Its beauty is only skin deep, but what’s under it is pretty good, too.

The latest build from North Carolina’s Desert Power Wagons is a 1952 Power Wagon that’s been thoroughly updated on a modern platform. The heavy duty model is one of the most iconic in history, but not the best daily driver.

The truck’s body has been swapped onto a last-generation Ram 2500 SLT 4×4 chassis powered by a 5.9-liter High-Output Cummins turbodiesel.

The inline-six-cylinder sends 305 hp and 555 lb-ft through a four-speed automatic transmission to heavy duty axles fitted with Yukon Gear high performance rings and pinions.
