1958 Dodge Power Wagon with Cummins Turbo Diesel
A short video clip of the 1958 Dodge Power Wagon built by my father and I
with a 1993 12 valve Cummins diesel (stock, for now). It has the Getrag
G360 transmission, Dana 80 rear, and the Spicer 70 front axle.
Classics revealed: The 1963 Dodge Power Wagon one ton pick-up still at work
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The classic 1963 Dodge Power Wagon is a classic
one ton pick-up that could and still does go anywhere. It was built on a
military frame designed for the second world war and sold In America until
the seventies. Today this classic American pick-up will still haul your
stuff to the most remote places on this earth.
1940 Dodge 3 ton truck WW2
Some old footage from 2000 showing the Dodge's six cylinder engine fired
up. It was leaking a little oil, the tyres were all soft, and the fuel and
ignition were jury-rigged together to make it all work. The footage isn't
the best as it was lifted from a 10-year old VHS tape, transferred to DVD,
converted, then edited into an mpeg file.
This 3 ton truck has been off the road since the mid 1950s. I'm always
looking for spare parts for the "big" engine - 331 cu in - so if you can
help, please get in touch. I also need a spare wheel - 10 stud, 20"
diameter, by Budd, split rim.

Footage of the truck's engine running in 2011, for the first time since a
comprehensive overhaul, can now be seen on this later video:
