Hello from Rainy Portland Oregon

Post by N70SJ on Wed Oct 28, 2015 12:47 pm

Ran across this in some guys front yard in a small town called Wallowa in eastern Oregon. I drive a 2010 Dodge 3500 but know nothing about old ones like this.
I did figure out:
YEAR: 1957
4-WD
V8
4-Speed Stick
Power Wagon

Oh yea, I took a chance and did find a neighbor who gave me the # of the daughter of the older man who usta live in the house. I called her, she called him, I asked if he wanted to sell, he said yes, we did the deal.

The following week I was in town getting some pipe. I told the old guy about the Power Wagon and he said he had a 55 since bran new and wanted to sell it. I bought it to.

My son-in-law thought I was crazy buying this "piece of crap", that's what he called it. But he was a good sport and helped me drag it to the farm.

Anyone out there? Are these a dime a dozen? Is the 57' worth doing a off-body restoration?

Thanks Rich; however, I think your Lime green truck is cooler looking.
