The thing is, these four-door variants are so rare some people have to go to great lengths to enjoy one. Like, say, convert a two-door into a crew cab.
That is what happened with the truck we have here. It started life as a two-door Power Wagon from 1949, but it’s body got stretched to accommodate an extra pair of doors, and of course, a bench at the back to seat more people. The newly-enlarged cabin was then surrounded by tinted glass.
The more massive body of the truck comes in red overalls, offset by touches of strategically-placed black metallic parts. The thing looks huge in this new configuration, and that feeling is enhanced by the 4-inch (101-mm) Rough Country lift kit, in turn supporting a “modern chassis that can be serviced by any Dodge dealership.”
The truck runs a 5.9-liter Cummins diesel engine under the hood, supported in its task by an automatic transmission. The engine spins Black Rhino wheels wrapped in 40-inch Cooper tires, and there’s a WARN winch on deck to handle sticky situations.
The extended 1949 Dodge Power Wagon is on the lot of cars going under the hammer next month in Scottsdale, Arizona. Barrett-Jackson will handle the no-reserve sale, but no estimate on how much it could fetch is made.
