1976 Dodge w100 4x4 Power Wagon
Insure your dream car with us!
I absolutely do not want to sell this truck but I found a piece of land I am interested in buying and I would regret if I didn't at least try.
Price is firm.
You most likely will never see a truck as nice as this again.
Brand new professionally built 1971 LA360 engine at Alex machine shop, installed at Fred's automotive (have all receipts, currently has approx 1,100km) (Comes with a warranty) - hot tanked, magnafluxed, bored 30 over, crank shaft turned 10 & 10, everything you would normally do - ARP bolts -KB232 pistons with moly rings -PW63170 performance aluminum heads ( 9.3:1 compression) -600cfm quick fuel carb - XE268H Compcams camshaft - Performance B&M torque converter (2800rpm stall I think, maybe 2600, would need to look) - Hooker headers - Reduced Gear starter cuz headers were in the way -Dual Flowmaster 40 series exhausts -Too much to list
Truck itself is near showroom condition, interior and exterior is fantastic. I was just about to start the full restore of the electrical system as that is pretty much all that remains for restoration. Electrical works, its just 43 years old.
The W100 is 'always' 4x4, these trucks did not come with 2x4 option but this truck has the miles marker update so it now has both 2x4 and 4x4 but loses its 4x4 locker setup. You'd need to put manual lockers on now if you really wanted to use this truck for hard off-roading.
Engine was designed for a performance low end torque build, but would also be designed with longevity in mind ( I want it to last 200,000km) so it dynoed (see sheet) at 360 horse power, and 390ft/lbs of torque. Its not a high performance engine that requires valve lash adjustment every 5,000km. Just treat it good and it'll treat you good.
3.21/3.23 gears, I looked at rear and they are in excellent condition - I have pictures. Haven't looked at front yet. 727 3speed auto-transmission is solid and shifts beautifully. Not sure if previous owner had it rebuilt but it is running in top condition. It does need adjustment with the kick down levers, need to make them work with the new carb and intake position. Just haven't gotten around to it yet. Just requires a bit of time and patience.
Id say truck is 95% complete.
As I mentioned, I had no intention of selling this and want to finish this build but I really would love this piece of land.
I am also going to throw in all the old stuff from the previous engines (I have two 318s, a 71 and a 86 I believe) no idea what happened to the original matching numbers engine but the VIN indicates it was a 318. I have a few old 4 barrel intakes and carbs etc, lots of old heavy stuff like every other mopar nut :)
This truck runs and drives wonderfully. I just took it camping with my gypsy wagon last weekend to Hope, BC.
- No Trades (obviously) - I don't need help selling it - it'll sell itself. -PS no pressure but if your himming and hawing about this, honestly the second I sell this truck Im buying that land. So if the land sells to someone else Im taking this ad down immediately and keeping the truck.
