Thinking of picking up a 70 power wagon...


Recommended Posts

318 2v, 4sp, divorced 205 tcase, really really clean and straight.  runs excellent... the guy wants 6500 which i think is a bit high.  

 

Thoughts?  

 

The plan would be a megasquirt tbi efi homebrew kit and use as a fun old tow vehicle for my 70 barracuda (once its finished).

Pretty good looking for the age. What about maybe swapping in a 440?

 

I can get all i need out of a small block with way less weight.   

 

Besides, it is realllly clean.  I dont like swapping out stuff as nice as this.  The fact it is so clean and rust free is the draw for me.  Original and cancer free makes it good to have and good investment (as vehicles go) in the long run if times become hard.

 

 Hopefully i will know something this next week if we can make a deal.

I'm a sucker for the older trucks! Looks real nice that's for sure! Keep us updated on what you find out.

 

What I would really like to find is a 70 4 door truck.  Then swap a cummins into it.

when I was a kid first learning to drive, I used to drive this old guy around, don't remember why he couldn't drive but I would take him out deer hunting in his truck and it was a 4 door from that era. had a automatic with shifter on dash, and that truck was a tank, just seeing that brought back memories

Well... turns out it is all original, uncut, comes with all 6 white original wheels, almost no rust (some on tailgate), and was a factory power steering truck.  It has a manual box in now, but the original PS parts come with it and need rebuilt.  4.11 gears as well...  also has new exhaust from manifolds back.  

 

I dont want to spend the money, but i really like the thing.  I am going to think on it.
