Lot #660 - This incredibly rare, fully frame-off restored 1960 Fargo Power Wagon is the unique name given to Power Wagons sold in Canada. They are identical in every way to the U.S. models except for some very unique and rare badging. It is the unicorn of the highly collectible Power Wagon line of trucks. Derived from the Dodge 3/4-ton WC series trucks used in World War II, the first civilian 4x4 Dodge Power Wagon debuted in 1946. These trucks became instant hits with contractors, municipalities, ranchers and anyone needing a rugged easy-to-repair four-wheel drive for serious work. The platform was so solid and had such an outstanding reputation for reliability that it stayed in production virtually unchanged until 1968. Originally found in working condition in Southern Quebec, Canada, this Fargo underwent a frame-off restoration in St. Jerome that was completed in 2011. The rugged truck stays true to the original Fargo's of the era and retains its original rebuilt 235.5/94hp Flathead 6-cylinder engine and original 4-speed transmission. Painted in a Deep Burgundy and accented with black fenders, this truck is very striking in appearance. It starts and drives reliably like a good work truck should. Power Wagons were spartan in their interior appointments, but this truck has deluxe carpet, vinyl seats, door cards and matching headliner. The truck is optioned with the highly desirable heavy-duty winch, marker lights, factory auxiliary lights and a beautiful wood bed.
