Heath Lamping's 1978 Dodge Macho Power Wagon
Heath owns a 1978 Dodge Macho Power Wagon 360, 2BBL automatic 727 fulltime 4WD (all standard). It also has the Macho package, stripes call outs, roll bar lights, bucket seats, black bumpers (rear is a non step) 31 10.5 tires mounted on 15x8 black wagon wheels, Custom 150 badges on side and Power Wagon badges on the hood, sliding back window, factory a/c and cruise control.
Heath plans to get it running this winter, then next spring he is going to tear it down and redo the paint and body. It will have headers and dual exhaust, painted frame and axles (front is a Dana 44 and the rear is a 9 1/4 12 bolt), a 4 inch lift and 33 x 12.5 inch tires (not enough to need a ladder but enough to hop a bit up into it). The rollbar will be repainted, the offroad lights redone and the wheels redone. While he's at it, he is going to try and find a way to clean up the wires and maybe add an aluminum radiator. Heath said he would send us infomation and pictures as he progresses.
