I've tried to get my brother to give it some thought but so far no go.

1979 Dodge Power Wagon W150, 84' 318cid Bored Out - $1750

With the Russians in the Crimea, the Kim Jong Un, and the zombie apocalypse on the horizon, you need your Red Dawn vehicle to handle what comes next. This beast has made it long enough to run for president and has the power to keep going. This Power Wagon has no issues on the interstate or fording backwoods creeks. The short box was built to carry big boy toys and animal carcasses. Blessed with all-time four-wheel drive, the '79 Power Wagon can cover serious terrain without any issue. Naturally it has some cosmetic damage, but comes with a second passenger side door if dents are not your thing. The windshield appears to have a crack (or a few), but it still functions well in blocking wind and weather. Pair of working pair of wipers and cleaner keep you seeing what is coming at you. When you are not looking to stalk through the darkness, all headlights combined with trial lights mounted on the roll bar bring daylight wherever you go. Has '84 318cid engine with +0.040" bore done in 2001. This vehicle is quite the gem. Tires alone are worth quite a bit, have got me through all of our snow storms and some fun in the drifts. Has block heater that works if you like to start your truck up in the morning and have the heat working right away. Will also come with Haynes service manual, gas can and some bonus spare parts.

I have the freedom as an American to barter, so if you wish to discuss potential trades to lessen the cost, I would be open to that.

I am motivated to sell this truck so come by and take a look. My contact information can be found in the top left (click "CONTACT" button)

NEW PARTS:
Windshield Wipers
Battery
Alternator
Spark Plugs
Air Cleaner
Carburetor rebuilt beginning of January
New trail and backup light
New windshield wipers in January
New rear main seal and oil pan gasket

VERY GOOD PARTS:
Tires have significant tread and plenty of life left
Spark plug wires from newer pickup
Great CD player and speakers
Roll bar
Pulls very well

The room for improvement:
Hard shift into reverse
Oil, Water, and Gas gauge not working (sign of needing new instrument cluster voltage regulator)
Slight crack crossing entire windshield
