The Feature Mopar this month is a 1958 Dodge Power Wagon "Townie".
Here is a little bit about the history of my 1958 dodge Power Wagon Town Wagon or "Townie" as they are called by the people in the hobby. This truck is part of the power giant series 1957-1960. The rear section is the same for all years, however dodge changed the doors, front fenders, and stainless trim design each year it was made. As with any MOPAR it's all about the options I constantly look for dealer demonstrator trucks, there were few made, and fewer exist today. My 1958 Townie is a dealer demonstrator. I know of only one other truck like it. They basically have every option available that year and were given to the top dealers in the country, or were on display at the auto shows of that year. The chrome grill gaurd, chrome tissue dispenser, and dragon hooks are being installed now..they are not in the video. However, watch the video, and look through the image event of the RESTO process. My truck has the one year only ranch brown paint ....which is an additional bonus to this already outrageous dealer truck. How did I find it? It showed up on ebay......I contacted the owner within 30 mins of listing, got on the phone..asked him what he wanted...said done, had him pull the auction immediately. Some guy from Canada almost beat me to the punch on this truck. Right place, right time...don't hesitate. Cheers!!!!

I formed this club in July 2002 with the idea I just wanted a few more cool Mopars to park my 1969 GTX beside. Over the years this club has grown to be known in many states, and also other parts of the world. I have very simple rules in our club with no dues. If you think you want to be a part of us simply contact me. I will be more than happy to send you the club rules to become a part of this "Private Club". Thank you, and enjoy our Mopars! We do! I am Smilin' Ed the President.
