1960 Dodge D100 Pickup
In the 1960's car buying was an adventure with dealers at the
advantage, and plenty of added on items were real profit
generators, and Dodge Dealers were no exceptions. Modern buyers
might be amused by some of the options - heater at $49.70 or
$68.10, depending on whether fresh air intake was desired; rear
view mirror ($3.30); turn signals ($20 to $28.50); AM radio ($59);
and right-side sun visor ($3). Buyers could also opt for a
one-quart oil-bath type air cleaner at $6.60 on sixes or $8 on V8,
replacing the standard air cleaner; chrome-plated front bumper for
$14; and larger capacity oil filter for $9.30 on the six.
For consignment, a snazzy street rodded, shaved, eye candy colored
Dodge D100, with some awesome mods. A smooth runner, originally
bought at the age of 14 by the consigner who was going to use it as
his everyday driver, then his fancy changed to another daily
Dripping (not literally!) in Sunburst Orange Paint in excellent
condition, this step side slammed truck sports ultra-cool shiny
Foose wheels all around. Factory fenders, and all straight and
true, watching it sit still it appears as moving...how'd they do
that?! Upfront the modifications include a shaved bumper, color
coordinated painted bezels for the duals, and a pristine badged
grille. A quasi wraparound front windshield nestles nicely being
the original shaped big hood and is trimmed with shiny stainless.
What little chrome that peppers this truck is in excellent
condition. The bed is lined with all-weather gray carpet, and the
tailgate and rear have been smoothed of badging and the bumper area
is cleanly shaved.
A swing of the solid doors and we see the original door design with
a swooping gunmetal gray vinyl panels with inset power window
controls. Jumping inside we land on cushy cloth 2 tone high back
buckets, covered in cloth. These flank a center console/armrest. An
exterior matching dash with a Jetsons era shaped instrument cluster
is embedded with new RPM gauges in a machined swirl aluminum
background. Simple but elegant and dripping with early 60's jet age
style. Protruding from that iconic dash is an adjustable aluminum
rally steering wheel. All weather gray carpet, which matches the
bed is seen flooding the floor, and a nice sprayed metal headliner.
Noted are power steering and power brakes which have been added
during the rebuild.
Hold on tight as this roller coaster has a 350ci Chevy Crate
Engine, topped by an Edelbrock 600, and backed up by a Saginaw
4-speed manual transmission. The engine bay is clean enough to eat
off of, but then you would soil it! Power goes back to an 8" Ford
rear. Consigner stated that this truck idles for a while the water
temp will rise due to a small flex fan, otherwise it is a
Well done and preserved as no rust is seen, and all is clean and
green...well, black. Dual exhaust from headers snakes its way to
the sides through dual cherry bombs and makes its way out of chrome
tips which peek out just below the diamond plated stepsides.
Progressive rear springs, in the D-100 models, automatically
compensate for changing loads. Tension-type rear spring shackles
aid stability, reduce noise, and need no lubrication. Mustang II
front axles with semi- and full-floating rear axles provide
Sexy Sunburst Orange, A 350ci Crate Engine, Foose Wheels, and a
retro dash, and we have a winner! Actually, it's a street rodded
D-100, and it has won some awards, so both are true. This is a
shining star in our halls here at Classic Auto Mall, so come on
