1965 GMC Ambulance

My real name is Tim and I have aquired a 1965 GMC box ambulance (see pix), that I plan to rebuild with a larger engine and drive train. It currently has a 305 V6 and I'm wanting to install a larger motor, auto trans and dual wheels on the back. Once I get the wrenching done, I'm going to paint it Black where the red is and orange where the white is and use it to haul my 05' Harley Electraglide. It will be used as a camper also. This is a very cool truck from Oregon with very little surface rust so I'm starting out on a good note. If anyone knows the wheelbase of a dually GMC/crew, I have one I'm looking at on another site, but am having trouble getting the actual wheelbase dimensions. My 65' has a 133'' base. I've gotten some pretty "Are you CRAZY" comments, but in the end it will be the talk of the town, I hope. Any help is very much appreciated, for this is my first restore.

Welcome. That is a bodacious project and I'd much prefer seeing that any day over a belly-button $$$$$$$$$$ '32 Ford, '65 'Stang, '57 Chevy, etc., ad nasuseum. Start a Journal and keep us up to speed on your progress.
