Thanks for adding me to the Dodge Sweptline. I am now the owner of my 2nd Sweptline. I purchased a 1971 W200 back in August that was a New Holstein, Wisconsin Fire Department Brush unit for many years. I purchased it from a two owners away from the Fire Department.
This 71 W200 now has 20,400 miles, 318, 4 speed, 4 wheel drive, 4:10 gears, still has the following fire equipment: Red lights, siren, master electric power cut off switch on the dash, electric brake lock system, 8,000 # Warn winch, Pike Pole, large wrecking bar, and other fire equipment.
I had a 1970 Dodge Dude when I graduated from Military school in 1970. After a few years, I reluctantly traded it off and had regretted that for many years since.
I ran across this 1971 Power Wagon which reminded me of the 1970 Dude somewhat. You know the rest of the story, I had several conversations with the owner, we agreed on a price and I purchased it.
I have always been drawn to the Sweptline trucks. Clean, distinctive look, no frills, no nonsense, all truck.
Thanks again for letting me be member. Looking forward to learning more about these trucks.
