Default Dodge FFPW Resto

I am restoring a 1951 Dodge civilian Flat Fender Power Wagon. Would it be OK to post and ask questions on this forum or where should I go?

Welcome to the forum.

You're good to go in this forum section. I don't know much about this vehicle but you have it in the Military Vehicles section. We also have a general "Cars and Trucks" section but our members would normally hit both.

Since your posting pics, sure would like to see a bigger version of your avatar picture. That's something really sweet there!

Darn I would this would have been posted a couple years ago. My daughter went to school with a friend who's dad had restored a couple different varients of the old Power Wagons. I used to run into him from time-to-time at school functions, but I've not seen him in 2 or 3 years. I'm sure he'd have been able to help.

I hear you about the owners idea of FFPW's value. Mine was free to haul off a ranch that was being taken over by the sons. It is not in good shape but I like challenges. Parts are available, I just paid $73 for a new water pump from NAPA.

The FFPW (Flat Fender Power Wagon) I began to restore in 2015 is now complete. I have a lot of time, and money into this restoration but it has kept me vertical, and for the most part, out of the bars this past 5 years.

What an absolutely beautiful job. Your skill, patience and perseverance amaze me. Now the big question is, are you going to store it and look at it or are you going to take it out on the road and enjoy it? Me? I'd be driving that puppy.

Thanks for the kind words. You forgot one thing, money! If I keep it 25 years in this condition I wont be able to get out of it what I put in. So, yes I am driving it as soon as I get it registered. It took 5 months to get a title for it. It is titled as a Reconstructed Vehicle. I will register it as a 1949 Dodge Power Wagon Vintage Vehicle.

BTW, it rides like a 1949 Power Wagon too.
