Auction Block: 1941 Dodge Power Wagon ‘Full Metal Jacket’

Apr 21, 2020

Category: Rides

Finding a midcentury Dodge Power Wagon in great working condition is a feat in and of itself. But what happens when you stumble upon a jawdropping, fully-restored off-road platform that has cutouts for two .45 ACP 1911 pistols in its floorboards? This 1941 “Full Metal Jacket” build that’s just been listed for sale on Mecum might give you an answer.

In an attempt to make Dodge’s 1941 Power Wagon even more intimidating, the “Full Metal Jacket” has been gifted with a powerful 3.9L 4BT Cummins turbo diesel engine, a TH350 automatic transmission, and custom-built chassis housing triangulated four-link shocks. Heading to the back, interested parties will find an eye-popping Brazilian hardwood bed, hand-brushed nickel accents, and various LED light sources, giving the pickup an aura of vintage versatility. But it’s the Metal Jacket’s interior that’s the star of the show here. Premium Hydes Italian leather upholstery, a vintage Dakota Digital gauge cluster, and a set of hidden compartments tailored to house a pair of 1911 pistols are just a handful of bespoke touches that have contributed to the truck’s award-winning reputation. Head to Mecum’s website for more information before the June 3-7 auction date.
