Welcome! Ken I assume... ;D I've got a '43, but it's been stored up at my Dad's for about a year. I'll probably lose storage privileges around the end of the year. I decided that it will be a great project for me to learn how to weld.

How long have you had your Power Wagon? Are you actively working on it? What are your plans?

I second that. Don't let Jed see this or he'll be building one for himself. What, why would that be a bad thing? Hey Jed!

No, it's in a shed in the back yard.  It is not the "new" thing. :P

Hey, I read about a door somewhere in California just a day or two ago. IIRC, it was a 56 or 57. I don't remember which door. I'll see if I can find the information for you.

Man oh man, I'll bet Jed's PW would be nice if he built one. :o

Do you know if the doors are the same for '55 and '56 Power Wagons? It's in the Bay area, and I'm trying to find out the condition and availability. Where 'bouts do you live Ken? Thanks, John

I heard back regarding the door. It's not for the flat fender military truck. Besides, it's located at the wong end of the country.

That's pretty slick to have satellite dish mounted to the top of the cab. ;D It sure looked like it at first glance. There's a yearly Vintage Power Wagon run every June. They have a swap meet and it's held in Fairfield Iowa next year. This year I think it was held in Iowa. Last year it was held in Northern Cal. That might be a good place to find some doors. Check out their parts page and I think they have a for sale section.
