1952 Dodge Power Wagon
The winch cable could go through a sheave roller mounted to the bottom of the beam and the cable would go through a snatch block attached to the end of the beam . The Power Wagon would be great for a yard winch truck and the driver could see what the cable is hooked to . The steering should be converted to power steering as heavy loads hanging on the cable would make steering extremely difficult to steer the power wagon . We used to have a 47 International 6 x 6 old military truck with a 30,000 lbs winch on the rear and the factory mounted winch similar on the power wagon and at times we had a set of gin poles that we used on the front and with a heavy load the steering was very , very hard to steer . I'd like to have another winch truck and the power wagon would be my first choice .
This is the new ACME launch platform for the next generation space vehical that will replace the shuttle. NASA mounted it on this old Dodge so they would not have to use that big bulky slow moving one. All you have to do is add rubber bands then crank and it will launch anything into space. Just ask the coyote.
maybe some sort of crane.
I want to know what is in the bed and hooked op to the winch?
That cab is very nice and would make a very cool hot rod. The cabs on these were the same as the pickups. Sad to see it sit or worse, get crushed.
