I don't know Mopar stuff, but medium duty GM trucks of the era had "industrial" engines with forged cranks, heavy 4-ring pistons, specific (low flow) heads, intake manifolds and cooling arrangements... all designed for low RPM/high torque applications and virtually useless in a performance build.

I'd expect your 318 to be similar, given the application... I-R-POPS? MercuryMac?
