Mark Lefler's 1978 Dodge truck

Mark is the third owner of this 1977 Macho Power Wagon. It has the original 360ci engine, 727 automatic transmission, and full-time 203 transfer case. The prior owner painted it Viper Red back in 1998, and failed to put back on the Macho package accessories. In 2007, Mark picked up this rust-free truck from the desert and drove it all the way home. Immediately after he got it home, he spent 30 hours hand rubbing the exterior to bring the paint job back to life.

Mark has owned the Power Wagon for two and half years now and has made it his daily driver. During this time, he has added a factory tilt steering column (thanks to Mopar Truck Parts), installed a factory air dash, put on custom exhaust, and added a factory-style delay wiper system. His future upgrade plans include installing a 5.7L Hemi, painting it Deep Water Blue Pearl, and putting on Mickey Thompson SideBiter rims.
