Vehicle Story

This 1955 Dodge C-3-PW Power Wagon pickup has been with the seller for the past year after a full restoration while under prior ownership. Power comes from a 230ci straight-6 which features a new carburetor and fresh tune-up. Shifting is accomplished through a 4-speed manual transmission, the electrical system was recently converted to a modern 12-volt system. The truck is equipped with a number of new and restored parts along with additional upgrades including interior sound deadening, undercoating, and black Naugahyde seating. Located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, this 1955 Power Wagon is now offered at auction with a clean Colorado title in the seller's name. 

A repaint in Forest Green over black perforated side steps, bumpers, fenders, and the grille was commissioned under prior ownership at an unknown date. Headlights have been upgraded to LED units while the condition of the finish shows no signs of gapping or chipping and is graded as "90%" by the seller except for a couple of minor 1-inch stress cracks in the passenger door. 

Fresh tires have been fitted over standard black steel wheels with manual lock-out hubs on the front and steering and braking systems are both operated mechanically. The inside of the box is body-matched in Forest Green and features a wood-slatted bed which appears to be in great condition showing no notable signs of hauling usage. 

The interior is outfitted in Forest Green to match the exterior and accented by black flooring and black Naugahyde upholstery over the bench seat which shows no signs of cracking or tearing. The seller notes that the steering wheel could benefit from a powder coating and that a set of Escalade sourced leather captains chair seats and an interior sound deadening kit will be included in the sale but not installed. 

New and upgraded 12-volt electrical components including the battery, alternator, and starter have been fitted to provide power for the truck's standard gauge set which features an 80-mph speedometer and gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, battery amperage, and fuel level. Both the speedometer and odometer are noted as non-operational at this time, which leaves true mileage on the chassis unknown. 

Power is sent to all four wheels by a 230ci inline-6 mated to a 4-speed floor-shifted manual transmission and low range transfer case for 4-wheel drive with a PTO. Recently updated components include a replacement single-barrel carburetor, starter motor, alternator, and battery as well as a tune-up. The seller notes 3-4 oil pan drips per week but otherwise states that the drivetrain starts and drives like a new truck. 

The underside has been kept clean and features a single exhaust pipe running to the rear along with leaf-sprung solid axles front and rear. Aftermarket undercoating was purchased by the seller but remains unapplied and will be included in the sale of the truck. Additional photos of this 1955 Power Wagon have been made available for viewing in the photo carousel.  

 

"AUTOHUNTER ADMIN UPDATE 9/14/21 9:15AM:

@AutoHunter_Info – The seller states the vehicle developed an engine knock on 9-14-21 and it will be fixed prior to the sale ...

I am an old Cadillac Dealer. These 230 engines are simple. After almost 70 years, this engine presented a knock to me upon climbing a mile long hill in Steamboat yesterday. It is a bearing. Not sure crank or cam. We will pay 100% parts and labor to replace all new bearings. A flathead 230 is a beautiful old motor. Parts are not a problem to find for it. Or, you can do it, and I’ll reimburse $100 hr flat rate book, plus 100% parts cost. Your call. You will then have a like new solid motor going forward.

@M9246043 – Hi: Any rust, filler, condo? I'm 6'4' enough leg room? Thanks ...

Don’t know of any filler or bondo. The body is in remarkable shape for an almost 70 year old vehicle. The underside pictures tell that well. There are a couple of weld seams in door jambs. You would NOT be happy at 6’4”. The seat to clutch is short. The seat to ceiling is short. I am 5’10, and have to finagle around. Windshield top in a PowerWagon is low. I have to bend down to see a traffic light. Go sit in one. It’s a deal breaker for you. Old PowerWagons are great for someone who is 5’8”. Cheers!

@widhebid – Was just wondering if the running boards are original or perhaps they are Model T or A boards? ...

Don’t know source of boards. They have a light diamond plate type raise on them. Both are powder coated black, and in solid condition. It is apparent the left board has been reworked on the outer edges.
