JD ..... Dodge did make some large flat-head six cylinder engines. From 1930 to 1953, there was a truck series flat-head in 310 cubic inches, 331 cubic inches, 377 cubic inches, and finally a 413 cubic inch - dual carbed, split manifold flat-head six cylinder engine in 1953. Bore/stroke on the 413 was 4 1/16 x 5 5/16 ..... 171 horsepower, 343 foot pounds torque.

There were other power-plants in various displacements ...... all flat-head sixes.

Get it, and put it back to doing what it was built for ...... nice quad hauler!

If it doesn't have a Cummins I don't want it. Therefore alterations are necessary.

Some variants of the Power Wagon I would actually leave intact. IE the ones with the rare Willock Swivel Frames.

2015 Honda Rubicant FM7
- 27" Bighorn 2.0's
- Powermadd Handguards
- ODI Grips

2016 Can-am Renegade 1000R XMR
- 31x11" Outlaws
- NPP Dual Dominators
- Monster Power Tuner + Autotune
- ECM Reflash
- TheBOM Mag+ Cams
- TwinAir Air filter
- Delrin Motor Mounts
- Aluminum Valve Covers
- Gorilla Through Shaft
- TigerTail
- Amsteel Synthetic Winch rope
- Cecco Racing Steering Stem Brace

It'd be a great daily driver with the disc brake upgrade kit,the 12v swap along with an alternator instead of the gen,and some upgraded seat guts suspension seat style webbing instead of metal springs,and the modern gel foam for the padding would make them long harsh rides so much more smooth,and comfy,but still resemble stock to the untrained eye...Love the old Power Wagons...

If you went to the time and great expense to completely restore a vehicle to 100% new condition you would only have the safety, reliability and fuel economy of a vehicle designed and built in that era. What you would have would be an unsafe gas hog that breaks down often. I restored a car about 10 years ago and to be honest, the restoration has never stopped. They are always things needing replaced. Just this fall the brake booster started leaking and another oil leak developed. I spend more time working on it than I do driving it and it's only a 1981!

Buy it as a toy.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

12V (6BT) wont fit without serious modifications. That's a big 1000lb motor, you'd need to box the frame and cut the firewall, upgrade the whole front suspension. The shorter 4BT is a much better fit, and has plenty of power.

Mac 102004 that is a nice one ya got there and as for all the creature comforts, I'll definatley consider them, Deep your right but I dont know where im gonna find a disc brake kit for one, Macarena man, what engine do you think would be right for me? I'd like to run open road but ocasinally intersate? I think 12 volt will fit, I dont like 6 volt, cause the engine don't turn over fast enough to pull the fuel in.

Not mine, just a pic off the net. I wish it was. I have read there were only about 40 of those swivel frame trucks built.
