1955 Powell Truck

6 cylinders

Rear Wheel Drive

Manual Transmission


Rebuilt Title

Price $9,000 US dollars

I dont think I have ever seen a Powell Truck or ever heard of one. Only 1 picture was given in the ad. This car was built by the Powell Manufacturing Company in Compton, California. PMC was widely known for motor scooters that were popular in the 1940s. Between September 1954 and March 1957 they manufactured Sport Wagons. They were built on modified Plymouth chassis. Overall PMC built approximately 1,200 pickup trucks total. Its always fun for me to do research on a car that may not be an appreciating classic but something that deserves to be recognized as automotive history.

In Motor Life magazine, Oct 1955 issue, the PMC truck was called “an obvious choice as one of the most interesting and unique automobiles in the U.S.”

In the February 1956 issue of Motor Trend, magazine co-founder Walt Woron concluded his article: “The Powell Brothers, then, have succeeded in their purpose: to provide a vehicle that ‘… can’t be beat for general utility…[that makes] the perfect runabout or 2nd family car…'”
