1958 Dodge Power Wagon

This 1958 Dodge W100 Power Wagon is a Rare Piece. It has the full rolled back window and a full rolled front windshield. Except for the bed being standard, a 58 swept side recently sold on Mecum for over 50K. The truck has had 2 owners. It is in the Power Wagon Registry with full details.
It is my personal truck and I'm not comfortable with selling it. However with this screwed up economy I must sell.

I bought this truck from the Original owner back in 2002. He bought the truck new in Phoenix, Arizona. He had restored it to the best of his ability. He changed the color of the truck from Beige/White to Red-Pearl/Silver-Pearl. He used it at the boat ramp on Roosevelt Lake in Arizona. I had to go meet him before he would agree to sell it to me even at the price he had it listed at. It was very important to him that I left it original. It had an engine overhaul at 70K on the original engine. It has around 72K original miles and I've put less than 1000 miles on it since 2002. It's been kept inside. It's all original mechanically except for the installation of a Chrysler DeSoto power steering column and pump. It also has a aluminum diamond plate bed liner that he had custom made. I have the original Owners Manual, Jack and Spanner for 4 Wheel Drive locks.
