This classic 1969 Dodge A100 V8 Custom Pickup is a real life “Hot Wheels”. The Dodge A100 is a range of American compact vans and trucks manufactured from 1964 to 1970 by the Chrysler Corporation. The A100 competed with the Ford Econoline and Chevrolet Corvair Pickups. Placing the driver on top of the front axle with the engine near the front wheels is called a “cab over” vehicle. The Dodge A100 was featured on the 1960’s “Batman” TV series and the episode “Red’s Last Day” of the TV series “That 70’s Show”. The Dodge A100 has also appeared in the movie “Cars” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”. More often than not, it was the preferred getaway vehicle of each episode’s villain. As the VIN number indicates this is a 1969 Dodge A100 Pickup with an 8-cylinder engine that was built at the Warren, MI plant. Only 2,235 were built with the 8-cylinder engine which makes this a special piece. This pickup was completely restored in 2012. The body is extremely straight, and it has a high show quality paint job. The yellow and orange paint scheme was brilliantly designed. The orange side stripe fades with flames and the rear Mopar bumble bee stripe with A100 logo looks amazing. It sports a beautiful chrome grill, dual mirrors and “Hot Wheels” emblems. It has a new front windshield and all the remaining glass is in great condition. It has a great stance on the REV 15” wheels with BF Goodrich Radial T/A 225-70-15 tires. The bed was professionally Rhino- lined which gives the colors contrast. The restored yellow and black interior really complements the exterior. It sports a rear-view mirror, Sport Comp oil gauge and volt gauge, Budnik Dragon 15.5” steering wheel, bucket seats w/ seat belts and battery with custom cover. The heat and emergency brake are in working order. It’s powered by the factory 318 V8 engine that was factory rated with 210HP. The engine compartment was restored and shows well. The engine is concealed with a cover that removes very easily for accessibility. The engine breathes through a custom dual exhaust system with chrome tips. The engine runs and sounds great. The engine is coupled to a 3-speed manual column shift transmission. The transmission was rebuilt and shifts very smoothly. The undercarriage is very clean and presentable. The original owner’s manual is included. This Dodge A100 is a serious attention magnet and a blast to drive. This vehicle has recently been serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included.
