Description for Dodge Power Wagon 1952

Listing my civilian Power Wagon. I believe it is a model B-3-PW.

This came out of the Hackenberger Collection in northern Ohio last year. Ron collected cars and trucks from all over the country. This one seems to have come from out somewhere out west as its much better than your average Ohio project. It was also stored under a shed roof for the last 15-20 years. It runs and lot drives but is not roadworthy yet.

The truck has a clear Ohio title but it is branded salvage for an unknown reason. It can be titled and registered for road used but must be inspected by the state of Ohio beforehand...Please check your state's rules before bidding. There is no sign of accident damage, so I'm assuming the previous owner purchased from a junkyard or state auction years ago.

This was originally equipped with a winch and still has the PTO and controls, but no winch. The only other option is a genuine Mopar heater.

Previous owner began a 12V conversion and it currently runs on a 12V battery.

Has a beer keg for a fuel tank, which works, but the truck will need a new fuel pump. I'm running it off a remote can to the carburetor now. Carb should be cleaned and rebuilt, but it does ok as-is. Engine holds coolant and doesn't seem to overheat, leak fluids or make odd noises.

Clutch feels good, tires are older but have great tread and hold air.

Flatbed is fabricated from oilfield pipe and treated lumber and is pretty heavy duty.

Transfer case works and front axle seems to disengage properly. Hydraulic brakes are out, hand brake works.

Doors are solid with good bottoms and they open and close nicely. Door strikers on the body seem to be missing.

Floors are solid with just minor rust through in corners. Rust above windshield area inside cab.

Windshield is missing, but hinges are still on the body.

Exterior cab corner has rust through, and there's some rust along the very bottom of the back of the cab. Passenger cab corner and inner rockers seem solid.

Frame is very clean.

Headlights are not installed but included. Rear window interior trim also included.

Truck is located near Cincinnati, in Amelia, Ohio. Zip 45102.

Inspections and questions are welcome.

I'm serious about selling the truck but am not looking for low offers. This is the best project Power Wagon I've come across in years, but I have a lot of projects ahead of it.

Thanks for looking!
