my dad worked for the corps from the early 70's to about a year ago and he remembers these trucks being used by the rangers. my old boss gave the power wagon to me(he used it to haul hay bails around a pasture) with no title then i traded it to my dad to buy a motor for my car, he doesnt want me to totally restore it, but he still wants it in fairly decent condition ,which means power steering pump and gearbox ,front driveshaft, alignment, thermostat, alternator, which isnt a great deal ,but the body is beat up and i think the frame maybe bent,i can see how one side of the bed is lower than the other next to the cab by an inch or so ,it may be caused by something wrong with the rear suspension. its a terrific truck i don't have a problem with power ,but i still wouldnt mind puttin in a 318. With the front drive shaft out in 2WD (its all time 4wd) the thing is totally useless the transfer case jumps out of any range. any thoughts on the frame ,suspension, transfer case would be helpful.
