4×4 Crew Cab: 1969 Dodge Power Wagon

There cannot be too many of these Dodge Power Wagons left. This is a 1969 Dodge W200 Power Wagon with Crew Cab and a short wheel base stepside bed. The truck is located in Eureka, Montana. It is listed for sale with 3 days remaining in the auction here on eBay. The truck is currently bid to $3,215 but the reserve has not been met. While the truck is pretty beat up, it is a 4×4 example the Dodge Power Wagon equipped with a manual transmission and is said to run and drive.

The truck may be equipped with its original 210 horsepower 318 cubic inch V8 engine that was fed by a 2 barrel carburetor. The wiring under the hood looks like a mess but the truck appears to have its original air cleaner. The seller states that the engine is running and holds good oil pressure with no knocks or ticks. However, the engine smokes a little when it is cold but that is probably old valve stem seals.The manual transmission and clutch work but there is noise from the throwout bearing.

The interior shows surface rust on the floor boards and the dash pad is cracked. The fuel, oil pressure and voltmeter gauges are said to work. An aftermarket temperature gauge is mounted under the dash. The front bench seat has duct tape to patch up or cover up a worn out section on the driver’s side of the seat. The headlights and tail lights or in working order as is the 4×4 transfer case. The truck will need new exhaust and new tires. The brakes and fuel delivery system should probably be rebuilt for safety reasons.

While the seller states that the truck is solid, the floorboards and rear doors will need rust repair. Two new front fenders and inner fender wells are included with the sale along with a nice core support. The worst damage is the front fenders so that should be an easy fix. The mileage on the odometer shows 47,801. This is a cool old truck and I hope a Dodge enthusiast restores it to its former glory.

    This was probably used at the small Air Force base
    in Lakeside,Montana.There was a radar installation at the
    top of the mountain.My Brother-in-Law was stationed there
    in the early ’70’s.
    These were the kind of trucks you bought when you
    needed to actually haul stuff.I can’t imagine they were very
    comfortable.

      Particularly a 6′ Utiline, since most of the few retail buyers for a crewcab would’ve been looking to haul a slide-in camper.

    Bought one of these from a co-worker back in the late 80s. The previous owner had installed leather seats from a Lincoln or Cadillac. Had the 318 with 4 speed (granny gear 1st). Wish I had held onto it, it was a great truck with horrible gas mileage, lol. It had a faded Green/White/Green paint job, in much better shape than the one for sale here. Would love to have this!

      Yessss. Was it a stepside though? And I think maybe a longer bed, so it was like 50 ft long lol. Creepy movie.

    One has a major role in “Resident alien”.

    Those white doors are off of an Adventurer model and that chrome (aluminum) trim on the bottom is very difficult to find in good condition, which these look to be. Also that mirror arm on the passenger side door is also difficult to find and expensive when you do find one. There is very little after-market support for body and trim items for these although mechanical parts are available. There’s some good forums for 62-71 Dodge trucks that you need to be aware of if you buy one.

    Under-hood wiring “nest-of-snakes” plus clamp-on battery terminal … beware

      Yes. If you were to buy this and plan on driving it regularly you should plan on sorting out or replacing the wiring. The firewall connector is where the most trouble originates.
