New guy from Central Oregon

Post by dwilliams972 on Sat May 31, 2014 9:45 am

Found the website yesterday and thought I'd say Hey! I inherited a 1959 Dodge 3/4 ton Power Wagon from my dad. He had torn it completely down with hopes of restoring it. I realized early on that it was so damaged I couldn't afford to restore it. I bought a 1990 3/4 ton Dodge with a 5.9 Cummins and tore it down to the frame. The frame had to be shortened about 13 inches and after welding it together I spent two years planning and fabricating. It went in for paint last Spring and has since been to several car shows. It draws a lot of attention and has received several 1st and 2nd place trophies. My truck is definitely not a trailer queen! I drive it regularly and rarely take it out without being chased down or approached in a parking lot by someone who wants to know what I did and how I did it. I tried to post some pictures yesterday but kept getting rejected ... maybe someone can offer advice. I think you guys would like seeing this truck.

Thanks, Rich. I've got a bunch of pictures from the build, I'll have more time in a couple of weeks and could probably do that. Perhaps some soul could same some time and aggravation by taking a look at how I went about the build ....
