MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present the 1968 Dodge M601.This truck was used as a small town veterans day parade participant after being decommissioned from military use. They are still widely recognized as one of the most capable, hardcore, go-anywhere off road vehicles ever produced!
The M601, or Special Power Wagon, was ordered from the Chrysler Corporation in the mid or latter part of the 1950’s. The M601 was an alternative to the military-spec Dodge M37. The M601 was distributed to foreign militaries through the Military Defense Assistance Program, perhaps because it was less expensive than the M37.
Finished in correct Army “Olive Drab” Green, this troop carrier shows extremely well. The front bumper with attached tow hooks has a tight fit and shows well. The cab is open, but does come equipped with a removal canvass top for protection from the elements. The windshield also has the capability to fold down. This truck’s cab does have canvass straps for restraint devices. The original steering wheel has a protective laced vinyl wrap. The cargo area also features a oak framed and canvass covering for the cargo area. The rear of the vehicle does have the correct trailer hitch.
Inside, the interior features two front seats are covered with a tobacco colored vinyl and look great. The rear bed is constructed with a diamond plate metal, finished in the same green. The bed has a opposing slatted oak benches that fold upward for more cargo space.
This 4 x 4 Dodge M601 is powered by a 251 cubic inch inline 6 cylinder engine fed by a Chrysler carburetor. Power is transferred to the wheels using a 4-speed manual and with the aid of a two speed transfer case and locking front hubs. Equipped with Budd 16 x 5 bolt steel wheels and sits upon a set of 9.00-16 Mohawk military tires.
The former owner put a lot of money into refreshing this Dodge M601 and it shows! This truck runs like a champ. Simply turn the switch, hit the floor start and this beast roars to life.!… GET OUT AND DRIVE!
