This 70-Year-Old Dodge Power Wagon Now Produces More Than 600 HP

Among the most different types of tuning, restomods always stand out - when retro cars get back their look and receive more power. This Dodge Power Wagon is a prime example of this principle.

The Dodge Power Wagon is a pickup truck that was produced back in 1949 and was on based on the military Dodge WC. Its passability, load capacity and unpretentiousness made this car very popular. However, these pickups gradually began to go off the scene due to the age.

But Wyoming-based Legacy Classic Trucks took the initiative. The company’s employees turn old Power Wagons into modern and very powerful restomods. At the moment, the company has already successfully restored 108 such pickups, and their small number is compensated by a quite solid price. This SUV will not cost you less than $350,000.

Although these restomods are worth every cent invested in them. To begin with, it is worth saying that the original Power Wagon retains only the design in each case. Everything else — suspensions, axles, driveshafts, transfer cases, differential locks- is completely new, as well as a transmission. You can choose a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission.

A Warn winch is also included in the package of improvements. Monstrous 40-inch Toyo tires draw all attention. Looking at this car, you immediately know that you can go anywhere. The interior also looks remarkable. It is made in the style of classic cars with leather seats and a wooden steering wheel. But at the same time, the car features a stereo system and a USB port.

But, of course, the main feature of the Dodge Power Wagon is its engine. Here, the buyer also has a choice. Even a standard version, namely a 3.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel unit, is able to produce 350 hp. However, the company can install a 6.2-liter 430-hp Chevrolet LS3 V8 engine, which can develop incredible 620 hp with an additional supercharger.
