Before you go ape sh*t, yes, that ‘s a really big pick up truck you’re looking at right now. And not just any pickup, it just happens to be the iconic Legacy Power Wagon by Dodge, the same automaker that brought you the original Dodge Charger. From the looks of it, you can probably already tell what era it actually was made for — you guessed it, the early 20th century. In fact, this bad boy was originally produced by Dodge for the military during WWII and over a quarter of a million were built from 1941 to 1945.

Now you’ll find them all over the place in the country, abandoned no-less, by their previous owners. But leave to Legacy Classics founder Winslow S. Bent, and the nostalgia of a by-gone era is literally restored. As you can imagine, the fully restored Power Wagon is a few steps up from its predecessor. Under the hood is a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine pushing out over 550hp enabling the wagon to go from 0-to-60 in just over six seconds, which isn’t that bad for its size. The interior features LED-backlit Classic Instruments, a tilting Nardi steering wheel, Mercedes-Benz carpet and Cadillac Escalade seats.

All that power and luxury/vintage styling equates to a fairly heavy road runner, 6,400Lbs. to be exact, but what would you expect from a pickup called “Power Wagon”. With its top speed at 100+mph, all wheel drive and seating for two (not including if you fill up the bed with a few people), this is one restoration to be reckoned with.
