Cheers or Jeers: Cummins Powered 1959 Dodge Power Wagon

Up for sale is a 1959 Dodge Power Wagon, this model is called a Power Giant. The Power Giant was only produced from 57 to 60. This truck has a Cummins diesel 4bt conversion done on it. It has hydro boost 4 wheel disc brakes. It really drives and stops well. It has a dana locker in the rear and Auburn limited slip in the front, rear axle is a dana 60 and small knuckle dana 44 in front, 3.54 gears and the truck has a ford ZF 5 speed overdrive transmission. The truck runs great and gets 23 miles per gallon. The truck has been done a few years and is a driver so its not perfect. It has normal chips and scratches from driving. It has a Reese hitch and you can use this truck to pull whatever you want. It is really fun to drive and has plenty of power. The bed has been Rhino lined. It has a nice wiring harness and has been completely re-wired. The interior is all nice and has a Sony CD player. This is also one that you can fly in and drive home. Its had 11500 miles put on it since it was restored.

Was going to go CHEERS, but then looked at the whole add and all 60+ pictures and to me the amount of rust on the underbody, the large amount of leaking seals from diff's, driveline, tranny to engine and what looks like modern disc brakes makes me really wonder how much of a restoration was done versus a shack and back clean up to get it to look nice and sell it for a profit.

I love the look and package, but the pictures raise to many questions for me.

JEERS!

Looks great to me, I don't see any rust worth mentioning.

From an East Coast perspective the underbody is excellent.

I love this sort of project updating a classic rig with modern gear.

Cheers.
