FULLY RESTORED, 231 INLINE-6, 4SPD MANUAL TRANS, PWR STEER, RUNS/DRIVES GR8, WOW
This truck is an intoxicating mix of vintage with just the right upgrades. So it's hard not to enjoy this well-presented 1956 Dodge Power Wagon no matter if you're taking it to a car show or enjoying it for the true tough 4x4 it is.
These were born out of the military-grade trucks, and so it just seems fitting to paint this one in dark green. Of course, the gloss and shine radiating from this truck also instantly tells you someone made a big investment in this Dodge. It combines with the high-gloss black to highlight the beefy lines on the industrial-strength grille, big fenders, steel running boards, and a bed that's ribbed for strength. It's everything you love about this distinct and iconically tough-as-nails truck. And this attention to detail is something you'll also love as you spot everything from the Power Wagon badging to the dark and glossy lumber in the real-wood truck bed. So this is a pickup that's ready for the car show. In fact, you're going to probably attract a crowd, because a true Power Wagon is always a rare sight. They made less than 2,800 in '56, and how many do you think were able to survive the daily grind for over six decades and still look this good? But a truck like this has so much more potential than just a head-turner. It has the correct Braden MU2-R winch, industrial-strength tow hook in the rear, tall 4x4 stance, and upgraded 15-inch beadlock wheels. So yes, this classic Power Wagon still knows how to lead the way over all terrains.
Inside, vintage truck simplicity is met with fresh upgrades. So you get tall and airy cab with easy to read gauges, a strong heater, and a ribbed three-spoke steering wheel that provides that classic old-school grip. While luxury was not the aim for the original Power Wagons, the upgrade to diamond plating on the floors, a fresh leather seat, and matching leather headliner makes this one feel premium without jeopardizing the vintage atmosphere.
Under the hood is more industrial toughness. The 231 cubic-inch inline-six motor has been in production for decades. In fact, this flathead motor is part of the history that was in use when these Dodges helped win WWII. It's a true torque king, and you control it all with the ease of the four-speed manual transmission. So it's exactly what you want in a go-anywhere 4x4. Of course, as you inspect the undercharge photos, it looks like you'd be the first one to get it muddy since its detailed restoration. In fact, there have been some great upgrades to this Power Wagon to make it easier to enjoy on the streets, like power steering and front disc brakes. And while the Nitto Trail Grappler tires are awesome off-road, they also provide far more comfort on the pavement then the skinny stock tires.
So this is the rare and distinct truck that has been given all the right investments to make it better on and off-road. If you've been looking for an old-school truck that sits above the rest, this literally is your ideal vintage ride. Call now!
