Tom Selleck’s ’53 Power Wagon Going On The Block Saturday  

Tom Selleck’s ’53 Power Wagon Going On The Block Saturday  

Next to Thomas Magnum’s Ferrari, this may be the coolest vehicle Tom Selleck ever drove.

A 1953 Dodge Power Wagon once owned by the mustachioed “Blue Bloods” star is set to be auctioned at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Northeast event in Connecticut this Saturday, June 25th.

The bright red 4×4 pickup features a 230 cubic inch straight-six engine, four-speed manual transmission and two-speed transfer case. It has 18,960 miles on its odometer, but was restored less than 100 miles ago.

As a former fire service truck, it has a working siren and power take offs for its winch and auxiliary equipment, which includes a built-in water pump. Its 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.

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 Insurance.
