Bank Wires need to be prompt if you are out of the country because they always seem to take longer then expected. Beds not in bad shape at all. The tailgate is one of only two places that the truck has had fresh paint applied. We show you as much feasibly possible via pics. Shows you all the good as well as any bad. The exhaust is sound, the suspension is tight, and the brakes stop straight.
People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers. Cant verify much on the 4x4 stuff, never had it out wheeling but the manual trans feels okay. For starters, I am of the belief that in the face of everything else, Detroit has never really screwed up on trucks. Physically, the 318 and 360 do not really look any different from one another. Sitting for a while, not in running shape. These poor Dodges all seem to have that from the jute padding under the floor mat getting wet and trapping the moisture. I knew where it was sitting and had the guys phone number but then he moved the stuff to a different place i don't know where and i had his cell number.
Thanks, Eric haven't looked at it close yet. The only other area that has had paint work is the bed sides above the chrome strip. No problem helping it to the docks if you are shipping overseas. Yes, it only made 180 factory horsepower, but it would do that for a long, long time. Jim even cut some donuts for us to get some action photos. The front seat is ok.
The truck was originally blue, but got repainted white years ago. We didnt hear any weird noises or clunks while driving it around. We scour the country for vintage cars and trucks like this and we rarely come across one like. Truck will come with 4 matching black wheels and just okay tires. Survivors are getting harder to find! The larger than stock tires fill the wheel wells completely, the fact that it is a short bed is the icing on the cake. That's why it has a proven two-speed transfer case that engages the Dana 44 front end. This shot, taken by Dave Nutting high atop a litter cliff that I was literally concerned he was going to fall off of is probably my favorite of the group.
This is all I know about this beast! Com is displayed with the owners permission Mopar, Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth, Jeep, Eagle, and the Pentastar emblem are registered trademarks of the Chrysler Corporation. Having as much as the original steel on a non restored car these speaks volumes. Jim is technically the second owner of the truck and it is one of a fleet of orange Chrysler products that he owns. The Power Wagon name did, and still does carry a lot of weight with it. Minimal rust under the car, making taking this car apart, almost a breeze!! Just look at the tall 4x4 ground clearance, big step chrome bumper, tow hitch, and roll bar with light package — here's a vintage pickup can easily handle your weekend activities. This was as tough as it got in 1978. This car, youcan seeclearly whatto expect with no surprises and our Feedback speaks for itself! Other options include power steering, power disc brakes, and the rare bed side toolbox.
Proportionally it is 100% dead-nuts, spot on perfect. Dodge is still producing a gnarly pickup with that nomenclature attached to it. You're looking at a cool and rare pickup that has all the features you want in one attention-grabbing package. Good for a hunting truck! If we dont hear from you within 24 hours after auction ends we will contact next in line! The front axle is a Dana 44 and the rear is a 9. Its been used just as a work truck for the last 20 yrs and kinda shows it in places. It Im sure will need some work soon like bushings etc, but as is its driving around ok. This is not a photo of a die-cast model 1978 Dodge W-100 Adventurer Power Wagon.
You have to admits that the truck is as right as rain. Az truck so it makes sense Cab corners and rockers are in great shape. A big truck needs big power under the hood, and this one has a factory-correct 318 cubic-inch V8. The Omaha Orange factory hue is literally jumping off the screen at you. In the course of shooting it we bounced around various parts of the place, climbed hills, and gave the truck a good work out. In 1978, Chrysler was in decline and it would become a terminal situation in the early 1980s when Lee Iacocca came in an riled the joint up, cranked out K-cars, and got the balance sheet right. All of this power can easily be heard thanks to an investment in a newer dual exhaust system that includes glasspacks.
Dash is in fair shape. This 1978 Dodge Power Wagon pickup is a great way to standout in the vintage pickup world without having to give up utility or comfort. We didnt cut the huge hole on the transmission tunnel its how we got the truck Some rust and rot under both front floormats, on both of the front floors prob from the inside out due to the rubber floor mats not horrible, but worth mentioning. I bank with B of A which makes things easy for many out of state for payment. And with this kind of affordability, you know you have to act fast to grab this rare Power Wagon.
