About Dodge Power Wagon
Some vehicles are able to transcend the trends that come with each model year. The Dodge Power Wagon is one such truck because it is so useful and classically styled. The predecessor to the now ubiquitous Ram, the Power Wagon is Dodge's answer to Chevy and Ford's full-size pickups of yesteryear — 1945 to 1980 to be exact. It is equipped with a number of engines, depending on the year, but the 318 V8 is by far the most vaunted. It packs enough punch to pull and carry very heavy loads. The frame and body are rugged, hefty, and truly made for work. This is the type of truck one pictures living on a cattle ranch. Indeed, the Power Wagon is so hearty, it lives on — fully-functional on many farms and ranches. Conversely, it is also beloved by collectors, and many near-mint or fully restored models abound. Of late, the Dodge Power Wagon has made a comeback, beginning in 2005 and becoming an official Ram Truck model in 2013. The truck carries on the legacy of power and utilitarian versatility. Many models can be found through the vast inventory on eBay.
