Tom Selleck of “Magnum P.I.” and “Blue Bloods” fame is selling his 1-ton 1953 Dodge Power Wagon.
Barrett-Jackson will be auctioning off the bright red, four-wheel-drive pickup Saturday morning in Connecticut.
Barrett-Jackson’s website reports that the truck, with only 18,960 original miles, has a 230 cubic inch engine that’s paired up with a four speed manual transmission.
“It features a PTO winch and a PTO water pump for drawing water from a stagnant source,” Barrett-Jackson reports.
Drawing water from a stagnant source? Yep. According to foxnews.com, the pickup is a former fire service truck that was restored less than a 100 miles ago and features a working siren.
“It’s black vinyl upholstery and trim is new, but it still has its original steering wheel and dash. Its bed has been rebuilt and is floored with new 5/4 oak planks,” Fox News reports.
Online bids will be accepted. According to hagerty.com, trucks in similar condition are worth about $46,500.
Barrett-Jackson doesn’t offer pre-sale estimates for its lots, but standard Power Wagons in top condition without the celebrity cache are currently worth around $46,500, according to Hagerty.
No word yet on whether Selleck ever woke up Mr. Higgins with that siren.
