Power trip 2: ’49 Dodge Power Wagon
You cannot stop a Power Wagon. They are a man-made tool designed to overcome adversity or come to the aid of its owner. It will take care of you. Like Lassie, only with giant tires and a meaner look. We don’t know exactly if this is true but it makes sense. Dodge built trucks for the military in many versions. Soldiers depended on the trucks ruggedness and dependability. When they returned, they demanded to have a civilian version and Dodge, not wishing to miss an opportunity, gave them the Power Wagon. Today’s restored Power Wagon is an update on the old theme. The powertrain has been updated to Mopar 318 cubic inch V8 with headers and a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It has an automatic transmission too. The interior has a groovy flair with paisley trim, leather trimmed lever handles and industrial carpeting. The exterior paint is probably better than new and the gaps and panel fit looks good. The seller is looking for a stout $35,900. Click here for the listing.
