Behold, the king of trucks! Yes, the 2015 Legacy Power Wagon Conversion ($185,000) has it all: Power. Character. Vintage American iron. Damn good looks. Sure, you’d have to sell two of your children to get one, but hey, quality is not cheap and never will be. And this bad boy is worth every penny.
Hand-built by the artisan auto mechanics over at Legacy Classic Trucks in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this pure-blood pickup is based on the iconic Dodge Power Wagon ( made between 1945 and 1980 ). The guys at Legacy spend more than 1,000 hours on each truck, restoring every nut and bolt, and then adding the finest customizations and modernizations of today. The result is a tough workhorse 4X4, looking like the REAL deal from 70 years ago, but upgraded with a 480hp 6.2 Liter V-8, capable of reaching speeds of over 100 mph, and a 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds – not bad for a truck this size!
Every Legacy power wagon conversion comes standard with leather seats, a 10 gauge LED-backlit classic instrument cluster, A/C, power steering, long travel suspension with Bilstein shocks, a 16,500 lbs towing-capable winch, and more. The buyers can also select from a variety of options including 2 or 4 door models, Chevy LT1 or Commonrail diesel engines, automatic or manual transmissions, Nardi steering wheels in hand-stitched leather or mahogany, integral rollcage, long rage fuel tanks, plus different sized tires and wheels. Only a handful of trucks are created each year, for gentlemen that demand the finest.
