I thought so! Its written weapon though.
i guess its running a different engine instead of original flathead 6, possibly in VEE configuration, hence no room for battery inside the bay.

There're interesting pictures on the 'Net of the whole convoy crossing a river; not much by way of road in sight. Apparently these were US World War II surplus.

There're more Power Wagons running in the US of A, of course, in various stages of maintenance. Most are utility support vehicles; run by power companies, telcos, and the like.

Could send you pictures OR url's if you're interested.
Yes, surely interesting. There were quite a number , post war too. Like the Jeeps of WW2 which were continued even after the war, Power Wagons were made upto the '60s.

Seems more like a tool box.
On our home made one-tons we have a braket for carrying a 20 ltrs jerricane.

It could be. I thought so because of black pipe thing that goes behind that.

Nice to see the 3D version of 1 ton.
Also it hows, that just by changing the tyres only, the vehicle speaks of attitude it got. I think it will be better to try out different possibilities one can have with his mod, by visualizing that in a 3D way.

I think it will look nice in Military Green OR Camouflage Color scheme with open top.

A combination of beige and dark tan looks fabulous on this vehicle. But donot multicolour the rims. They may be of the darker colour,ie, dark tan in this case.

Default Before TPC2008

Hi Guys,

Decided to try out the 4W73 for TPC2008.

Got the following things done.

1) Removed the doors.
2) Removed the floor plate - Gear box inspection cover.
3) Changed the Clutch Plate & Cover Assembly.
4) Attached a clevis hook to the winch Cable.
5) Added the Spare Rim & Tyre to the Vehicle.

For TPC2008
We drove
90+31+16+12+16+90 Kms on Road= 255kms on Road
15+15kms off-Road = 30kms (approx)
Fuel 54L +5L +18L + 32L = 109L of Petrol (I have about 10L remaining)
i.e 2.8Kmpl
On the highway I was getting a FE of 5-6kmpl.
