Welcome To The Workgoats Homepage
The only workgoats I have now are me and a truck or two
This site has dropped the information about goats since I don't raise goats any more. It is doubtful if they will return.
I will be dedicating the site to document the building of a truck for a daily driver. Not just any truck, a 1957 Power Giant.
I wish I had the money and time to restore it but since I don't, I will modernize the drive train and drive it as a daily driver.
Click on any of my pages in the menu to the left. If you find information that needs to be corrected or have a goat question, please feel free to contact me at: email@example.com
The latest additions will cover the building of a new vehicle. I am nearing the end of the process to secure a bonded title. The truck was last tagged in the mid 60s. As soon as my bond arrives from the bonding company I will be headed to the tax office to finish.
I will also be sharing some of the work done on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I drive daily. It was bought sight unseen from an on line auction and came from Odessa.
Is it a Power Wagon or a Power Giant?
Dodge was the first of the major companies to make a factory 4 wheel drive truck with civilian sheet metal. Although they tagged it with "Power Wagon" on the hood, the official Power Wagon of that time was still the flat fender military truck. The official designation was Power Giant. The 1957 truck was a one year body style. Although the cab and the bed were used for a number of years, the doors, fenders, grille and hood were only manufactured for 1957.
The truck was purchased from a friend in Kerrville, Texas. You can see another of his Dodges in the background. That's a pretty neat truck and I'll put some pictures of it on the sight soon. It has been off roading with us several times.
