Take a look - it may give you some ideas!

How about something a little older, like a 1946 Power Wagon?

Still love the Power Wagons! I was thinking of getting one before I decided on my Limited with all the bells and whistles.

Early iron with a hemi is cool in my book.
