Desert Power Wagons look old, but they're really new—with fresh Tisdale Coachworks bodywork riding on either a custom chassis or new Ram running gear. Prices start at $385,000.

This 2024 Desert Power Wagon sports a 385-hp, 6.7-liter Cummins diesel inline-six—modern Ram power under a body that looks like it's from 1948.

The Desert Power Wagon front bumper is made to house a winch. A big one.

If the King internal-bypass dampers don't give away the game, the modern wheels do.

The rear-hinged rear doors are always a hit.

Savvy readers will recognize those front seats as Cadillac items.

This interior mostly hews to a retro aesthetic, but buyers can also drape this body over a new Ram chassis and interior.

An original 1948 Desert Power Wagon didn't have Apple CarPlay. This one does.

The rear bench seat is custom, as is the wood and metal door trim.

On the custom Tisdale Coachworks chassis, the Power Wagon has a regular size bed. On the new Ram chassis, the frame rails and suspension dictate a shallower bed with a much higher floor.

That bed looks too pretty to use, but owners do work their Power Wagons. One owner is a commercial fisherman who hauls gear.

Guess which one of these got more attention?

Here's the rare case of a tow vehicle worth about 15 times as much as the boat behind it.

This truck will have the modern interior and Ram chassis. The base price for that configuration is $425,000.
