If you live in Beverly Hills or the Hamptons, you probably drive something made by Bugatti, Porsche, or Ferrari, but outside of those exclusive locales, you need your vehicle to do a little more than sit pretty. That's where trucks like this Legacy Classic 1947 Dodge Power Wagon come into the picture, representing both a symbol of your choice in trucks, but also in power and strength. Designed and built in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Legacy Classic knows a thing or two about high-country cool, taking the iconic 1940-1960s Dodge Power Wagons and restoring them to their original glory - and a whole lot more. Every nut and bolt is restored to the original aesthetics joined with the finest customizations and modern comforts of today, all American made, except for the Mercedes-Benz-sourced carpet and Porsche headliner. Available in regular and extended cab versions, the stock engine was replaced with a 585-hp, 550-lb-ft supercharged 6.2-liter Chevy LSA V8, but a 6.2-liter, 430-hp, 420-lb-ft Chevrolet LS3; a 7.0-liter, 430-hp, 500-lb-ft Chrysler 426; or a 170-hp, 480-lb-ft 3.9-liter Cummins turbo-diesel are also available upon request. The end result is nothing short of an heirloom, with improvements that only bolster its integrity. If you want one, you'll have to wait in line and pony up at least $185,000.
