Here’s a unique vehicle one does not see everyday. A 22 Window Mercedes-Benz G80 0319 from 1962.
The seller says it is 1/3 larger than a VW Bus, and it’s certainly a lot rarer. The first time I’ve seen one of these.
This vehicle makes a Vista Cruiser seem claustrophobic.
The original 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine has been replaced by a 6-cylinder GM motor, coupled to a 4 speed manual transmission.
I have never seen a Powell pickup, but there is one for sale down in Cleveland, GA. The Powell line of trucks, were built in Compton, California by the Powell MFG Company between the years 1954-57. Approximately 1200 pickups were manufactured by Powell.
The Powell had a pull out tool box/cylinder to the right of the tailgate. Perfect for fishing rods.
This Powell is powered by a Plymouth flathead six.
Powell was mainly known for building scooters and trail bikes. This 1954 Powell P-81 scooter is included in the sale. Both the bike and truck have been restored.
In addition to the 1200 pickups and over 10,000 scooters and trail bikes built, Powell also manufactured 300 station wagons and three motor homes.
The asking price for the pair is $16,000.
