Albert went a totally different way with his FC-170.  Interior cab temperatures surely won't be a problem with his drivetrain configuration.  He runs Chevy Blazer axles. A Chevy 350 V8 backed by a 700R Transmission power the vehicle.  It is set up as a 2-wheel drive truck at this time.  He spent many hours smoothing the body out before the black paint was applied.  Most body seams were filled and the grille opening was also sealed.  Vintage Air keeps cab temperatures cool in the Arizona sun.  The links below highlight some of the unique features of this truck.
