1969 DODGE W200 POWER WAGON SWEPTLINE CREWCAB SHORTBED STEPSIDE
This is a solid truck to build. The crew cab 4x4 sweptline dodges are getting pretty rare to find. This pickup runs good. I have a clear title in my name and the VIN does match the bodytag. Many restoration parts are available now for these making restoration much easier. This truck comes with extra doors, extra fenders, and a nice core support. I can help arrange shipping if needed. Feel free to ask questions. I have more pics I can send. Message me if your interested in doing something early on it. Thanks
This pickup has the 210 horsepower 318 V8 with two-barrel carb. I haven't checked the numbers but it is most likely the original motor. The engine runs good although I'm sure it should have a tuneup and all the fluids changed. The factory oil pressure gauge shows it has very good oil pressure. The truck runs cool and doesn't overheat. There is no water in the oil or oil in the water. No ticks or knocks. It smokes a little when cold then clears up. The transmission and clutch work nicely. There is minor throwout bearing noise but it should be fine for many more miles if you don't want to change it. The fuel, oil pressure gauge, and voltmeter work. The temperature gauge works but is an aftermarket. I forgot to check the speedometer the last time I drove it. The headlights, taillights and brake lights work. The turn signals and heater fan do not work. I think the heater fan was on a toggle switch and just isn't hooked up now. The 4x4 works and transfer case works in all gears. All gears in transmission work fine also. I didn't drive it fast enough to see if any u-joints are bad but I didn't notice anything making any weird noises or binding. The exhaust needs tail pipe work. There is the regular old-truck seepage but no dripping leaks. I have a video of it running and a walkaround. Tires are usable but unmatched older 16" so it should probably have new tires. The brakes work but I'm sure they should all be checked out. It starts right up and if it's cold you have to leave the choke on a bit but when warm it starts right up by just turning the key and it idles fine.
The body is pretty solid for a project but has some of the rust that is common on dodge trucks of this era. The front floorpans need re-done. The steps in the front flat part need work also. It needs rocker panel replacement. The rear floors are good but the rear steps also need a little work on the flat part. The front doors are nice. The rear doors need some rust repair in the bottoms. I'm sure patch panels are available but two extra front doors are included and could be used to repair the rear doors. Also included are two extra front fenders/inner fenders, and a very nice core support. The panel above the bumper on these trucks is part of the core support, and it is in nice shape. No frame rust. This truck probably never saw any rust before being retired. Front fenders are fixable but the included fenders are better. The box doesn't have rust but the fenders need work. No dents in the roof. Pillars and jams are in good shape. Cab corners are in good shape. Outer rust on the cowl which is common on these trucks and there are companies making the repair pieces. From what I've seen just about every patch panel that is needed is reproduced and I can send that information.
There isn't much to speak of about the interior of these trucks. They had very little interior upholstery when new. The seats need re-done. The visors are in decent shape. There is no carpet. The dash pad needs replaced. Most of the interior is plain metal. The pics tell the story.
This is a cool truck to restore and the old power wagons are good classics to invest in. You can have a classic that you can fit the whole family in and work and play with. Used and sold as-is.
