Thank you for your interest in my beloved Power Wagon B-1 PW126 truck. To be clear, this truck was restored well over 20 years ago. It has since been lovingly maintained and stored indoors, but it has also been used and driven, with some scratches and minor dings visible. Details on the condition of the truck, and the work done, are as follows;

The engine in the truck is not original. It is a flat-head six from a Chrysler car. It was rebuilt and painted GM Alpine Green, because we liked the look of that color at the time. It starts easily, runs smoothly, and does not smoke or burn oil. Approximately 6,000 miles have been put on this truck since it was restored. The original engine , which would need to be rebuilt, is included and will be packaged in a sturdy case.
Original 4-speed, non-synchronized transmission, and 2-speed transfer case.
The clutch was replaced, as well as the transfer case mounts and bushings.
The tires are weather-checked, but the tread depth is good. All tires hold air.
Bed wood is original, no rot.
The truck carried a bed-mounted ladder in its early life, which dented the roof. Body filler was used to smooth the bumped-out metal, but it has since shrunk and cracked.
The exterior was repainted the original color; the interior and engine compartment paint is completely original, not repainted. Paint is in good condition, but has some scratches and chips.
Non-original tailgate chains
The door emblem is an accurate vinyl reproduction of what was originally painted on the doors.
Key unlocks passenger side door lock
Has rare, factory Mopar model 36 heater and controls
Dial fell off speedo, which is common on these trucks. Repair part is readily available through aftermarket. Speedometer and odometer are operational, along with other gauges.
Upholstery in good condition
Headliner in fair condition
1940's trailer socket mounted on rear cross member, internal terminals available upon request.
Factory pintle hook
Factory PTO winch

In conclusion, this truck is a rust-free example of a survivor, and was not "over-restored." Its mechanical components were gone through to provide reliable service. The body was gently bumped and massaged so that a new coat of paint would gleam and catch your eye. If you were to transport yourself back to the early 50's, this is what a well-cared-for, but daily-worked Power Wagon might look like. From this owners perspective, it's the kind of truck you can jump in and drive to the lumber yard to pick up supplies for your deck makeover, or cruise to your towns Saturday car show. No matter how ya look at it, this classic brute is comfortable in its own skin, and is ready to take its new owner on any adventure they choose.
