There's a soft spot in our hearts for well-done resuscitation of vintage off-road iron. Perhaps the most notable company performing such restomod work is Icon 4x4, but the Californian outfit isn't the only company turning its attention to the down-and-dirty side of the vintage scene.

Legacy Classic Trucks in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is using the 2012 SEMA Show to display the Legacy Power Wagon. As its name implies, the truck started life many, many years ago as a Dodge Power Wagon (built between 1945 and 1980 – not to be confused with the current version), itself based on an older military design. In stock form, the Power Wagon was much loved for its stalwart ability to carry people and products over just about any terrain.

In the form you see above, the massively capable Power Wagon looks beefy enough to pull a freight train uphill through a snow storm... or something like that. As seen above, the Legacy Power Wagon would set back its buyer some $180,000. In base configuration, the truck runs $114,950. That's a huge sum, no doubt, but we're sure a few well-heeled buyers won't mind.

If nothing else, the Legacy Power Wagon Conversion is equipped with top-shelf componentry. The buyer can choose from either a 426-cubic-inch V8 with 425 horsepower from the Mopar parts book or a 3.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel four cylinder mill pounding out 480 pound-feet of torque. A range of transmission options are available, up to the stout Allison unit of the show truck.

All the specifications and options can be seen here, and we invite you to gaze at our high-res image gallery above.

        The price will be high. Quality is not cheap and never will be. You get what you pay for. Its worth every penny.

      Did anyone else have trouble getting Subarus out of their head upon reading "Legacy Power Wagon"?

      Interesting how it now takes well over $100k to make a REAL truck nowadays.

      Trying to out Icon Icon? If so, this is not a good trend unless you are a real estate developer, Saudi prince studying at UCLA, or a hedge fund manager. This is just like what happened to muscle cars about 10 years ago which took all of the fun out of owning a 72 383 road runner with a pistol shifter and made ownership in to an investment vehicle based on the understanding that some one was already willing to pay more at a Barrett Jackson auction.

      I like it a lot...but I need the full size bed with the crew cab.Oh...and it'd better be luxe interior wise. I mean sweet materials as well as modern creature comforts.I don't need airbags...but strong climate control & respectable electronics suite.
