Legacy Builds A Go-Anywhere Twin-Turbo Diesel 1949 Power Wagon Restomod

Originally developed and deployed as a military vehicle before later being rereleased as a civilianized model, the Dodge Power Wagon is one of the most celebrated trucks from the mid-1900s. Wyoming’s Legacy Classic Trucks specializes in breathing new life into these massive American pickups, tearing down derelict examples, and building them back up as contemporary restomods. And the latest LCT build — its 108th project — continues this MO with a four-door 1949 Power Wagon born out of more than 2,000 man-hours of labor.

Starting under the hood, the stock powertrain has been replaced with a twin-turbo Cummins 4BT 8-valve turbo diesel engine paired with a five-speed transmission that makes a cool 350hp and 600ft-lbs of torque. Performance upgrades come in the form of Dana 60 axles, ARB locking differentials, Warn locking hubs, and aftermarket bead-locked rims shod in 40” Toyo rubber. Other noteworthy additions include upgraded lighting, a Warn winch, an RDS aluminum tool/fuel box in a custom wood-lined bed, and a fully-finished interior with bespoke leather seats, German square-weave floor mats, a wooden steering wheel, period-correct vintage-style instrumentation, and an optional Bluetooth stereo and HVAC system. Pricing starts at $350,000 and goes up depending on add-on options and amenities.

Purchase: $350,000+
