You need this in your life.
We’re sure plenty of you are familiar with the old Dodge Power Wagons. In fact, they’re really not all that hard to find if you’re looking for an old school truck restoration project. But then we found this brilliant piece of restomod awesomeness during one of our never-ending eBay Motors searches. What you’re looking at was once a regular 1949 Dodge Power Wagon. In 2012, however, it was handed over to Legacy Trucks, a vintage and classic truck restoration/ customization shop based out of Idaho.
Aside from installing a full coil-over suspension, disc brakes, locking differentials, crossover steering, dual circuit, and power brakes, there’s a fuel-injected 6.2-liter LS3 V8 under with the hood. Yes, a Corvette engine that makes 480 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. And just to make this thing sound serious, a 3" dual exhaust was added. Inside is described as minimalist but comfortable, equipped with Corbeau racing seats, an internal roll cage, and a rubber floor. The seller claims it’s easy to own and there’s been no mechanical or electric issues. In fact, it just completed a road trip from Los Angeles to Jackson Hole, Wyoming without a hitch. Well, there is one hitch, and that’s the price: $79,000.
