1963 Dodge Power Wagon W200
Mostly stock and original W200 Dodge Sweptline (3/4 ton 4x4) with 120" wheelbase with 61808 original miles; model 420 per the data plate--almost cherry. For saleby secondowner
Minor surface rust, (one bubble under the stainless trim above the windshield); no dents, heavy duty truck currently used daily for working.
Low silhouette service body by Douglass (4' inside box x 10' (49" x 120+") out of Bakersfield--original owner says it came new from the dealer's lot in Auburn with the bed. Front fender infills are extremely rare and factory.
Stock V8 318 poly with professionally rebuilt heads burns regular unleaded.
New long tri-y headers from Stan's Headers (Washington) are heavy duty with complete new dual exhaust.
Original radiator just boiled/serviced. No leaks. No overheating.
Archer (vintage) Capacitor Discharge Ignition.
Adapted air filter works with cartridge and a moonie hubcap--comes with original oil bath if you are a purist. Many spares, including new Carter carb.
Stock 4 speed transmission is crisp and shifts like new.
Factory power brakes are newly rebuilt in professional shop.
Four wheel drive works as original, no slop, no difficulty, engages easily.
Warn freewheeling hubs work as new.
Dana 44 front axle, Dana 60 rear.
Two fuel tanks.
8000# winch works great.
New E load range M&S highway tires with 1000 miles wear on late Dodge 3/4 ton 5 spoke wheels. Includes complete a second set of 12 x16.5 on steel rims for off road.
Excellent truck--you can put it to work on Monday. Parts are no problem. Very reliable. Starts instantly. Easy to work on. Goes down the road with low stress and one finger and one thumb. I would drive it to New York today.
New heavy gauge lower floor pans, professionally done old style with continuous welding & replaced one cab mount by a restoration body shop. Dynamat makes truck quiet and conversation normal...
Needs a newrubberfloor mat, and new rubber ws for the windows and doors would be nice ($145 kit), though windshield is sealed with black polyurethane.
Body Shop installed shoulder belts and center lap belt.
All locks work.
If you are in the market for a proper work truck in good shape, you can't touch this for value.
If you are a mechanic, or ride motor bikes or atvs or are into off road recovery this is your rig.
If you are a heavy equipment operator there is room for a 24x24x48" transfer tank for diesel and still 8' of bed for carrying supplies. Easy to adapt the uprights to a rack for pipe, etc.
If you are a Dodge aficionado looking for a relatively easy restoration project this is also an excellent place to start.
With a full load of tools and I get 14 mpg in town/country where I live.
It will cruise at 75, but I keep it under 65 for best economy.
