Looks great, and it is yours so polish away. Which engine are you using, 377, 401, or 402? If my memory is correct the 377 used an oil cooler and the double fan belts?

It's the 401. It has the dual belts and an  oil cooler in the filter housing. It has a provision for coolant to pass around the housing. 

I like to add the details to make it look like I've actually done something. 😁

good work, I am sure you will enjoy the finished product

I can't wait to get it on the road, it will be a totally different experience than what I'm used to.

Wow..........I get SOOOO envious of guys that have trucks restored like this.    Not that I would want to have to take care of it after, but sure do like them all shiny and new.  All of which mine will NEVER be.

willy, I am restoring a BM with rubber spring mounting pads similar to the front ones on your truck. I would like to know a source for these mounting pads if you were able to find any new ones.  Thank you in advance

What an incredibly sanitary build! I'm looking forward to seeing it completed.

Me too actually. 😁
