1978 Dodge Power Wagon (plow truck)

Bids & Comments 4x4ClassicDodgeRam

TFL’s Take: A plow truck is not something you see everyday come up for auction, especially in this condition. The 318CI V8 with Carter 2-barrel carburetor was good for 140-hp when new and put the power in Power Wagon for its time. As befitting a 1/2-ton work truck it rides on leaf springs both rear AND front. For a hard-working plow truck it gets the job done and looks great doing it.
