Roots in the military: ’79 Dodge Power Wagon
From 1961 to 1971 these Dodge trucks were called the “sweptline,” then transitioned to a more modern body image from 1972 through 1980 with varied grilles and paint schemes. In 1975 the 4-wheel drive became full-time with a 2-speed transfer case; this was changed back to part-time 4-wheel drive in 1980 due to the energy crisis. A huge boost in sales followed the 1974 release of the extended “Club Cab,” popular with families and camper towing. But these fully decked-out Power Wagons are pretty neat indeed. This 1979 Dodge Power Wagon (short-Bed) has lived in dry Texas since new. The truck was recently bought from the original owner. It is a original survivor truck with only 74,XXX original miles. It is pretty well equipped and has a winch up front too. These are really rugged and neat looking trucks and this one looks to be in pretty good condition. We sort of like the campy huge graphics declaring that this isn’t any ordinary pick-up truck. Read more at the eBay auction by clicking here.
