Power Wagon is on a distinguished road
Default A toy bought new in '74......

.

Rooting around in my old pics and I found this. My bought new 1974 Dodge Power Wagon with the factory snow plow package called a "Sno-Fiter" and a 318 and 4 speed (NP435 with 6.68 : 1 first gear). I used to live in the Southern-tier of Western New York State and the "Sno-Fiters" were extremely popular there. They were like tanks and could push an amazing amount of snow around. Bought it new in '74 and added 15x8 Jackman 8 spoke rims and 11x15 tires (hey, those were state of the art 40 years ago). Gotta' love that hood and gun racks in the rear window ! Honestly, in retrospect, this truck was one of my all time favorites. Nothing ever broke and it would give me 18 mpg all day long (3:55 sure-grip rear axle). Put a 160k miles on it and traded it for an identical 1980 version!
