1958 Dodge Power WagonImpressive Dodge Power Wagon Military Ambulance "AMBO". Restored and modernized by Legacy Classic Trucks (LCT) in Jackson, Wyoming. It features a Cummins 4BTA inter-cooled Turbo Diesel engine, 5-speed NV 4500 super duty transmission and Atlas Transfer Case. Power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes have been added. Heavy Duty 300M RCV axle shafts with 4.89 gears. BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 37 x 12.50 on 17" Marsh Racing Wheels.
The interior has Vintage Air AC and Heat, electric windshield wipers and custom gauges. AMBO has front and rear tow hitches, highlift jack and integrated toolbox. Easily cruises 65 mph all day long and gets approx. 20 mpg. You can sleep 4 people in the rear benches and the rear compartment was insulated when it was repainted. The exterior is clean and straight and was stripped, sandblasted and painted by Legacy Classic Trucks (LCT). All mechanical equipment in good working order. The engine is running properly and is very simple. No electronics so it smokes when accelerating and when lugging the motor. It is very reliable and not prone to electrical problems. Gauges and wiring completely redone by Legacy. There are 2 batteries, one for starting the engine and one for accessories so that you will always have a fresh battery to start the AMBO after using accessories when camping or hunting.
To summarize the work done by Legacy: Cummins diesel repower (looks better than factory installed), cold air intake, intercooler, NV 4500 5-speed overdrive manual transmission, Atlas transfer case, complete electrical rebuild with 12-volt conversion including all new gauges, including Fuel level, water temperature, oil pressure, voltmeter, exhaust gas temperature, turbo boost pressure, keyed ignition switch, electric windshield wipers, backup lights, new 4 core Griffin radiator, complete driveline rebuild, dual reservoir master cylinder with new brake lines, 4-wheel disc brakes, 4.89 axle gearing, front steering knuckles rebuilt with lock-out hubs, power steering upgrade, disc emergency brake and vintage air conditioning. Only 8,600 miles on vehicle since restoration/modernization.
All ready for your next camping/hunting trip or overland expedition with plenty of storage in the rear compartment below the benches which sleep 4 people comfortably, with room on the floor for a 5th. THIS IS ONE AWESOME TRUCK!
