10 Classic Pickups That Deserve to Be Restored

Posted on

1. 1946-1978 Dodge Power Wagon

Like the Jeep, Dodge’s most famous pickup (and possibly the best named truck ever) has its roots in World War II. The Power Wagon began life in 1941 as the WC, a 1/2 ton, four-wheel drive truck for the Army. In 1946, it arrived at Dodge dealerships, becoming the first factory-built 4×4 truck. With civilian-friendly amenities like an enclosed cab and “styled” bed, the original-style Power Wagon was sold in the U.S. until 1968. After it couldn’t meet safety and emissions standards anymore, Dodge continued selling building them for export for another 10 years. Just about the only thing that can kill one of these icons is rust, so if you can get your hands on one, fix it up and hold on to it forever.
