10 Classic Trucks So Rare, Top Collectors Can’t Find Them
1956 Powell Sport Wagon
If you happen to be a fan of classic mid-century trucks, you may have heard of Powell Manufacturing Company out of California. If not, let us introduce you to the 1956 Powell Sport Wagon, the first of our “10 Classic Trucks So Rare, Top Collectors Can’t Find Them” list. What makes this particular truck so special? Well, a couple of things, but let’s start with the basics. The Sport Wagons were made using 1941 Plymouth chassis’ – that’s right, all of these trucks were made using 1941 Plymouth chassis’ found at junkyards. From there, you also have a fiberglass nose piece complete with an oak front bumper. But what about that interesting Pez-like dispenser on the back? The Sports Wagon came equipped with this interesting little addition, an extendable storage box that we think would actually be quite handy. You won’t find Powell’s for sale often, but if you do you can usually score them for a reasonable price. This beauty hit Craigslist for just under $15,000 in 2014.
