Throwback Thursday: The 1969 Dodge Power Wagon

1969 Power WagonDodge Power Wagons were Dodge’s answer to civilian-life after the World War II. Farmers and other civilian workers needed a heavy duty truck that could lift, carry cargo, and provide an efficient ride in 4wd. The first W series model appeared in 1957, and until 1971 was available with an optional Crew Cab–allowing up to 6 passengers to travel for work. The Power Wagon was produced until 1981 until this rugged vehicle was rebranded as the Ram.

Palmer Custom Jeeps by SOR is excited and honored to have the pleasure of reinventing this timeless truck. However, this isn’t your pop’s old Power Wagon. We have merged the Power Wagon with the 2014 Ram 3500 to result in the best of both worlds. This custom truck from Palmer Custom Jeeps by SOR will retain its vintage look, but have the horsepower and suspension of a modernized and heavy duty vehicle.

1969 Features

From 1969 onward, the Power Wagon was produced for export only due to its flat head six not being able to pass emissions. The 1969 Power Wagon was upgraded from the previous years with:

  • A safer steering wheel
  • Optional “Dude” sport trim package
  • Optional 225 ci. Six or 318 ci. V8
  • Flip-up glove box
  • New instrument cluster
  • Retractable seatbelts with housing that matched the interior
  • Fiberglass door panels
  • Single lever transfer case (versus previous two lever)

This beautifully engineered and manufactured truck still appeals to truck owners today with its sturdy body and rugged aesthetics. Continue to check our updates for the latest on our Ram-Power Wagon conversion, you won’t want to miss this finished beast.
