1963 Dodge Power WagonReview
This Was A Line Of Trucks Chrysler Should Be Proud Of — Once again a classic almost impossible to destroy American Car. Not a truck designed for speed, this thing with the 225 Slant Six, has enough low end torque to pull just about anything you ever wanted to. Gas mileage again not that great but its a 46 year old truck. Engine parts are fairly easy to come by if you know where to look. Body parts and trim are a lot harder to find. As far as fun to drive if you like going out to parts of the country that most Jeeps, trucks and even the Humvee would back down from than this is the type of truck for you. In three years of owner ship i was never the one stuck, i was the one pulling everyone else out.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Very unique, tough extremely well built dependable truck
Cons: If you want flashy, fast, top exceleration this is not the vehicle for you

It still is a great truck, with only 114,00 miles on its Poly 318. It has never left me walking. The factory stretched frame has made the traction great. The 8 foot bed can hold lots of tools and now... Read More

An Origional Piece Of Work. Some Parts Very Hard To Find.

I Use This Rig For Hauling, Camping, Hunting. It's Not An Economy Ride.
I have owned this rig for over 20 years. The only things I don't like are the turning radius and fuel economy. Since the restoration the ride has improved a lot. It has great visibility and legroom in... Read More
