It’s all in a name. And if that name happens to be Tom Selleck and he’s auctioning off a restored 1-ton 1953 Dodge Power Wagon in stellar condition, you can expect to pay a higher than average amount.
At least that was the case Saturday in Connecticut where Barrett-Jackson reported auctioning off the TV star’s pickup for $121,000. Trucks in similar condition–sans the sheen of celebrity–are worth around $46,500, according to hagerty.com.
Barrett-Jackson’s website reports that the bright red, four-wheel-drive truck is equipped with a 230 cubic inch engine and a four speed manual transmission. The truck has only 18,960 original miles.
“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.
No word yet on whether Selleck ever woke up Mr. Higgins with that siren.
