    I would guess mid 60's. Looks like that one is fully restored and worth a lot. I'm sure it could handle a V, but why would you want to plow with it?

    My father just did a frame off restoration (minus the bed) and his is a 1950. So I would say it is around that year. His has a plow that he is currently in the process of restoring as well. The plow only has power up and down, no power angle. I am trying to find a picture to post, but I don't seem to have any on this computer.

    I love that style of old power wagon, I would love to restore one someday, but it wouldn't be for plowing!

    I would say thats a model WM. Dodge made that truck from 1946 to 1968. It was made up until 1971 but the last three years they were made it was for export only. There are a few websites for early Power Wagons. A truck like that would be big money. If you want an old Dodge to mess around with look for the military version, an M37. Theres a bunch of them out there and you can get one for a decent price. Every now and then you find them for sale on the GSA auction site. The feds still have them floating around in departments like Forestry and BLM. They have the big ass flathead 6 in them.

    I will do that...most likely when the snow melts off of it. I wanted to take pics of the interior of the power wagon, however the snow on the windshield gives off too much reflection. Shifter in it is one of those old long throws....comes up to your neck in the cab....lol
    I wouldn't put a plow on it either......just kidding about that. These classics just sit there. never have seen anyone around......just a garage, no house. I would like to meet the owner and find out some info.

    Please don't buy that and put a plow on it. I hate it when I see old iron rusting away when it doesn't have to. Like other guys said it probably wouldn't make a good plow truck anyway lacking comfort, radio,cup holder, decent heat......

    I most likely could not afford this truck. If I did buy it, it would only come out in the summer. I too, wonder why they are sitting outside like this.

    These trucks didn't change much thru the 50-60's. I'm still thinking mid 60's. Check out the link to this restoration project of a '67 Power Wagon.

    The 10K winch was not available before the '58 model year. So its '58 or newer for sure.
