1958 Dodge Powerwagon

        

 

                  

                   A  while back,  found a friend a  Power Wagon.  

                    I  joined in the fun and bought one.  It had led 

                    a cushy life , on a west coast naval yard,  till it

                    out lived its usefulness and was sold as surplus.

                    In short order,  found a complete 4WD front  to

                    rear 06 Dodge Mega Cab chassis with 26k miles.

                   

 

  

 

     
 First order of business was to shorten chassis from 165" to 123".              .

               We bought  stamped bed sides and rear fenders

                from  Matt Tisdale while buying the bulk head,

                tailgate and fenders for the bed from Village 

                Power Wagon,  who also supplied  OEM  and         

                reproduction parts for "D" body civilian Wagons.
