Now in Glorious Color!
The idea is that this is a barn find, discovered after about two decades under a leaky roof. After being extricated from beneath a pile of gunny sacks, the truck is simply cleaned, polished, and given a mechanical once over. No new paint or other cosmetic work. Not sure if you could match that color, anyway. It was a custom mix, and no one can find the original recipe.
Besides, isn't this the style, now? A hard earned rustic patina that no amount of money can fake?
Of course, the question remains; is it possible to do this to a four wheel drive Power Wagon and keep it four wheel drive?
If it is, it would be at or very near the apex of awesomeness.
