Kind of hard to make a suggestion when we do not know what engine is in the truck you have. Assuming it is a 440, I think they are 440-3 engines and I am not sure they were used in cars. They are a truck industrial engine. I am sure some of the more knowledgeable Dodge guys will jump in on this one and make suggestions but meanwhile you might want to verify the engine size.

Yep, Dodge 440-3 on either a M400, M500, or M600 Dodge Motorhome chassis.  I believe the Cruise Air was to big for the M300 chassis.
