  • My Tomato (a trip to the dark side....)

    I ended up selling the POR Hawk that I got from JP last week and had some change in my pocket and ended up buying my own version of the Tomato, a 1970 Dodge 200 Power Wagon.

    It has a 413 4V and 4:10 rears.... wonder how it would stack up against Ted? [8D]

    While you can barely make it out in the lower right corner, it does have a battery hold down.

        Your tomato is a "Big Boy" but Ted's is a "Better Boy"

            I haven't measured them, but it looks like it has dual 3" exhausts! The gas gauge just failed, the way this thing probably sucks gas I need to get it fixed.

            I have not owned a Dodge in 25 years (I sold a '72 W-300 Power Wagon in '82), but I noticed that the build tag lists the options on it. The clearance lights on the cab are the only things listed.

                Just get a 55 gallon barrel and fill it with fuel, and keep it in the bed. If you do run out, that should at least last you a couple miles to the next gas station.

                    Gary, that's a nice find. It's hard to locate those trucks without rusty bodywork just hanging off of it. As mentioned, it'll suck crude like no tomorrow. 8-10 MPG is when you're coasting down hill .

                        There has been some rust repair on the back of the front fenders, someone did a poor job on top of the floors but when I looked underneath I only saw a few small pinholes, so they are solid. The box is amazingly straight on the inside, but the inner fenders are beat to death.

                        I need to go through it carefully for items left behind, in just quickly looking I found a tape measure and a pack of drill bits as well a 2 for sale posters. Turns out that I paid $1800 less than his initial asking price. To top it off the owner has found the missing tailgate, which is a hard to find item.

                            Guido, don't forget to check the ammeter tap in back of the dash. I've seen more Dodge trucks in junkyards with melted dashboards because that thing corroded and sparked a fire...
