Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Wish You Could Buy a Modern Dodge Power Wagon? Wish No More.

Posted November 20, 2014 8:30 AM by dstrohl

Few trucks highlighted in our daily Find of the Day piece receive the same amount of commentary as vintage Dodge Power Wagons, which appear in our classifieds on a somewhat regular basis. Perhaps it's the rugged good looks of the WM series, which carried on with World War II styling from 1945 until safety and emission regulations killed the truck for good in 1968. Now, thanks to Legacy Classic Trucks in Driggs, Idaho, the Power Wagon has been reborn for a new age, and is available in two-door, four-door or Carryall (SUV) variants.

To be clear, Legacy isn't building new Power Wagons from the ground up, although given how much work goes into producing one of its trucks, it would be hard to tell the difference. Beginning with a clean Carryall WC-53 or pickup donor, (which can be sourced by Legacy or provided by a customer), the firm performs a body-off-frame restoration and then begins reassembling the truck with modern mechanicals and interior appointments, many of which can be chosen by prospective buyers during the ordering process.

See current Power Wagons in their prime on Hemmings.
