    Yogurts Power Wagon 4x4

    Yesterday I picked up a 1978 Power Wagon 4x4.

    Stopped off to visit my uncle, he has about 20 acres and lots of cool shit laying around.
    I was looking around his barn and in a field next to it was this truck. I asked what's the deal with the truck and that I was falling in love with it.

    He said in 2009 he had the 360 pulled and a full rebuilt was done, all new brakes new interior aluminum radiator and the list goes on. The truck is rust free and straight as hell. He drove it for 1200 miles and just parked it in the field and never drove it again.

    So I said how much? He gave me challenge and said get it off my property without driving, pulling or pushing it within the next three hours and its yours. I was driving the family car with no trailer and I live over an hour away so that wasn't happening and then it hit me. I grabbed my phone and called AAA, a flat bed showed up within an hour and was gone well before two hours were up.

    My uncle laughed and said well done as he signed over the pink. To be honest I think his plan was to give it to me anyhow. He is a great guy and I've always looked up to him.

    So I plan to finish up the resto where he left off.

    Pic's to come

    That's awesome. What a great deal, quick thinking nephew!

    More details on the wheels please. I've got an old Chevy truck with 17.5 x 7 wheels that will need a modern size eventually.

    Yeah...thinking of getting some Summits for my big pig.

    Sweet lookin' truck. Can't wait to see the resto. Are you going to go traditional and keep it stock looking.....or go full lifted custom 4x4?

    It will be semi custom. Just a 2in lift with 33's. I'm going to do it like the factory would if they made a a specialty truck. Kinda like a raptor today, but my inspiration is from a late 60's copo camaro of all things. Lol hey it makes sense to me. ;-)

    Did a few things to her over the last week.
    Did a mini tune up and took her down and passed smog with flying colors.


    Ripped out about 3 miles of hacked wiring and now she is all back to stock.


    The best part was the gun rack that will never come out.


    My buddy owns a tire shop and made me a killer deal on some wheels and tires he had. They weren't my first pick but should look great, I'm a sucker for a great deal. We didn't have time to do it over the weekend, so they will go on later this week. They are just some soft 8's with 33 in General red letters.
