Default 1980 PowerWagon

I just thought I would share some pics of my 80 Powerwagon with you all. I paid 1100 bucks for it. It has a 318 with a 4 speed and it is 4 wheel drive. Everything electrical worked on this truck, even the factory radio. This truck had 82000 original miles when I got it.

========================================
Looks GOOD for a 30yr old truck!!!

318 is a lil' motor for it bein 4x4, I'd be lookin for a 360, 383, 400, or 440 as far as POWER WAGON goes...

I've had two PowerWagons, both 1976 D200's. They were...well, all I can say is ... beasts. They were powerful enough for anything I ever wanted to do. But alas, they were physically too big for me... I'm a little guy and looked like a midget sitting in them. I finally sold them and opted for something more my size... a '93 Ranger. Only complaint was the PowerWagons couldn't go past a gas station without stopping.
